“For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.” (Psalms 107: 9)
Does it sometimes feel as if we are always longing for something—health, money, love, achievement, understanding? Does it seem as if our striving never ends? When one ideal is revealed and claimed, another one still seems to gnaw at us, like a hungry stomach in need of sustenance.
That longing, that hunger for goodness, peace, joy, is satisfied by God. Looking to any other source will never achieve lasting contentment. That burning within us to feel better, know more, be more at peace with ourselves and others is met and filled by divine Love. This Love has always been with us, and has always been caring for us, filling us with ideas and inspiration and new awareness. God’s nourishment, accepted without reservation, will always be enough to keep us well, comfortable, and comforted.
We must open our yearning hearts to God’s grace. We must be willing to give up our human expectations of life, and let God show us His grander plan, His ideal ideas made manifest. This satisfaction goes deeper. It is about feeling loved and lovable, and knowing that this is steady and certain and deserved. It is about accepting that we are worthy right now to be happy and well, and so we can be. The answer isn’t out there in the future or back in the past. It is right where you are, tenderly revealing that your life is in God, Love, so it is already harmonious, full, complete, peaceful, and forever satisfied.
