Five minutes with the word bacon huh? Just this week, Tuesday morning, I was cooking enough eggs for 30 people for a breakfast to honor my granddaughter’s volleyball team headed for state conference. I was up to my elbows in shells, eggs, butter, cheese, half and half. It was hard work and it was a blessing. To be asked to help with this feast for my oldest grandchild’s senior year was wonderful. But I can’t ever remember smelling eggs cooking as a child and saying “that’s the best smell ever”.
But oh the bacon! Who hasn’t rubbed their eyes and leaped from the bed to the wafting goodness of the smell of bacon? Life without bacon would be bland. You don’t have to have 10 slices a day. Bacon is one of our rare treats. So we still get excited about the bacon. So did the girls at the breakfast. They ate the eggs, they had a pancake, even smuggled a doughnut and drank juice, but they savored the bacon!!!
Oh beloved, God wants you to savor Him this morning! He has given you everything you need for life and godliness. You are learning to partake of it all. But the savor of His intimate presence is what wakes you up in the morning and gets you out of bed. He is real! He is loving. He is flavorful – yes He is! Taste and see that the Lord is GOOD!!!! Focus on the good stuff and even the other things that go on in life will be palatable.
God loves you and He’s for you! Eat a piece of bacon occasionally because life is good! But really taste the Lord’s delights every morning and see that He is exceptional. Your destiny is to live a vibrant tasty uplifting life as you live in the Light of His Glory & Grace!
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good; How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who takes refuge in Him.
Psalm 119:103 How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
