My Purpose - Poem by Julia Pascual

I used to think I'd get by just fine
I have a nice family, a lot of friends
I did think I needed nothing more
'Til I had to see the beginning in the end

I always thought what I had was enough
Until the day came that I had to think back
Am I really satisfied with what I have?
But why do I feel there are things that lack?

There's this longing within me
To have someone else
Someone who could save me
Who could make my heart melt

I craved for something
Something more than what I had
Something beyond any comparison
Beyond any doubt I've had

I learned new things
Things like faith and trust
I had new perspectives
One is that to believe is a must

I learned that I was selfish
The center of the world is not me
For it is no one but Him
He, who's been looking after me

Now I know I can never get by
Without Him by my side
I know I need Him now
And forever, if He wouldn't mind

I was created by Him
Not to live my life the way I wanted to
I was created to live my years
Upholding His glory in all that I do

I am breathing for one reason
Because He wanted me to
It was in his plans for me to see
The fields so green and the sky so blue

There is nothing more I could do
But to give him the praise He deserves
There is nothing more that I could offer
But my body, all of me, down to the nerves

All of me I'm giving back to You
Use me in accordance to Your will
Make me a tool in upholding Your name
I know my dreams You will make real

To lift everything I am
This I will do
And this will never be enough
But I do hope this can prove You

That I am here
Because of You
And I will stay here
To worship You

I will sing songs about You
I will do works that are good
All that I am is my offering to You
And with that, my purpose has been renewed
