My friend has taught her son to eat to the point of satisfaction. Ever since I first heard him say, “May I please be excused? I am satisfied”; I have thought a lot about that.
I am an over-eater. A lot of you know me as a Weight Watcher. There is a good reason I go to my meeting every week. I know my weakness and tendency to gluttony.
There are other areas of my life that tend to lead me to sin. I am not easily satisfied. My house is never clean enough. There is never enough order. My children are never obedient enough. I don’t like my schedule disrupted and become a drill sergeant to my family barking out orders that make them want to hide from me.
Nature is satisfied. Psalm 104 is a beautiful Psalm about creation. In verse 13 it says, ” the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.” Satisfied.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” Satisfied, again.
I want to be satisfied. To recognize that each day I have to serve the Lord Jesus as I serve my family is a gift. Nancy Leigh DeMoss is teaching me so much through Surrender: The Heart God Controls. I am praying I apply these lessons and change my heart to one that has an appetite for righteousness and is satisfied.
