My Flesh

My flesh asks for more
my flesh asks for now
it does not want to wait
desires to be satisfied quickly
rather than wait for the best
My spirit aches with a longing for Your way
to sit
to pray
to sing
to spend as much time with You a lone as possible
not to rush to find satisfaction elsewhere
My spirit seeks to live life with a God who is jealous for my attention
for my time and affection
to give you all my heart
my flesh fights
my flesh is foolish
yet He is greater who lives in me
He has overcome
