Kinda hard not to.

Angry at growing older

Angry at not being able to eat anything in sight without getting fat

Angry at allergies

Angry at finances

Angry at people who promise one thing and deliver another

Angry at sleeping alone

Angry at my dog for destroying his plastic pool

And angry at Walmart for not carrying them anymore because they are “seasonal”

 

Now that that’s off my chest…

I wrote Desire when I was in my early 20s for a girl who had spent most of  her life trying to make it as a musician without much visible (financial) success. She was so hurt and frustrated that when I prayed for her, I felt nothing but hopelessness. And fatigue. She was exhausted from a lifetime of keeping her chin up.

I knew the Lord loved her and she Him, and that sometime in her life He would fulfill her dreams. But how do you convey that to another person convincingly?  I ended up writing what I felt God wanted me to say to her in a song. She eventually was in not one but two of the most successful Contemporary Christian Music bands of the 80’s and 90’s.

And my song had several thousand downloads from internet sales.

 

Desire (By Paisley Yankolovich)

 

Don’t go to sleep angry

Don’t try to dream while you’re afraid

I sure love you

 

The rest of the world won’t listen

As you tell me just how you fell

I’ve been there too

 

And the passion that you’re seeking

Yes, the passion that you’re seeking is real

 

Jesus gave you your Desire

Now he plans to fulfill it

Jesus started your hearts fire

He knows He has

He won’t kill it

 

You hands they long to touch

All that means so much to you

Seems so out of reach

 

But there’s a ship that’s coming in

And it’s got on it your name

It’s all for you

 

And I know that it’s gonna

Yeah, it’s gonna withstand the rain

 

Jesus gave you your Desire

Now he plans to fulfill it

Jesus started your hearts fire

He knows He has

He won’t kill it

 

And I promise that tomorrow

That tomorrow won’t be the same…

 

Jesus gave you your Desire

Now he plans to fulfill it

Jesus started your hearts fire

He knows He has

He won’t kill it
