  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

May 9, 2012 - Only God Satisfies

By Kristen Feola

“I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you” (Psalm 63:4,5, NIV).

Food nourishes us and provides energy for our bodies. Just like a car requires gasoline to run, our bodies depend on food to function. Food is our fuel. It sustains us and keeps us going so we can work and play. The danger occurs, however, when food becomes more than fuel, and we form a relationship with it.

God has placed within each of us a void intended to be filled by Him. Only God can satisfy completely. The Bible provides many verses that help us understand what it means to be content in Jesus. Consider Psalm 90:14: “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.”

The deepest longings of your heart can only be met in Jesus. He is the Bread of Life. He satisfies not only in the morning, as Psalm 90:14 says, but in the afternoon and evening as well! He is the only One who can bring lasting joy to your life. Look to the Savior to fill your life. He’s all you need.

Prayer: Dear Lord, many times I turn to other things instead of You when I’m hurting. Thank You for reminding me today that only You can make me whole. You satisfy me!
