15 Quotes on Being Satisfied With Life

Are you satisfied with your life?

Are you happy?

Are you peaceful?

Remember when you were a little kid? And going to the store and getting that candy bar at the store – now that was satisfaction! And then being a teenager, and your parents gave you the car keys for your night out? That was satisfaction. And maybe later in life you got married, and you thought now this is satisfaction. Then the kids came and again – that was satisfaction. But isn’t it funny, how things change as you go through life? Suddenly what you thought would bring satisfaction didn’t anymore.

So we got the MORE mentality. If I get more money, more fun, more stuff – then I’ll be satisfied. So we do it. And it does not bring the peace that we thought it would. Until we realize that:

Satisfaction is not in what we do or what we have.

I have found that the only way to satisfaction in life is Jesus. There is no other thing that can fill that God place but Him. Not money, not jobs, not family, not friends, not relationships – just Him.

GOD is the SOURCE of my satisfaction.

We all have a place in our heart that longs for His presence and His touch. He is our Creator and He made us that way.

John 14_6

Does Life Have a Name?

© 2014 Diana Rasmussen

Tried chasing money, tried make-believe fame
Had lots of power, just got devoured
Lonely and empty in my fancy position
my name it’s on the door
there has to be more

Does Life have a Name?
I’m so tired of playing this game.
Success feels like failure turned inside out

I’ve worshiped knowledge, with liars and politics
rules of tradition, lots of religion
This world can’t fill me up, my cup’s almost empty
I’m grasping at straws, seeing all of my flaws

Does Life have a Name?
I’m so tired of playing this game.
Success feels like failure turned inside out

lonely in a crowded room

Does Life have a Name?
I’m so tired of playing this game.
Success feels like failure turned inside out
