Sweet Jesus

Day 2, Matthew 1
40 Day Sugar Fast

"Feasting on the sweetness of Jesus......"

This spoke to me in so many ways.  Many times I look at Jesus as Savior, King, Peace, Rescuer, .....  But sweet.  

My favorite sweet treat has always been Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory.  The moment it is brought to the table, I first just look at it - a sight of beauty.  Then I slowly put the first bite in my mouth - cheesecake and whipped topping.  I let it sit in my mouth for a moment and just savor the texture, creaminess, perfect blend of ingredients, hard chocolate chunks in the creaminess and the most wonderful, perfect sweetness.  I just let it melt in my mouth and savor the moment.  Then my shoulders drop, I take a big deep breath, I sigh and I just am in in awe of the perfect sweetness.  I am relaxed and all the worlds problems go away for a moment.  

And to think that Jesus is so much more than this.  
May I always savor the sweetness of Jesus.
