Today, I am sharing it again at...
I have always loved these little candy hearts and the messages they convey...
...usually a romantic message of some sort, right?
I got to looking at what some of them said and it got me thinking...
...what about applying some of them to our love relationship with God?
“This is what the Lord says—
Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
The God of Israel Himself gives strength and power to the people. Blessed be to God!
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
Blessings from God in a box of candy!
Happy Valentine's Day!
