The devotion this morning centered around refreshment. Everyone was given a mint and encouraged to eat it. I did not because the Lord has not allowed me to eat refined sugar since July of last year.
At the end, we were asked how we ate the mint…if we savored it all the way until the end, if we savored it for a while and then crunched it, or if we chewed it right away so we could move onto the next thing. It was then equated if that is how we spend time with the Lord. If we savor it or if we look at it as something to check off our list.
At first, I was crushed as I didn’t even eat one, I gave mine away. I was scared I had missed out on the opportunity all together. But the Lord quickly corrected me. He reminded He did not call me to do as everyone else, even those on my team. He called me to stand out and be obedient to only Him, amen?
