    I want something better, something new.
    I want to be known for something too.
    I need a life with purpose and drive.
    I need something to over fill my pride.
    Give me the life with a goal in mind.
    Give me the life where I’m not blind.
    I don’t know if I can take this much longer.
    I don’t know if I can feed this thirst, this hunger.
    The days go by with no regard.
    Another day wasted, another day barred.
    If something is gonna happen it needs to happen soon.
    Because I’m dying to hear some tune.
    Give me something to work on and love.
    Give me a way to reach for up and above.
    A plan, a guide, a goal, or a dream.
    I just want something to make me believe…

      I know just what will satisfy
      this ever unquenchable thirst
      But I warn you it may not be quite
      What you were looking for at first.
      If you want to know,
      I will tell you what I know.
      Comment here and ask me,
      I’ll tell you what is lasting.

      I have found meaning in God. I have found that nothing fills and comforts and challenges like the love of Jesus Christ. I was going to live life my own way, be a teacher and I was going to be happy. But God asked me to do more than I ever thought I could. He asked me to serve the poor and needy, to step out of the typical path of life, to give up things. I am still scared to do it, but nothing has ever been more motivating, more real, more true to me. I can see now that I was made for this. I was made to go and serve people. And I don’t do it for myself, I do it for God. I love Him. More than I will ever love anyone else. He is the one who sacrificed everything for me. How can I not sacrifice my life to HIm? It isn’t even sacrifice because He is so filling and loving. But your life can’t be given halfway. You’ve got to give everything. Not just the parts you want to. I don’t know if this will help you because it may not be what you thought you were looking for. But I promise, if you give it all, you will find the meaning you are searching for. You were created in love. Created, not just produced, but designed with care and artistry. He wants you to know Him, to love Him and to be loved by Him. That is the answer I have for you. Take it or leave. I know it is the truth, I don’t need to defend it, it speaks for itself to hose who listen. I truly hope it helps you. That God will use these words to reach you. That you will find meaning, purpose, conviction and drive. That is what I have to share that is lasting, that will quench your thirst. It may not be what you expected but there it is.
