Tuesday, my mentor and I were talking. And I asked her a random question. I asked if I could peek inside her prayer closet – into her quiet place with the Lord. Just curious.
I love how Jesus manifests Himself on her life.
She is extremely passionate about Christ. Contagiously so. Her life is tangible proof to me that there is so much more to be desired in my walk with God. So much more to learn and know. So much more Love to have for Him.
In passing she said this…..
“I don’t want to just read over Psalm 34:8 – Taste and see that the Lord is good. I really want to taste Him.”
It was a random quote in our hour and a half talk. Not the focus of our time. But it has stuck with me.
How amazing that the Lord allows us to experience Him through our senses. That we can experience Him as with the richest of foods (Ps. 63:5).
For He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. – Psalm 107:9
We live in a very unsatisfied culture. So many people wander through this blink of an eye life, trying to find satisfaction. Looking to career, materialism, relationships, money, etc. to find fulfillment.
But it is in Christ alone that one finds lasting, genuine satisfaction.
Satisfies – to be fulfilled. To enrich. To cloy with over abundance. To flood with goods that exceed demand.
God fulfills us. He enriches our lives. He lavishes us with, not just an abundance of joy, but with an OVER abundance. He doesn’t just meet our need for satisfaction, He exceeds demand.
I long to grow in finding 100% satisfaction in Christ. I hold up my cup to Him today. Asking not to just taste Him but to taste Him. And see that He is good.
Also, this song by Sarah Reeves, Sweet Sweet Sound, has been my random song of the week. It has blessed me so much. Little Ethan loves it, too. 🙂
Enjoy and worship today.
