I’ve been looking for You

I get cravings throughout the day
To glance at my phone:
Hoping for a notification,
Checking for messages;
For reassurance that someone loves me
For a reminder that my contributions matter
For something to distract me.
But when I think deeply enough
I realize I am looking for something deeper,
Something I have perceived from a distance
Yet never quite grasped.
It has always been there
Yet somehow has always eluded me.
Before I could give a name to it
When I thought school would teach it
Or money would buy it
Or an embrace could fill it.
I have come to find that
What I have been looking for my whole life
Is not a thing but a Person.
All along, the it I have been searching for
Is You.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Psalm 34:8-10
