TASTE & see

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good… Psalm 34:8

There is so much of God
to know
Experience
See
Hear
Taste
Touch
smell and feel
that he has invented a space and place called…eternity
so that we can begin to fathom
who this one we call FATHER is

He is a perpetual feast
a cornucopia of adventure
and mystery
beauty so rare and captivating
that in a lifetime of gazing
we will not be able to fully comprehend it

This wild
bigger than life GOD
asks us to come
taste
participate
grab hold of
and enjoy the very essence of himself -
It is not a polite sampling he invites us to
no dainty drawing room portions
but the reckless
throw-caution-to-the-wind
do not hold back
dig right in partaking
that a 2-year-old indulges in when presented with chocolate pudding
or honey
or watermelon.
The experience is smeared all over his face
and caught in his hair
his eyes shine with delight
and nothing else exists right then but the sweet stickiness of joy in his mouth.

Throw away the fork and knife of care and worry
and calculated rations.
This feast has no end
the table is never empty
and the invitation is always open.

So…
is there a gnawing hunger in the pit of your belly
for something
not tinged with disappointment and bitterness?
Does your throat ache for a cool, refreshing wetness
that carries life and rejuvenation in its very molecules?

Taste and see that the Lord is good…
What are you waiting for?

(the above is a little something I wrote awhile back but just found again and enjoyed!)
