The Closer I Get

The closer I get to Him
Seems the less I know
Yet He tells me to come closer
He says that I must grow

But He remains a bit elusive
So difficult to reach
So aloof, so exclusive
How can He really teach?

How can He teach about closeness?
How can He teach about love?
What can He say about happiness?
From way up there above.

He’s unsearchable, unknowable
No matter how hard I try
And yet when I call upon Him
He is standing there right by

He says if I truly knew Him
I’d know that He’s uknown
Then within the same moment
He calls me His precious own

What a conundrum of questions
A complex set of rules
When I try to tell others
They count me with fools

Yet this God is so real
He gives me a personal touch
Then I realize if I knew all
I’d indeed know way too much

For He alone deserves glory
He alone deserves praise
So I can completely trust His heart
When I don’t understand His ways

One day I will only know Him fully
As I myself am fully known
When I move from this earthly tent
And into my heavenly home

Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Ro 11:33  O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
