Today's Prompt: Leave
Remember hearing the phrase "be sure you leave room for dessert" as you are sitting down to a delicious dinner? All the while you are savoring the meat and potatoes, you're anticipating what comes next.
For me, a delightful life must include dessert. While grandma's noodles or aunties' salad may be delectable, it's the dessert that gets raved about. Whether it is a decadent chocolate cake, a bowl of fresh berries topped with sweet whipped cream, or a nutty butter bar with a buddy, a good meal isn't complete without that extra bite of sweetness at the end.
Because there are only two of us, I've had to adjust my baking. A whole cake or pie is way more than we should eat. So, I've been collecting some great dessert recipes for two on Pinterest. You can check them out on my Dessert for Two board.
The same applies to our time with the Lord. We feast on His Word, spend time praying for ourselves and others, but so often we get up from the table without taking the time to listen. His voice speaking to us is that little bite of sweetness that tops off the whole meal.
Next time you're spending time with the Lord, remember to leave room for dessert. Just like a meal isn't complete with dessert, your time with Him isn't complete until you feel the sweetness of His loving arms and hear the whisper of His voice deep in your spirit.
