When Am I Ever Satisfied?

The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek Him: your heart shall live for ever. Psalm 22:26

When am I ever satisfied? That's a really good question. Well, in the past, I would fill my plate up embarrassingly high at a buffet at least four times and would fill my stomach until I was almost nauseous. Was I satisfied? No, if the truth be told. I just felt sick to my stomach and felt miserable about my self. During those times, loathing set in and took hold and I was more apt to turn to food instead of to Christ who heals me from myself and my vices.

In the past, I thought that if I had certain possessions I would be satisfied, but was I? No, I was surprised to realize how empty I still felt inside. The thing about possessions is the root of the word. If you turn to possessions instead of to your Savior, they can start to possess you!

I thought I would feel better about myself if I got a certain amount of education. Was I then satisfied? No, I always felt that maybe a little bit more schooling would fill that gap in my self-esteem, but it never did. It was only when I turned my food, my stress, my possessions and life over into Christ's very capable hands, I had a feeling of self-worth. It was only then that He healed me from my many vices and continues to do so in spite of all the times I backslide. He is always forgiving and welcomes me with open arms. The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek Him: your heart shall live for ever. Psalm 22:26
