Back to my story…
We finally made it to our little cottage B & B on the bay. Adorable! I was anxiously looking forward to coffee time on the porch, pier sitting, browsing the quaint shops on the main street, eating out of doors at interesting cafes, and watching the orange sun sink into the water on the horizon. My soul was hungry for all of this and I knew indulging in these things would release the stress, feed my desire, and I would be refreshed! And it did…somewhat! The variety of smells, sights, and sounds stimulated my senses and stirred up my creative juices! Poor Brian, also desperately needing a brain break, had to listen to all of my creative ideas.
Please consider spending time with the Father today. Remember that this blog is but a taste of how God speaks to us. You cannot get spiritually full feasting on someone else’s experience. Feed yourself or you’ll starve. Find God in the little moments of life. Feast on His word and delight yourself with His presence. It is most fulfilling!...and I might add, exciting! Remember what happens when hunger sets in. You get grumpy!
The next part of the verse is one we often skip over but in fact, is very important!
“How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! vs.8b” When you taste and see that the Lord is good, you become happy as you take refuge (a condition of being safe, sheltered, from danger or trouble.) in Him. Interesting that happiness comes after tasting! No more grumpy! Ha-ha!
Here is a selfie of me and Brian after we had spent a long day of hunger, tired backs, and grumpiness! Once we were rested, nourished, tasted of the Lord's goodness, and saw the blessings of His faithfulness to us, our countenance changed and we actually sang a new song! I believe the outcome is likewise true when you apply the same principles to your spiritual journey...just don't wait until someone notices how grumpy you've become!
Tasting of His Goodness
and Not Starving myself of the Bread of Life,
