Searching for the meaning of life (a poem and a Bob Dylan’s song: Make you feel my love)

How often we search for the meaning of life from gods, lords, and what not, to fill this void that we got?

 

We search for success
we search for fame
we search for love
and man’s acclaim

We search for money
we search for sex
we search for man’s acceptance
something that we’ll always lack

We search for cars
we search for potions
we search for looks
as a mask for confidence

We search for roads
we search for lanes
we search for new addresses
as our means for escape

We search for gods
we search for lords
we search everywhere
oblivious that from the beginning till the end—He is God.


Dear you,
May your searching leads you to the One who loves you, and who’ll always love you.


Though this song from Bob Dylan is not a worship or gospel song, the moment I heard it from Spotify—I felt as if God is expressing His love for me. I hope you’ll find comfort in this song and the next one below.

Make you feel my love lyrics (Bob Dylan)
[Verse 1]
When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

[Verse 2]
When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

[Verse 3]
I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

[Verse 4]
I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

[Verse 5]
The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet


Amazed lyrics
You dance over me
While I am unaware
You sing all around
But I never hear the sound
Lord, I’m amazed by you
Lord, I’m amazed by you
Lord, I’m amazed by you
How you love me

You paint the morning sky
With miracles in mind
My hope will always stand
For you hold me in your hand
Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
How you love me

Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
How you love me
How wide, how deep, how great, is your love for me
How wide, how deep, how great, is your love for me

Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
Lord I’m amazed by you
How you love me
Lord you love me
