Too Easily Pleased

Following God is not a moral,

Goody-goody exercise,

A regimen of self-serving compliance,

Seeking the right combination of good deeds,

Abstinence and perfectly phrased prayers

In order to ‘secure’ God’s blessing.

No.

It is the journey of a lifetime.

It is finding what our hearts are continually longing for.

It is stepping into satisfaction,

Walking into peace.

Tasting and seeing

Knowing Him for yourself-

Utterly Holy

Dangerously Merciful.

God tells us to come to Him

Not out of ego

But for our own greatest good.

We are too easily pleased

With money, sex, power and

The pursuit of happiness.

He offers us Himself

Knowing that there is nothing better

We could ever find,

He is literally the sweetest thing we will ever taste,

The most fulfilling Thing we will ever encounter

The greatest Beauty to behold

The song we’ve been longing to hear

All our lives.

I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

Psalm 81:10
