Day 4: Satisfied Fully


WHAT IF GOD

gave you everything that you asked for~

would you be satisfied?

Close your eyes and picture it~

your perfect life.

What would it look like?

What would you look like?

Where would you live?

Who would be with you?

What would you be doing?

Your perfect life.

What if GOD gave you everything that you asked for?

I just wrote a list of all of the answered prayers & blessings from

GOD~

and you know what~

I am ever so thankful

but you know what~

these answers are

never enough to change my heart

to fulfill me fully

as there is always this aching void in my heart

that desires so much more.

Is it~

More answered prayer? More perfection? More __________?

So what if GOD gave you everything that you asked for..

Would you be SATISFIED?

BUT WHAT IF GOD

gave you everything that you didn't even ask for

&

didn't even deserve~

Would you be SATISFIED?

Now that stings. Think about it.

As I go about my "half glass filled" days, just craving more of something to fill my cup,

I feel

GOD'S

gentle nudging to look up.

And I ignore

HIM

because I am too focused on what I don't have that I want to have.

And then

GOD

does the unthinkable,

HE

leaves me alone

& waits & waits & waits

as I continue to seek out the "perfect" something to fill my cup.

And then

GOD

does the unthinkable.

HE

gently calls my name

&

I question~

Is that you GOD? Are you calling little ole me?

I stand like a little girl waiting to be reprimanded ,

BUT instead

GOD does the unthinkable.

HE looks into my eyes that lead straight to my heart

&

HE does the unthinkable~

NOTHING.

HE just looks back into my eyes that lead straight to my heart,

as tears fill my eyes

as that is all HE has to do as all that is all I have to do is to

BE STILL~

and then, and only then

does my "half filled glass" become overfilled with so much of

HIM

that I am fully satisfied.

So WHAT IF GOD

gave you everything that you didn't even ask for & don't even deserve ~

Would you be SATISFIED~

"JESUS replied to them, “I am the Bread of Life. The one who comes to ME will never be hungry, and the one who believes in ME [as SAVIOR] will never be thirsty

[for that one will be sustained spiritually](John 6:35)
