The Pantry

My daughter is twenty nine years old; but, when she comes home for a visit, she goes directly to the pantry to see what “goodies” are on the shelves.

Last week she said, “Mom, have you ever noticed how all three of your children go directly to the pantry when we come home?” I laughed and said, “I know, and I love it when you guys do that!”

No matter how long it’s been, all three of my adult children know: Mama’s pantry will forever be stocked with salty, and sweet treats, purchased with each of them in mind.

Why?

Because, I love each of them – deeply.

And…

More than anything in the world, I simply want to bless them.

Friend, the Lord feels the same way about YOU!

You didn’t know?

Come closer and see…

Perhaps, you once knew, but had forgotten?

All you have to do is: Come. Back. HOME.

To the heart of God, your creator.

Come back to the sweet, familiar place of comfort.

Be still for a moment, in front of His pantry/storehouse.

GAZE…

Be AMAZED…by all He has purchased, and prepared…

JUST FOR YOU, His child.

The one He loves SO deeply.

The One He longs to BLESS!

“The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never the bottom. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.” _Deuteronomy 28:12-14
