I’ve been reading your stories about how you have also felt that longing for God’s unconditional love. Isn’t it such a process? The day I described in Friday’s post was just the first time I realized what I had been looking for and where I would find it. But clinging to it, living in it and believing that His love is enough to satisfy me – is a daily journey.
One of my favorite verses is in the Psalms when Davids asks God to “satisfy him in the morning with HIS unfailing love, so that he could sing for joy all of his days”. (Psalm 90:14) Very rarely do we just wake up satisfied. We have to come to Him each day with our empty cup, our thirsty heart and ask God to satisfy the longing that only He can fill on a continual never ending basis. Heather said that this is a verse that she and a friend are praying for each other. I love that idea.
So that is what I am going to do today, pray that God would satisfy me and each of you with HIS unfailing love. I am asking Him to fill us with a sweet sense of joy knowing that every bit of love we long for, we can find in Him.
But before we go, we need a winner. Thanks to random integer selection, commenters #16 and # 30, are the winners of this weekend’s give-away “Searching for Satisfaction” which is a message based on what we’ve been talking about.
Congratulations Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org and Bonelle Pagel. I’ll be in touch to get your mailing addresses.
Have a wonderful Labor Day!
