There is a settling in me that I know is the Holy Spirit washing over me with peace. There is the release of my sadness, burdens and disappointments to the One who loves me more than I can comprehend. And there is knowing that He will take every sorrow and care for it with tenderness.
I think that I am learning more to live in the deep satisfaction of salvation. I snuggle up with Donny the Dog and find satisfaction in knowing that even this pooch is a gift for my pleasure. I do not struggle against my own inadequacies with panic because I am satisfied that God is great enough to fill in when I fall short. When people disappoint me, I am satisfied in Christ because his love is enough to compensate for my frustration.
And perhaps the greatest satisfaction is knowing that my ways are guided by Jesus. Left to myself I stumble through life rather clumsily. But God in me nudges me in better directions. So I am satisfied with my days. Best of all, when I sin, the Lord is satisfied with the blood of Christ as payment.
There is nothing left out of my life as I give it all to the Lord for him to sort and return to me only the best. When he takes away something I thought I wanted, I am satisfied that his wisdom is perfect.
I am not rich, beautiful or wise. I am not talented, strong or brave. But I am right before God through the sacrifice of Jesus which I have accepted. And I am satisfied.
Pslam 145:16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
