Do I feel about God's Word like I feel about...chocolate?
I mean, I always want chocolate. In the daytime...sometimes in the night time. I think about how it tastes and smells. I savor it!!
Do I taste and see that the LORD is good? Really good...all.the.time...even when God doesn't tell me everything I want to know about the painful events of life. After all, He has already told me all I need to know. It's in His Word.
Is He my refuge? A refuge is a source of help, relief, or comfort in times of trouble. Perhaps, I'd rather eat a bar of chocolate than go to Him for these things...Instead of dealing with the yuck!
Just like chocolate is hard to put away...or just eat a few blocks of the bar...so should be my feelings about reading my Bible each day. Not just one verse, or one passage. Not just checking it off a list or thinking that's good enough. Desiring it...not being able to "forget it's on the cupboard." I read how much non-consequential fiction during summer reading...and how many books (even short books) of the Bible do I read? Er, ouch.
Hope my pondering hit you in either a sweet, milk chocolaty reminder way or a bitter, dark convicting way! I think for me...it's a bit of both. I'm going to grab my Bible...and a square of chocolate!
