By Christine Hare Tate

In my pursuit of happiness
I must confess to you,
I sought after temporal things
the way most people do.

I was self-indulgent
with an emptiness within,
not aware my intentions
were governed by my sin.

Then Jesus came along
and my desires changed,
I entered a new realm
as my life God re-arranged.

I had been deceived
in my quest for pleasure
until Jesus offered me
an everlasting treasure.

When I gave my life to Jesus
a brand new one began;
now I desire the Lord
and the Father’s perfect plan.


‘For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith,
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God,
not by works, so that no one can boast…
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away
have been brought near through the blood of Christ.’
[Ephesians 2:8-9 & 13]
