I’m satisfied with Jesus….I’m satisfied with Jesus, I’m satisfied with Jesus in my heart…this is a song that I used to hear the older folks sing at church when I was a little girl. They would go on to say…He’s my bread and water when I get hungry and thirsty and so on….I did not understand that song back then. It made no sense to my little creative and logical mind. Now, I know and realize that it is a dangerous thing to not allow Christ Jesus to bring satisfaction into our hearts….If we don’t…we will be prone to wander and run after other lovers! We will search for love in all the wrong places. We will do all we can to fill the void within by attaching our selves to Other gods……..So yes, I love my Spouse and my family but I love them in their rightful place….Jesus has a seat on the throne of my heart…I pray for the grace to keep it that way!
For the past week I have been seriously taking a look at my inner life. My soul. My thoughts. My cravings. My desires. I invite you to do the same thing. Spend those extra moments with the Lord and ask Him to show you YOU! Examine your own thoughts and see how much is junk and how much is Godly and productive. Pray and fast. Seek change through entering into the presence of the Almighty God. Let Him satisfy every void place and wait for Him to fulfill every promise to you.
