How sweet are Your words to my taste, [Sweeter] than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103 NKJV)
I like sweets way too much!
I like baklava which is drenched in honey syrup.
I like ooey-gooey cookies.
I like smooth, creamy, luscious, ice cream.
I really, really like key lime pie.
I like chocolate, anything.
I like peanut butter, everything.
Merge chocolate and peanut butter together and perfection is achieved.
I do not think I ever met a dessert that I did not like.
And, there is nothing like the taste of a moist, light and fluffy birthday cake with its buttery, vanilla layers, topped with old-fashioned whipped Crisco frosting piled to the sky. My mouth is watering. Breaking News: God’s word is sweeter! When you think you need a sugar fix, run to His word.
My dear friend, Kristi Stephens, texted me Psalm 119:103 and the following:
“Through His word God is giving me something so much better than the sweetness of honey! Why should I want to settle for something less, man- made sugar? God is giving me something sweeter.”
If you are like me and trying to leave sugar in the rear view mirror…
I enCOURAGE you to reach for His word the next time those sweet confections start calling your name. I promise that the sweet word of the Lord will satisfy your cravings. More to be desired [are they, His final word] than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (Psalm 19:10 NKJV)
