As I slowly ate a bite of my high quality Chinese fast food, I realized it was the first time in awhile that I had “tasted” my food. I had been so busy going and consuming, that my whole meal was going down my throat in one bite. I haven’t been pausing long enough lately to breathe and taste the flavor on my tongue and lips. This often simultaneously reflects a deeper problem. Somewhere along the way, I stop tasting the flavor of life & just start consuming. It's a crazy place to be.
We naturally want to taste and enjoy the flavor of food/life. But we have to combat our natural tendency to just consume. At that moment of static consumption, it's easy to start losing the flavorful ‘taste’ of life. I sometimes start consuming and miss the joy. Lord, help me to feel and sense as I focus and drive. Help me to always protect a tasteful "life" in the midst of it all.
Because your love is better than life... I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods
