Jeremiah 24:7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and
they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with
their whole heart.

A God Shaped Hole

I searched, I waited, I fantasized
Schemes I concocted, plans I devised
Confident I could do my part
To fill that God shaped hole in my heart

I begged, I borrowed and compromised
Revised, disguised and advertised
Pursuing the piece to make me whole
To fill that God sized void in my soul

I went to and fro, up and down
Looked here and there, looked all around
Only finding keys to discontentment and strife
Trying to open the God like lock in my life

I sought aid from strangers, family and friends
They only failed me and could not make amends
I could not understand  why a fissure was left
As I tried to fill that God shaped cleft

Oh the chasm that plagued me, the emptiness looming
the hollowness weighing, the vacancy dooming
The cavity persisted, the vacuity followed
As I tried to fill that God fitted hollow

So much tmie wasted in pursuit
Not following His footsteps, but my ill chartered route
Seeking Hi hands, yet not His face
Trying to fill that God patterend space

Father please fill this unfilled position
Supply me, occupy me, you're my only ambition
I come to You, Creator, Source of my soul
For only You can fill this God shaped hole.
