Sweeter than Honey

There's a disquiet in my soul today. I really can't put my finger on "why." Maybe it's a culmination of many things. Maybe I'm just tired. I don't know. But even as I was contemplating the cause for my discontent, a verse of scripture came to me.

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God. Psalm 43:5

I don't know about you, but I really do not think I would've survived this long without the Word of God. In Psalm 119, we find these words:

"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

There are 176 verses in just that one chapter, and that just happens to be verse 103. There are over 31,000 verses of scripture in the Bible. Yet today, when I need them, these two verses of scripture come to my mind.


Sweeter than honey. God's Word really is that good.

And I really really like honey! There's hardly a day that goes by when I'm not putting honey on something - I like it that much. There's nothing like it. Not sugar, not artificial sweeteners - nothing! But God's Word is even better. And today, just when I needed them, these two verses, of all the verses in the Bible, are soothing to me beyond anything I can describe.
