"The Path Our Soul Longs For"
S.Psalm 119:57,58 (MSG) Because you have satisfied me, God, I promise to do everything you say. I beg you from the bottom of my heart: smile, be gracious to me just as you promised. When I took a long, careful look at your ways, I got my feet back on the trail you blazed. I was up at once, didn't drag my feet, was quick to follow your orders.
O. When we compare a life with God and a life without God, one is not living at all...the other is total life and fulfillment, clear down to the soul and spirit. Once we find the path to true life and deep down satisfaction, God's path, we desire with all our heart to follow it AND STAY THERE.
A. I have tried to find a satisfied life without God. I have tried to go back to the world's path. There is no true happiness there...no fullness of life. Life there is all on the surface...not deep down.
God's path satisfies because it fulfills my spirit and soul's longings, from the inside out.
When I had gotten off on the wrong way, I restarted my search for what I had on God's Way, but looking to the world/flesh for it. I knew I had found it before...but it wasn't in the world...wasn't in man.
What my soul and spirit long for is only in God and on His path!
P. I love Your path, Father! It fills my spirit and soul with all that I long for! Keep me strong and steady there, Father. Keep my steps strong and my eyes on You. My soul and spirit can not live off Your path!
