“Contentment is not found in having everything we think we want, but in choosing to be satisfied with what God has already provided.”

-Nancy DeMoss

 

Not sure where I stumbled on this quote, but I’m glad I jotted it down. 🙂  And while it is good to be satisfied with what God has provided, I desire to be satisfied with God himself.  I’m definitely not there yet.  John Piper has definitely said a few things about treasuring Christ and being satisfied in Him.  Most notably, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”

 

The words of Psalm 90:14 inspired the song “Satisfy” by Tenth Avenue North:

“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
   that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”

 

And another good song- “Only You Can Satisfy”

 

The truth of God’s word through these songs is refreshing and calming.  I think I’ll be playing these songs on repeat indefinitely… 🙂
