To Be Satisfied

Satisfy us in the morning

with your unfailing love

that we may sing for joy

and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14

That verse is written on a scrap of paper which sits right next to my coffee maker.  There are little coffee stains all over the paper.  It’s been there for a while.  Pity I haven’t really mastered the concept yet…

As I look back over this past week, I wonder: Was I satisfied with how God chose to show me His love? 

When I was without the blog but had more time to spend with my family? 

When we had no electricity but got to listen to the crickets? 

When I hadn’t gotten to shave in days but strangely had patience for prickles? 

When I lost my sweet stash of frozen breastmilk but didn’t lose the ability to nurse?  

God is always faithful and took such good care of us.  Today He reminded me that my ability to enjoy daily life (regardless of circumstance) directly depends on my willingness to find satisfaction in Him.

And really, is that a chore?  Am I so lame?  Short-sighted?  Self-centered?

Yes. 

God is always faithful…  And the thing He promises to satisfy me with is His unfailing love.  I fail but He stays good and faithful.  His forgiveness is my lifeline and I love Him for it.
