Many years ago when I first became a Christian, a very dear friend told me that she was thankful she could go to the bathroom. This week I want to share my thanks for my five senses…and several other things.
Taste: Psm. 34:8 – “O taste and see that the LORD is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” God has provided a bounty of food for us to taste.
Sight: 2 Cor. 5:7 – “for we walk by faith, not by sight–“
and Matt. 5:8 – “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” and by the blood of Jesus, my Lord and Savior, I am made pure in heart! Although I wear glasses, I so thankful for my eyes.
Smell: Gen. 27:27 – in reference to Jacob stealing Esau’s blessing, Isaac says – “…is like the smell of a field which the LORD has blessed;” With Spring approaching, we’ll soon be able to smell God’s creations
Hear: Matt. 10:27 – “What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.” Whispered in your ear…I can hear God’s whisper!!! And I can hear our granddaughter when she’s unhappy.
John 8:47 – “He who is of God hears the words of God…”
Feel/Touch: Mark 10:13 – “And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them;”
1 John 5:18 (Amplified) – “We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him].” WOW! To hold my husband tight and feel his arms around me is such a huge blessing!
I’m also thankful for BibleGateway for offering a Bible reference toolbar I could install on my browser. Although I have several Bibles on my desk, it’s so easy just to go up to the toolbar and type in a word or scripture reference, and … there it is!
Again, I’m thankful to Christine for my new blog look.
Have a blessed day!
