Writing Prompt: What does the word "satisfy" mean to you? Write about it today. My response is below.

Today, the Lord pointed out the word "satisfy" to me in two different scriptures. Coincidence? I don't think so.  So, what is God trying to tell me?

I need to be satisfied in life?
I need to be satisfied in the Lord?
I need to seek Him more?
I need to satisfy the needs of my family?
Yes, to all those things.

OK, how do I do all that? 

1. I need to make time for scripture reading and praying daily.
(I haven't been doing that lately.)

2. I need to back off on blogging some.
(I've been getting ready for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which is good, but I've spent every waking moment doing it, which is not good.)

3. I need to spend more quality time with my family.
(They are bowling right now and I didn't go...sigh.)

OK, I know what my priorities are. I just need to implement!
(Lord, give me the strength to do what I need to do. Help me to feel satisfied in You and to be there more for my family. Amen.)

Whew, I needed that. Thanks for reading my therapy post :0).  Getting off the blog for the rest of the day.


  1. Hi Dawn, I can relate to what you have written. It was always a struggle to get devotion time, family time, all the chores, etc, etc., when working full time. Now retired, I am doing better with devotion time but it's still hard to be still, listen to God and meditate on his word. I started reading My Utmost for His Highest in March. < > I don't know if you read that but it really puts things in different light. You hang in there. May God Bless, Charlie

  2. Thanks, Charlie. We all just need to get priorities straight and keep them there. Hard to do sometimes.


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
