14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
We were created with big wants, big needs, big appetites. Disappointment is usually the consequence here. It is a difficult journey to gain the understanding that the aim of our desire should be Him and Him alone. This is what He wants for us. Until we gain this understanding, we set ourselves up for heartbreak, heartache, disappointment, dissatisfaction, frustration, and unsatisfied desire. What follows all of these states is discomfort, disease, acting out, and foot stomping. We are petulant children in His eyes.
As I age, one thing is becoming very clear: In Him, all of our needs are met. Each and Every One. Age has become a sweet blessing, for the voracious appetite has lessoned considerably, and my thirst is now easily quenched, peacefully and happily by a steady stream of His Word.
