WE’RE HUNGRY, LORD

We’re hungry for something, Lord.

We have so much rich food and cake and candy for ourselves, but we’re hungry.

People around us are so stiff and tight and hard to reach.

And they make us that way.

But we’re hungry for something more.

People we know keep talking about great ideas, brilliant questions, and the problem of God’s existence. 

But we’re hungry for You, not ideas or theories.

We want You to touch us, to reach inside us and turn us on.

There are so many people who will counsel us to death.

But we’re hungry for someone who really knows You and has You, someone who can get so close to us that we can see You there. 

We have so many things, but we’re hungry for You.

Deep, deep down inside we’re hungry, even if we appear to be silly, lazy, or unconcerned at times. 

We’re hungry for Your kind of power and love and joy.

Feed us, Lord, feed us with Your rich food.

  2. You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Ps. 145: 16

    He is the Bread of Life!

  3. “We are hungry, we are hungry, we are hungry for more of You”

  4. ‘Man cannot live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God’. There are many man-made words but when the Lord speaks it is truely life giving and sustains all the drought seasons of our heart.

    Amen more of you Lord!

    Here is the entire poem:
    We are hungry Lord,
    We are hungry for something Lord,
    We have so much-rich food, cake and candy for ourselves,
    But we are hungry.
    People around us are so stiff and tight and hard to reach,
    They make us that way too.
    But, Oh Lord, we are hungry for something more.

    People we know keep talking about great ideas,
    Questions, brilliant questions, intheproblem of God’s existence.

    But we are hungry for YOU, not ideas, not theories, not even theology.
    We are hungry for You.

    We want You to touch us,
    To reach down inside us, and turn us on.
    We want to know somebody who knows You.

    There are many people who are willing to counsel us to death,
    But we are hungry for someone who knows You.

    and You can get so close to us that we will know You too, That we can see You then, We have so many things, but we are hungry.

    Deep, deep down inside, we are hungry,
    Oh, we may appear to be silly, lazyt, or even unconcerned at times,
    But we are hungry.

    We are hungry for Your kind of power, for Your kind of love.
    For Your kind of joy, for Your kind of peace.
    Yes, the world is hungry.
