And yes, it is Catherine of Siena again. What can I say, she is one of my favorite saints.
“There is nothing we can desire or want that we do not find in God.”
He fills all of our needs, wants, and desires. God put those in us and he wants us to seek him to find fulfillment. Expecting anyone else but him to fill us leads to disappointment. St. Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in thee.” The group Plumb had a great song called God Shaped Hole. Again and again pointing out that trusting in God leads to peace and contentment while trying to fill ourselves with the things of the world leads to fear, confusion, and discontent.
As I have been praying, thinking, and writing this series on TRUST I am learning that I have to let go of a few things and trust that God has my back. Indeed he has all of me! I can see myself opening my hands and releasing my issues and closing them so quickly nothing can get out. God has shown me my heart’s desire and he will give it to me if I let go and trust.
My prayer today is for us to let go.
