the meaning of life

the Meaning of Life is a question;
It’s a picture I can’t quite describe.
the Meaning of Life is an unending search
through a world we must learn to abide.

I paused for a minute to find It;
I wanted to see what It was.
but somehow my sightlines were guarded,
and I couldn’t find answers at all.

I decided right then just to leave It alone;
it seemed such a meaningless quest.
but surrender is right where He left It.

if I live with the joy of the Spirit,
learn to love with the heart of my God,
if I walk through this world eyes-wide-open,
I have found It, and I am at rest.
