The Answer


Sometimes my heart wanders up and down

Searching for an answer

For what I think I need

To be safe.

Is it this?

Is it that?


Sometimes my heart runs circles around and around

Searching for an answer

For what I think I need

To be secure.

Could it be this thing?

Should I try that way?


Sometimes my heart flutters and shudders

Searching for an answer

For what I think I need

To be serene.

What if I go there?

What if I do that?


And then a knock awakens me

My knees bend down at the sound

I look up and I hear the answer,

“Am I not enough for you?”


His voice – so tender, so clear.

His presence – so bright and near.

I stop wandering.

I stop searching.

I stop asking.

And my heart gazes upon the only answer

For what I know I need to be

Safe, secure, serene.


My God, You are enough for me.
