The best thing I heard in worship this morning was this…Let the Word of God seep into your soul as a bag of tea seeps in a cup of hot water.
I love a warm cup of tea at night to calm me before bed. (And yes, I love this mug as well…I am a work in progress). The water starts clear and then slowly absorbs the tea as it travels through the tiny holes. The longer it seeps, the stronger the tea.
I want the Word of God to be like that in my life. The longer I meditate on His Words and allow them to seep into my soul, the stronger my understanding of His love, mercy, and grace will become. I desire for my thrist for His Words to become greater so that nothing else will satisfy that thrist.
