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.

This is something I have been thinking about a lot this week. Working with teenaged girls I see this a lot….nothing satisfies….because they truly haven't found the one thing that truly does. Our Jesus.Wonderful and encouraging words Becky.
All I have to say is WOW! Glad that you linked up to CR today. I'm glad I'm here!Loving and experiencing God with our senses. That's part of why He so intricately created us, so that we can enjoy Him with our whole beings.I *heart* spiritual conversations. Its so refreshing and nourishing.God bless!
I love the conversations we have with friends/mentors regarding God. Sometimes I learn more from those conversations about God then I do through Church. Thank you for sharing today. I agree that our world is one of unsatisfaction or immediate satisfaction. Not true satisfaction. Its something that I long to want what I have in Christ.
I love to be around people who are contagiously passionate. It stirs something in me and makes me want to be better. Lucky you to have such a mentor.
