"Ain't got no satisfaction..."

holy experience

It's a Holy Dissatisfaction...   I'm content.  I know I am blessed.  I know that I am blessed infinitely beyond what I deserve.  I'm content. I'm filled with gratitude. But I'm not satisfied.

"Nothing in this life, can ever truly satisfy, the desires of your heart." Justin Rizzo

Not a bigger house...
Nor redecorating the house I have...
Not another lovely handbag, or pair of fabulous shoes...
Not a wonderful vacation...
Not a perfectly attentive, romantic husband...
Not children or grandchildren who rise up and call me blessed...

I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You]. Psalm 17:15 

Yes, I am content.  I am grateful.  But only Jesus satisfies.                    

Thank You God for...

232) An unexpectedly relaxing M.L.K. day

233) A young handyman in our church who knew what was wrong with my washer and was able to fix it

234) God's financial provision

235) A phone call from youngest daughter, excited about what God is doing in her life

236) Friday...our day off together

237) A good meeting with our church's wonderful children's workers

238) Spending time with a friend
