Satisfied

“Dad, I want a ball glove and I want a bicycle for Christmas.” Remember asking for those things, or how about, ” I want an ice cream cone” does that ring any bells. I thought so. I said that word want when I was a kid and even a teen.  As a late teen and going on twenty I don’t think I used that word anymore. I never had much money so I had to begin thinking through about what I needed or was it just something I wanted. Changing my way of thinking saved me a lot of money and disappointment, and made straight my path for the future.

Ps. 23:1 says ” the Lord is my Shepard I shall not want. : That says it all. I am satisfied God will meet my every need and if there is anything else He will see to it that I lack no good thing. Oh! I still mess up once in a while, but He helps get my bearings straight again and get me back on course.

I contemplate about what is my greatest need and the answer comes to me simply,  to be like Christ. That one answer means it will cost me everything but it is worth it all.

   Consider all that you have bought and lost, or friends you’ve have or had, or places you have been. Are you still in the wanting stage of life or do you begin to see there is a greater need in your life. Consider the cost, is it worth having things of this world that you have seen fade away with time, or Christ who says ” I will never leave you  nor forsake you and I will be with you always.”
