I finished cleaning my life plate and I pushed myself away from the table.
I am already hungry again. I eagerly and anxiously feel the need to fill my life plate once more. More activity. More service. More. More. More.
My loving God says:
I want you to experience My fullness. "I have come that you may have life... and have it to the FULL." (John 10:10)
Unfortunately, my culture and even the church have taught me that a full plate is expected. A full plate satisfies. A full life plate brings joy. A full life plate denotes status and importance.
My loving, patient God says:
Do you feel it? Do you feel the satisfaction, the joy, the peace, the fullness of My presence?
"You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore." (Psalm 16:11)
Lord, free me from the NEED to fill my plate out of any reason other than obedience to you. May I be satisfied in the FULL life that you give.
And when that plate is full of You, of Your life, of Your love, mercy, and grace... then I realize it is meant to be...
Living for ONE,
