True satisfaction doesn’t come from having things. Things are like the fleeting taste of sweet, your tongue feels it while it’s there, but once it gets into your belly, it can cause more harm than good.
True satisfaction is the quest of every human being, and where we seek for is a matter of where we are in our journeys. Some seek it in the laps of multiple sex partners, some seek it in the accumulation of big bank accounts, others seek it in the acquisition of degrees or chieftaincy titles, some seek it in the purchase of toys and trinkets. All mortals are looking for satisfaction. There is however nothing more depressing than spending 30 years climbing what you thought was the ladder of success only to get to the top and realize that the ladder was leaning on the wrong wall.
It’s best to ask the question – “What brings true satisfaction?” before you go too far in the wrong direction. It’s a quest you need to settle early, as early as you become aware, and as early as today if today is your day.
True satisfaction is not found in a new house, a new car, a new degree, or some fleeting achievement. These are all exciting things to fill the space with when we are not truly satisfied. Every of such quests will fill us with momentary joy, only to throw us deeper into a bigger need for satisfaction.
True satisfaction is only found in the completion of the puzzle of life when we find the missing piece that completes us. True satisfaction is found in pleasing God, the original object of our design.
How are you pleasing God today? Is He in your thoughts? Is His instruction your priority? Are you honoring Him with all you own? Are you asking for His guidance every step of the way and refusing to think you know it all? God is pleased when our dependence on Him is absolute, and when we involve Him in the details of our lives.
I just said I should remind someone today. Hope you got the reminder?
