Running in circles

The exhilaration was real,
The feelings were real, 
I thought to myself,
Where will all these go.

I hid the Christ in me,
And threw myself into the potent pool, 
Yes enjoyed myself for a moment still.

Chasing the wind everyday,
Knowing that it was not the way,
Running in circles,
Refusing to be gathered.

The cost is real,
The feelings are real,
But the goal is greater still.
So Abba I pray,
Keep me close.
