Soul-filling Satisfaction

"For He [the Lord] satisfies the thirsty soul,
and fills the hungry with good things."
Psalm 107:9 (ESV)

     What a precious promise from the Lord! This promise fills me with hope and anticipation. I've felt broken and empty since we lost the baby a little over a month ago. While my arms long for the child I'll never hold, my soul thirsts and hungers for something that nothing but Jesus can fill. It's so easy to try to fill that longing in my soul with food or pity parties or friendships. Even if I'm able to successfully carry and birth another baby, it won't fill the longing in my soul. Only Jesus can do that.

      What I need is more Jesus. I pray that He gives me more of Himself. That He makes me more like Himself. That He fills me with Himself. These are prayers He is answering. My desire for time with Him through His Word and prayer are growing. I'm consistently getting up early even on the weekend so I can have uninterrupted time with Him before my boys get up. Even if I'm up late the night before, He is faithful to give me sweet sleep and to multiply my rest. He is faithful to fill us with Himself when we ask.
