God Satisfies Me

Scripture: God Satisfies me with Good Things and my youth is renewed as the eagles. Psalm 103: 5   An eagle is thought to be one of the strongest most fearless of all birds, but It is said when an eagle is about five years old, it begins to lose its feathers and that gives one the appearance of renewed youth. During that process, the bird may look sickly and weak, but when the process is complete, an eagle has the look and feel of renewed strength and power.

But because they are still working, there is obviously some progress being made. One day the project will be complete and everyone will see the outcome. Those construction workers are not quitting simply because it’s taking so long. And they are not quitting because it’s a bigger mess than before they started. When it comes to prayer we love the outcome – we are so enthralled with what …
