"Where are you looking for satisfaction? How will you know when you've found it? And when you think you've discovered the secret of satisfaction, will it last for eternity?
"In the deepest recesses of our hearts and minds, there are hungers that cannot be satisfied by the things of this world. St. Augustine once said that we were created with a God-shaped void. I agree. Only God can meet the deepest longings of our hearts. Nothing can satisfy us apart from a personal relationship with Him....
"Who knows what will satisfy your deepest needs better than the One who made you? As your Creator, He can see what your needs are going to be tomorrow and ten years from tomorrow. So He certainly knows what you need today!" -from the author
In this hectic, demanding life, we are all looking for a heart-contentment that fulfills our yearning for love and protection. For a quiet place to rest. For guidance and comfort and deliverance from fear. The secret lies in the gentle words of Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. . . ."
This beloved psalm's beautiful lines feed and comfort our souls. But its greatest gift is that it offers what we all need-the secret to satisfaction in this life, and in the one to come-and promises what we can all experience-an intimate relationship with the loving Shepherd who fulfills the very longings of our souls.
