{ Wednesday's Word - Taste }

taste:

  1. *to perceive or recognize as if by the sense of taste     
  2.      *to become acquainted with by experience

When I hear the word "taste" I automatically think of what a certain food tastes like......
for instance, chocolate!

But, if you'll notice the definitions I chose have nothing to do with actually taking a bite of food and savoring the "taste".  

I've had the above verse of scripture on my mind so much lately and I actually thought it was because of my struggle with weight and food issues.  That is something I struggle with on a daily basis, but I think God planted that verse in my head for a different reason.  When I looked up and read Psalm 34 in it's entirety, (you can read it here)  then I understood more of what God was trying to ever so sweetly speak to my heart.  Just like my physical hunger (which isn't true hunger, but a craving) for that certain food.....

again, chocolate.....


I should have an even greater craving for His word.  I need to remember what He's done for me in the past and realize that He's still the same God and will continue to care for me in the present and future. 


The verse goes along perfectly with my word for 2017, MORE.


It's also a reminder of the HOPE we have in Him alone!

  7. Reminds me of an old Lanny Wolfe or Gaither song.....

    I'm not trying to find just some new frame of mind
    That will change my old point of view
    For I've been through it all deep inside nothing's changed, I'm not new
    I'm not seeking a gift or emotional lift but one thing I'm longing to do
    Is to lift up my cup and let you fill it up with just you.

    More of you -- more of you
    I've had all but what I need - just more of you
    Of things I've had my fill and yet I hunger still
    Empty and bare, Lord hear my prayer for more of you.

    I have searched all around in the husks that abound
    But I find no nourisment there
    Now my strength's almost gone and I feel the pull of despair
    Yet my thrst drives me on and I stumble along
    Over ground so barren and dry
    For the spring's just ahead, Living Water, Lord, fill me I cry.
