How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money I'd do things my way
Hmm, but little they know
Hmm, it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Hmm, once I was wadding in fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed of to get a start in lifes game
But suddenly it happened
Hmm, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.

Hmm, when my life is over and my time has run out
My friends and my love ones
I'll leave there ain't no doubt
But one thing for certain
When it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.

A Satisfied Mind

Money will not satisfy.

Spouse will not satisfy.

The feelings come and the feeling goes. Many highway robbers sell empty promises. Study hard, work hard, pray hard some of these will say. Something is missing no matter what. How can a heart be satisfied when the mind is not? We separate the two. Peoples from the past did not like we do.

Someone said that God has made us for himself and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in him. There is a God shaped vacuum inside each heart only God can fill.

God is love. Jesus came to show us God's love. When you carefully read the Bible to see who Jesus is and why he had to die like he did and why he had to rise from the grave like he did and why you need him like you do and then you receive him like you should, then you will see clearly and be free to soar, straight as an arrow, no more false attraction to keep you down. It will be a shot of love, forever.

THE RECORD

O God, you are my God! I long for you!
My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you,
and witnessed your power and splendor.
Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself,
my lips will praise you.
For this reason I will praise you while I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.

As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul.
My mouth joyfully praises you,
whenever I remember you on my bed,
and think about you during the nighttime hours.
For you are my deliverer;

under your wings I rejoice.
My soul pursues you; your right hand upholds me.
Enemies seek to destroy my life,
but they will descend into the depths of the earth.
Each one will be handed over to the sword;
their corpses will be eaten by jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God;
everyone who takes oaths in his name will boast,

for the mouths of those who speak lies will be shut up.

Psalm 63


Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14


Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. The one who comes to me will never go hungry, and the one who believes in me will never be thirsty."

John 6:35


So Jesus said to them again, “I tell you the solemn truth, I am the door for the sheep. All who came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, and may have it abundantly."

John 10:7-10


Jesus replied, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6
