Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Song of Songs 2:13 The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
John 12:3 Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
Have you ever smelled honeysuckle? Did it make you want to inhale … deeply?
Ummm … Imagine. What does Heaven smells like?
Ummm … my soul hums and inhales DEEPLY!
Let me smell YOUR FRAGRANCE, O GOD. My very soul hums with delight, O My Lord, God Almighty. Heaven and Earth are full of Your Glory.
We can smell You … even here on Earth, My Lord. Thank You, O God, for Your Heavenly Fragrance. For earthly delights that make our souls hum and SING. We delight in You, O Lord!
Have you picked a honeysuckle flower? Did you pull the bottom off of the flower and the stamen out?
O! What did you find?
A luscious dewdrop – glistening in Your light, O Lord! A sweet, sweet drop of dew, O Lord.
O taste and see, the Lord is good …
O honey! Sweet, sweet honey!
Your gift, Lord, to us.
Thank You. A drop of Your sweet honey that we suckle from the lovely, fragrant, sweet vine You offer us. Your gift Lord.
Have we found YOU? Are we looking for you? Have we thought to look in the everyday places?
O honeysuckle, bloom!
Flourish and grow
I FOUND YOU
On the vine
The honeysuckle vine
Your sweet dewdrop DIVINE
Just for me
Thank You God.
In Jesus name. Amen
