Hooked on Jesus
Hooked on Jesus
Seeking and searching and trying to find
Looking to fulfill this desire that is aching this heart of mine
My body shakes and shivers desperately seeking relief
I need a hit to succumb to these phennings…
Old addictions don’t seem to suffice
I longed for many things that would only give a temporary high
They came with promises of fulfillment but once it was done
I was back on the floor looking for more
Scuffling, shuffling and searching for that next score.
I thought maybe it I focused on money and things
It would quench that desire
But it turned on me and just as I had quickly acquired it
It flew out of my hand
Like a bird in the air, it fluttered with all my cares
Maybe friends would fill the gap,
But I only put myself in a trap
A trap that bound me to their earthly wants, desires, needs and requests.
I was stuck in a conundrum and couldn’t get out
Now definitely this hole could be filled with the presence and relationship of a man
Who promised the moon, stars, sea and sky?
But little did I know that his wandering eyes and two faced loyalty
Flipped over any plans that I conjured and held to wholeheartedly
Maybe just maybe I thought, If I turn to me, I could get myself out of this misery.
Making plans, writing lists living a life of a I’mma do me
With no respect of biblical authority
I lead myself on a crooked and jagged path, filled with confusion and utter disillusion.
All those addictions left me in a conniption
Jacked up and tore up even more then where I started from
And that’s when a still quiet voice said…
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Because all that you have been looking for, you can find in Me.
You get a taste of Me and you will never be the same.
You get a drink and you will feel my waters flow
Every place that yearns and longs for something,
I will fill it and give you even more
And daughter, just to let you know, there is no drug like me.
Instead of having you jacked up
I will back you up with the arms of my protection
Instead of you being stressed and depressed
I will leave you blessed and a success.
There is no high like me because I will take you to the heavenlies
Just come and see
What I will bring…
And my answer was yes…
