    Hungry, Hungry Souls
    Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!  For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.  Psalm 107:8-9 Have you ever played the game Hungry, Hungry Hippos? The game involves four plastic hippos on each side of a game board.  Each of the hippos are operated by levers on their backs. By pressing and releasing the lever, the hippo will open and close its mouth while its head moves forward and back.  This

    Satisfied by Playing in the Mud?
    You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. Haggai 1:6 I don't think it's hyperbole to say that everyone of us longs for satisfaction.

Matthew 5:6 When I had an endoscopy a few years ago, I couldn't eat or drink anything until after the procedure was over. I didn't think that was a big deal until a few setbacks caused a delay of a few hours. It's amazing how thirsty and hungry I felt in just a matter of hours.  If you've ever gone a while without food and water, you know what I'm talking about. The desire to eat and drink in those

    Taste and See
    Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Psalm 34:8 "Let me have just a taste." Have you ever said such a phrase?  Or heard anyone else say it? Usually what we mean by "just a taste" is a very small portion . . . just enough to see what something tastes like.  Sort of like when you go to the ice cream shop and you see some flavor you've never tried.  You don't want to get a whole scoop of it, but you would like to try it.  So you ask if you can have
  5. Satisfaction
    22 May, 2017
    Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 I'm more of a fan of the Beatles than of the Rolling Stones, but there are a few Rolling Stones songs that connect with me.  One of those songs has the well-known, notable refrain . . . I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction 'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try I can't get no, I can't get no Putting problems with English grammar aside, these lyrics show us
