I am the way, the truth, and the life.
I was driving around today and I didn’t have much time to eat. I was keeping extremely busy and about 2:00 p.m., I was starting to get a little hungry. I walked into an office building for a package pick-up and there was a bowl of candy on the desk. Right on top were a bunch of carmel creams, those carmels with the white centers. I used to love them as a kid, but I haven’t had one in ages.
I reached over and plucked one off the top of the pile, it was just the little pick me up I needed. As I popped that piece of candy in my mouth, I was inundated with childhood memories. Do you get those sensations when you eat or smell things from your past? I can still walk into a room with a coffee pot brewing, and it will put me in my Grandma’s kitchen, most every time.
As I finished the last bite, I murmurred to myself, ummmm that was good.
A couple of weeks ago, a couple of my friends and I met for some Bible Study and prayer time. We were looking at the book of Romans, then we spent some time in prayer. When I lifted my head, the first words out of my mouth that day were, “Ummmm … that was good.”
One of my friends laughed, and said it was like I had just finished a meal and truthfully, I had.
Reading God’s Word, spending time with Him in prayer, spending time with each other in fellowship; that is what feeds our faith. What gives us the energy to keep moving forward.
That carmel cream gave me a moment of instant gratification, but God’s Word is what nourishes my spirit for eternity!
Father, thank You for Your Word. It never fails to astound me how even just one scripture can energize my spirit! Your Word is the way, the truth and the life! And Lord Jesus, thank You for the little things in life that make our days special, even something as simple as a little carmel cream!
I Love You Jesus.
In Your Name I Pray,
God Bless You!
