Grasping for The Wind

Sep 2013    

I searched in my heart how to gratify my flesh… while guiding my heart with wisdom… I made my works great… I acquired male and female servants… So I became great… Therefore I hated life because The work that was done was grievous to me, for all is vanity and grasping for the wind… God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy To a man who is good in His sight…”

Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 (NKJV)

We seek satisfaction
In material treasure;
And gratification

In personal pleasure.

We seek achievements
To gain fame;
And build monuments

To establish our name.

But selfish ambitions
Of every kind;
Are mere illusions,

A grasping for the wind.

O God, our Creator give
Knowledge, joy, and wisdom;
To enable us to live

Your way in Your kingdom.
