Desires

[He] satisfies your desires with good things”

Psalm 103:5

According to the preacher in Ecclesiastes, God has placed eternity in the hearts of man (Ecc. 3:11). We are prone to seek and desire more of what life has to offer, but we will never be satisfied or filled up by people or things, which is why we are left wanting more. Only he can fill us.

Lord, let your holy presence fill our lives today. As a sacrifice we give to you all we’ve tried to use to become full: money, control, food, alcohol, people, power, status, image, pleasure, and all additional we are unaware of. Burn away everything that is not you as it will only leave us broken and wanting more. Fill us full today, and teach us to desire only that which can satisfy.

An outgoing Enneagram 7 who loves to travel, journal, blog, laugh until I cry, take risks, love hard, and live simple. Originally from a small town in Minnesota, I graduated from the University of Minnesota's School of Professional Journalism -- Go Gophers! My husband and I got married and soon after moved to Reno, NV and have enjoyed every moment being out here. In the last 5 years, between getting married, moving halfway across the United States, getting licensed to do foster care, buying a house, and navigating everything in between, I have wanted a forum to tell our story, share Truth, and encourage others with tough lessons we have learned along the way. Thank you for sticking around to read a post or two. If you are encouraged, please share the post, leave feedback, and send me a message! God bless and thanks for being here.
