Who thinks I did not fall behind during Heaven Fest and its’ aftermath?
Um, well, I did. And I bet you are not surprised. But I intend to eat all these words up in short order! But let’s do this (just in case anyone else has fallen behind) : start right on this week’s. That can be one beautiful meal a day. Then if you’re still hungry later, serve yourself up some July 24 or July 31 goodies. The main thing is to get the delicious sumptuousness of the Word into you; to be lavishly and abundantly filled up as if you have just had the best meal e-v-e-r! We’ll get everything we need for life and godliness, yum!
Don’cha just love how I can turn anything into a food-thing??? Well, Beth Moore started it. I once heard her say something to the effect that the Word is to be consumed like food to feed your spirit and how you can and should enjoy it like a menu at your fav restaurant. She said sometimes, you’re on the go and just need an appetizer, other times a light salad, but then you will sit down and consume the 5-course meal. And btw – you do NOT just eat once a day for your physical body. I wonder why we think the spirit part of us just needs “one quiet time” per day? I mean, come on – let’s eat! A bowl of cereal here, a soup and salad lunch, a small cone from the DQ on a summer afternoon…a steak meal there…
