Am I Satisfied?

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.

  1. I’ve been enjoying your blog, Lesa. You are very bold to expose yourself so openly. I appreciate your desire to encourage others by doing so. I wanted to mention that the ladies at my church did a study on the book Surrender and I thought it was a very well written book. I would recommend it to all.
