Day 18: Taste and see….

31dayssquareaddressThere are moments in our lives which define us.  Moments where we are called to move.  Do or die.  Put up or shut up.  Moments in which us God calls us to live dangerously. In which He challenges us.

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.”  Psalm 34:8

There are simply times when God challenges us to step out.  To be bold in our faith and to move.  To trust in him and to follow the whispers He gives us even though we have no idea where they will take us.

But.

We like to be safe.  We like our comfort zone.  We like the things that we’ve always done.

And God whereas God loves us, He’s not overly concerned about our comfort zone.  Not really.  Because comfort zone is another word for “I feel good and safe and God is in His little box.”

Yeah, you can see why that’s not His plan for us.  Our dependence on Him is crucial.  We need Him.  Oh we need Him.

And in this broken world, we need to taste of Him and see that He is good.  There is so much around us that is so very, very bad.  But God is always, always good.  And not only is He good, but he’s working good on our behalf.  Simply because we love Him.

That’s how good He is.

Loving us even though we’re a collective group of hot messes.  And thank goodness.  Because tasting of him, and looking upon His goodness is a balm for or my weary soul.
