Poem: I Hunger for You, Yashua!
Have you ever experience hunger? I mean real hunger!
I was serving in the South African army for two years and during that time we were experiencing real hunger.
For days we did not sleep nor eat. We were in the bush, kilometers from civilization and our food had run out. You came to a place of desperation and would eat any thing you could find to eat.
I told myself that I would never come to such place again in my life, if it was in my hands.
Hunger is one of the most horrifying experiences you could have. Imagine no food for days.
Even worse, when hunger becomes your enemy, it starts to kill you slowly, day by day, moment.
Then I met Jesus and became hungry for Him. I now have the same hunger in my soul!
Here is a look into my most inner longing that can only be satisfied by His Spirit.
I hunger for You Lord.
My being hungers for you
Every thought lingers on You
Hunger pains slowly eating me
The thought of death, easing me
Every nerve, every pain, a step closer
Home coming into Your arms I'll be
Hunger no more an enemy,
to beat a constant pain of death
My hunger much more than this pain
The thought lingers on nourishment
You will satisfy all my needs, You said
A promise I will never forget
Weak and dying, Almost unhearing
I call you Name, Yeshua, Yeshua,
Please give me a hand, I am ready
Slowly bending to the earth, to die
Softly and kindly You come, gently lifting me
Your Hunger is satisfied, my precious one
never remember this Hunger again,
Perfect you will be, come in and see
Pain is gone my Lord, hunger no more
I am whole, perfect in my youth
My skin so clean, so radiant, so white
This new robe made for me, so pure
Drink from the river and eat from life’s tree
Suffering never named in this place again
Abundance is yours forever, pain no more
Loving care is yours, your faith till the end.
Be satisfied forever more, He said
No, Lord you are my Hunger
More than my longing for food, so long ago
My longing is for You, satisfied by You. Forever
