The Whole Bowl

Have you ever wanted something so bad?

You knew that you didn’t need it, but it was like it was silently calling for you.

You try to run away as fast as you can.

Then, when you’ve escaped and thought you were safe.

Here comes the temptation again, all up in your face.

You start having these angelic conversations, convincing yourself by saying; it won’t hurt if I just had a taste.

Then, you get a sample and it’s oh so good.

Darn it, I’d eat this whole darn bowl if I could.

Sweet to my whole entire body,

I mean it’s like my favorite peanut butter cookies, once I eat one, nobody can stop me.

It’s so delicious; it makes me smile all over.

I’m looking at the time saying, I don’t want this to ever be over.

Have you ever wanted something so bad and needed it at the same time?

I’m glad that I waited on the Lord this time.

Sweet treats for the obedient.

It’s what I needed and wanted this time.

All the sugar I want and need, it’s mine all mine.
