Theres nothing more satisfying then the Lord Jesus!
We may try this & that to fill us,
but it never meets our needs.
We can surround ourselves with stuff
We can hoard & gather & clutch things
But it’s never enough.
We fill our ships
We burden them down
We’re heavy enough to sink,
We don’t have an inch of space to hold more.
It just doesn’t satisfy,
It’s a bloat to our souls.
None of it leads to true contentment
And It warns: “its not in me”
Nothing has value.
Not even a perfect paradise is enough if Jesus isn’t there.
All our longings-all our strivings-all our grabbing
It’s sinking our ship.
We’re taking on the engulfing sea into our vessel
It’s the things of this world,
It’s been weighed in the balance & found wanting.
We need God’s Holy Spirit to fill our hearts,
Not stuff. Not this & that,
We need our infinite desires to be satisfied with Jesus
We need His voice in our ears
We need to find our all in the bosom of our Maker.
No one! Nothing! Only Him! Only He fully satisfies
