Looks shiny, like it could be something good
Been here before yet it always seems different at first
We long for a better day in this fragile shell of being
Tis our nature and a hunt that can only be satisfied in Christ.
He is the One who satisfies our soul
More glorious than the reflection of an earthly sun
Fulfillment leaving no corners empty or draining
Uplifting, transforming even if our frame stays the same.
For off in the distance is not a new truck or cure or home
Down the road is the answers to all for which our hearts long
Nothing in this life will ever compare to His love
I grieve for those whose gaze falls short, never winning the race of life.
We have arrived at “The Station” at the top of the mountain
When we accept His offer of grace
And the journey will be meaningful in ALL of its parts
Each road trip a destination worth the taking in the end. Amen.
