Not satisfied!


Not satisfied!

Do you ever feel not satisfied?

Why is it that church is not satisfying to me?

Why is it that having family worship is not satisfying?

Why is it that life feels so dull?

It feels like there’s nothing that will satisfy me!

Why is it that going for a walk is not satisfying for me?

Why do I feel like this?

Is there any thing that will satisfy me?

I feel like a two year old lost in the store!!

Why do I feel like this, I ask my self over and over?

I mean, I have always been a good Christian, I think!

But something is wrong!!

Have you ever felt like that, not satisfied?

I have every thing I need, plus some!

But that’s not satisfying me!

I go to church every Sabbath, I don’t watch movies, I don’t play video games, I don’t eat eggs, I don’t sleep in church, I don’t go to taco bell on Sabbath, it seems like I’m a good person!!

So what is it?

Maybe it’s my brothers or my sister!

But no, it’s not them!

It’s me!!

But I thought that I was a good person?!

So why would it be me?

What did Jesus mean when he said, go ye in to all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature?

Well, maybe that means that I can go for a month or two to the mission field?

That would be too hard to be a full time missionary!

I need to get a new car, I need to get a new camera, I need to get a new laptop, and I need to get a good paying job, I need to buy a house, I need and I need!

I’m sure that God would not expect me to not buy a new car, I’m sure that he would not expect me to give up all, just to be a missionary!!

But what did he mean when he said, go ye into all the world and preach the gospel?

I guess that means that I need to give up all and follow him!!

He gave all for me!

This world is not my home, I’m just passing through, my treasures are laid up some where beyond the blue!!

Oh I see now, my treasures are not in this world, they’re in heaven!

So then why do I feel not satisfied?

I need to give all of my life’s goals and desires to God!

I need to put my hand in His hand and say, here I am Lord, send me!

I need to forsake all, and pick up my cross, and follow him with all my soul!!

 When I think about it, it seems selfish for me to want a new car, or a new iPhone, when there are people that don’t even have a pair of shoes!!

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid!
Matthew 5-14

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Psalm 139-23-24

Lets follow God with all our hearts; there is no time to lose!!

  1. Arron: Very profound. The first Apostles went forth with the cloths on their back, and trusted Jesus totally, and it worked! They turned the world upside down!

  3. Absolutely true! When we serve self, we can never be satisfied, it's only in serving others that we can find true satisfaction!
