You are all those things, Jesus
You are everything we need
And you fill us to overflowing
We are satisfied
And we are saved
And we see clearly
and our thirst are satisfied
fills every dark corner
We are sustained
by the fullness of You

You have the fountain of life that quenches our thirst. Your light has opened our eyes and awakened our souls.
– Psalm 36:9 (VOICE)
How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings, To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water. You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.
– Psalm 36:7-9 (MSG)
Anyone who believes in Me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from His heart.’”
– Psalm 7:38 (NLT)
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, Moses didn’t give you bread from heaven. My Father did. And now He offers you the true bread from heaven. The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
“Sir,” they said, “give us that bread every day.”
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty.
– John 6:32-35 (NLT)
“Are you not thirsty?” said the Lion.
“I am dying of thirst,” said Jill.
“Then drink,” said the Lion.
“May I—could I—would you mind going away while I do?” said Jill.
The Lion answered this only by a look and a very low growl …
The delicious rippling noise of the stream was driving her nearly frantic.
“Will you promise not to—do anything to me, if I do come?” said Jill.
“I make no promise,” said the Lion …
“Do you eat girls?” she said.
“I have swallowed up girls and boys, women and men, kings and emperors, cities and realms,” said the Lion. It didn’t say this as if it were boasting, nor as if it were sorry, nor as if it were angry. It just said it.
“I daren’t come and drink,” said Jill.
“Then you will die of thirst,” said the Lion.
“Oh dear!” said Jill, coming another step nearer. “I suppose I must go and look for another stream then.”
“There is no other stream,” said the Lion.

Phillipaisn 4:11 comes to mind for me. “I have learned in whatsever state I am, therewith to be content”. Jesus has our back,and provides for us, whether ties are good or bad. He is so merciful!
Yes, good verse, Pete! In all things, He is our fill. Such a merciful God.
