God Makes Sense


You are walking along a beautiful path,

taking in the scenery

with all your senses.

You HEAR the birds chirping.

You SMELL the flowers.

You can TASTE the fresh air as you breath it in.

You SEE the sun shining in the blue sky.

You TOUCH the hand of the one who is walking with you.

Everything is just PERFECT.

Oh what a BEAUTIFUL day it is going to be.

And then you trip over a rock that you didn’t

HEAR, SMELL, TASTE, TOUCH, or SEE.

BOOM!

You smash your knees on the ground.

You stand up with bruised knees

and now a bruised spirit.

Oh what a NON~BEAUTIFUL day it is going to be.

Have you been there?

One minute everything is going your way

and then in a second everything is not going your way

because of one thing that happened

that ruffles all your SENSES.

But where is GOD.

Has HE changed?

Oh this happens to me all the time,

as I can be singing the praises of my GOD

and then in the next moment not singing

the praises of my GOD

because I have lost my SENSES.

For it is in those times when I forget that I have

HIS PEACE

HIS JOY

HIS LOVE

&

HIS HOPE

ALL the time,

whether I am skipping down a flower lined path

or trip over a rock

because

GOD gave us all our

SENSES

to

EXPERIENCE HIM!

HE gave us

EYES to SEE

EARS to HEAR

A Nose to SMELL

Hands to TOUCH

A tongue to TASTE

And a HEART to RECEIVE

all HIS SENSES~

"Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!

Blessed is the man who takes refuge in HIM!" (Psalm 34:8)

To TASTE~

to find out,

to determine,

to seek out.

To SEE~

"to experience something,

conceived of as being present

during the experience so as to view it" (Bible Sense Lexicon)

Read that again~

"to experience something,

conceived of as being present

during the experience so as to view it" .

Oh to SEE GOD in ALL things.

Oh to SEE HIS GOODNESS in ALL things,

because to SEE GOD is to

EXPERIENCE GOD

and because

GOD IS GOOD ,

then to

SEE GOD

is to

experience

HIS GOOD.

Therefore,

when LIFE

doesn’t make

SENSE

go to the ONE who gave you

ALL your SENSES

to

TASTE AND SEE that the HE IS GOOD

by

TRUSTING GOD

by

LOVING GOD

by

SEEKING GOD,

which begins with

SEEING GOD

by

FIXING your eyes on

JESUS

who uses ALL of HIS SENSES

to

HEAR YOU

to

SEE YOU

to

TOUCH YOU~

"Because of CHRIST

we (you) give off a sweet scent rising to GOD,

which is recognized by those on the way of salvation~

an aroma redolent with life"

(2 Corinthians 2:15).

Have a

BEAUTIFUL day~

just

"TASTE AND SEE"

(listen to the song below)
