How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103
When I was young, my Dad travelled extensively throughout Florida. At his homecoming, Dad surprised us with peppermints collected in restaurants during his travels. Dad’s return was all the sweeter because he brought mints with him. What a delicious memory.
When I think of Jesus, I borrow the words from the wonderful hymn “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.” In days of uncertainty with all of life’s trials and tribulations, it is worth remembering that we have a Savior who sweetens the pot and makes our life better. Not perfect but better.
I’m grateful for my earthly Father who was sweeter than words can express but I’m tremendously grateful for Jesus Christ who will never leave me and who promises so much more.
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.
