Longing For More------

DA 187  "He who seeks to quench his thirst at the fountains of this world will drink only to thirst again.  Everywhere men are unsatisfied.  They long for something to supply the need of the soul.  Only One can meet that want.  The need of the world, "The Desire of all nations," is Christ.  The divine grace which He alone can impart, is as living water, purifying, refreshing, and invigorating the soul.
Jesus did not convey the idea that merely one draft of the water of life would suffice the receiver.  He who tastes of the love of Christ will continually long for more; but he seeks for nothing else.  The riches, honors, and pleasures of the world do not attract him.  The constant cry of his heart is, More of Thee.  And He who reveals to the soul its necessity is  waiting to satisfy its hunger and thirst.  Every human resource and dependence will fail.  The cisterns will be emptied, the pools become dry; but our Redeemer is an inexhaustible fountain.  We may drink, and drink again and ever find a fresh supply. He in whom Christ dwells has within himself the fountain of blessing--"a well of water springing up into everlasting life."  From this source he may draw strength and grace sufficient for all his needs."

Are you thirsty for something better in this life?  Try Jesus, He is the answer that I have found that keeps me going from minute to minute, hour to hour and day to day.  I have found that listening to men's counsel does not fill my extreme need. God is the answer.  Counselors can help IF they are Christian counselors, but God is the Divine Counselor and it is freely given from His Word.  Ask God for guidance and He will lead you to just what you need for the day, it really does work for me and I am sure if you are sincere it will work for you.  Try it, it just might be the answer you are looking for.  Grandma Joan
