Honest Musings: More Than Gold

I have been meditating on the song titled “More Than Gold” by Judikay and I have been inspired to share on what it means to me, in this season and generally.

But first, here is the song:

Lately, I have been in a season which, all things being equal, should be one of my happiest ever. Almost everything I ever prayed for has come to fruition. Unfortunately, in this very season, I have been feeling more empty and lost than usual.

At first, I couldn’t put an exact finger on why the feelings were that way. I took a few steps back and begun evaluating my relationship with God and with people that matter most to me. I very quickly found myself lacking. I then realized that in this fast paced life full of various goals, ambitions and desires, I slacked in keeping my relationship with God as intense and consistent as it should be. The emptiness was a longing, a yearning… for a flame that once burnt so brightly.

As a deer pants for water, so my soul longs for you …

The song by Judikay really speaks volumes when it comes to the reality of the void in worldly possessions and achievements. God is truly all that is more than gold. One could “have it all” but without God, there really would be no contentment or peace. He is after all, the only one that gives peace that surpasses all human understanding.

” More than riches, more than life… Jesus is more than Gold…”

So, in this season, I am being intentional about re-igniting the flame. I love that scripture assures me that once I draw close to Him, He will draw close to me. Such a blessed assurance.

“Sweet Jesus, you’re the eyes that I see through. Sweet Jesus, I am dancing to your tune …”

Pray for me as I pray for you.

As day breaks

As day breaks

The heart wakes

To sounds of unending melody

A serene remedy

As day breaks

The earth shakes

Revolving around the sun

Light triumphing over darkness

As day breaks

The mind works

Rising above previous disappointments

Showing up for all appointments.
