Featured Post from last week!
"Allowing God to Satisfy"

This was posted by L over at All Glorious Within.  Thanks L for joining the link-up and for your super encouraging words!  Feel free to grab my button from the side-bar that reads, "I Was Featured On From My  Mountain View," to post to your blog or this week's Moms Against Manic  Monday post!  :)
Here is an excerpt from what L shared: 
We are totally made with this desire for companionship.  A desire to be known by another, romantically and intimately.  I struggled in high school with feeling lonely and hopeless.  I was single but it certainly wasn't by choice back then.  I had accepted Christ as my Savior at a young age, and even rededicated my life back to Him at thirteen.  I was still growing in my relationship with the Lord, but had yet to grasp an important concept--

The problem was I was looking for identity and fulfillment in all the wrong places.

My soul felt lonely and I had thought that a relationship with a guy my own age would fill that hole.  I thought that a special relationship was what I needed to complete that loneliness and emptiness deep within me.  Than I wouldn't feel those negative feelings anymore, I would fit in with all the other girls my age.

Truth is, I did need a relationship, just not the kind I thought.
I needed my completeness to come from the Only One who would ever be able to give it to me.

L continues later...
Only He loves perfectly.
Only He never fails me.
Only He is with me always.

...I came to realize that I am only complete when I seek Jesus to fill me and satisfy.
This truth is regardless of a significant other.

I see now as a married woman that this was an incredibly valuable lesson.  Loving my husband is only possible because of Christ's love for me.  As a precious as my God-given marriage relationship is, I am never satisfied completely except through Jesus.
This was wonderful.  So hop on over to be encouraged and find enjoyment in the entire read for  yourself!  :) Allow me to add:
Not only your significant other, but also your children, your home, your schedule and plans, etc, will never satisfy us the way Jesus can.  Because, like L says near the end, "They aren't supposed to."

Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!
