Sweet or Sour?

by sandihester

How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  Psalm 119:103

Psalm 119 may be my all time favorite Psalm, because it talks so much about the Word of God.  It uses such beautiful pictures of delighting in God’s Word over and over all through the VERY long Psalm.  Grady and I are reading Psalm 119 right now.  Grady reads a Psalm every night to us before we go to sleep.  It’s my favorite part of our evening together.  I love hearing him read the Word over us.  I think the Lord delights in it too.

Grady calls Psalm 119 “Bertha” because it’s so long :).  I asked him if we could break up Psalm 119 instead of reading in all in one night – I really like to savor this one.   It resonates with me, because I love His Word so much.  It truly is sweeter than honey to my mouth.  May I ask a personal question?  How does it taste to you?  I remember a time in my life when His Word was dull tasting – almost sour.  I had no desire for it at all.  But the Lord tells us to ask and we shall receive.  He is the Giver of good gifts.  Ask Him for a sweet taste in your mouth for His Word and see if my precious Jesus doesn’t give in abundance.  Increase our hunger Lord Jesus!  May our appetite be for You and You alone!

I painted this several months ago.  It’s my sugar dish.  The scripture on the painting is actually on my sugar bowl.  Grady got me the most amazing dishes ever for a birthday or anniversary gift (I never can remember what gifts I get when – sorry Grady – I know you’re smiling as you read this!  It’s hard to remember when your man spoils you rotten (AND when you have a brain the size of a pea.)  I know… and I’m sorry if you’re jealous, but I truly do have the best husband in the world!!!!).  Ok so back to my dishes… the dishes all have scripture on them – they truly are beautiful!  Each set has a different topic such as family, love, faith, etc. and there are different verses for each topic.  Did I mention how much I love them :)??!!!
