I expected my husband to fulfill me in every way. So anytime we had a disagreement I was left feeling empty and alone.
I expected my ministries to fulfill me. If an activity did not turn out the way I planned or things were not going just so, I was left feeling empty and alone.
Do you see a pattern there? When things did not go right, I was left feeling empty and alone every single time. The truth is, in our marriages we will have disagreements from time to time. Even the best marriages do. We will not agree on every single little detail of life with our spouse. Our children will act up occasionally. Things will not always go as we hoped. And if we are seeking fulfillment in these things, we will be left feeling empty and alone every time.
"Find, rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him." Psalm 62:5
We need to seek fulfillment in Christ alone. He is the one and only who can completely and 100% fulfill us every single time. Our husbands/wives, children, friends, careers, ministries, hobbies, even life, will let us down. God will never let us down.
Check out Mother's on a Mission. I started this post a few days ago but had not yet finished it. On Monday I went to M.O.M and my fellow bloggy friend, Heidi, posted the same thing. I love when that happens! God must really be doing something. Please take the time to check out her post.
Let's seek fulfillment in the only true source...Christ.
