Satisfaction of my soul....

Are you honestly satisfied with where you're at in life?

That's something I gave a lot of thought to this morning.

Many come to Christ out of their search for something missing in their life, realizing they are not satisfied with where they are at.... and yet, after receiving salvation, they go somewhere else to find further satisfaction and can spend years of their life realizing that it does not exist elsewhere.

COMPLETE satisfaction is in Jesus, alone. Lord, forgive my foolish heart for moments when my heart forgets that or chooses not to believe that. Whenever I try and do things my way, thinking that I know what's best and I can make all the right choices and I can work hard to make myself happy, my heart kinda goes, 'Wait, what am I thinking???' and by God's grace alone, I come to my senses and run back to Him. And in His presence is where I want to be.

God offers us SO MUCH every single day, but often times we choose not to enjoy life to the fullest because we're so busy running around looking for other things that will make us happy.

So my heart check this morning: What is standing in the way between you finding satisfaction in Jesus, the Lover of your soul?

I took comfort in this and it made me love my Maker even more:
The Holy Spirit doesn't convict us of sin and our shortcomings to condemn us. Instead, He convicts us of sin so we can become aware of it, seek forgiveness, and be set free!

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galations 5:1

I'm reaching for the One Who brought me out of death and into life.

From my heart...
