Cooking is therapeutic for me especially after a busy day or week. I pull out the onions, tomatoes, herbs, the main course, and all the spices and seasonings I need and begin to put the meal together. I let my taste buds go wild as I put a dash of this in and a dash of that in. When it’s all done and on the plate, I feel like an artist!
Spiritual food is even more important. Physical food feeds the body, spiritual food feeds the soul. We can get spiritual food in many ways, first and foremost from the Bible. God’s word is what our souls need in order to live in this crazy, mixed-up, upside down fallen world.
If our heart is broken or spirit crushed, God’s word planted inside us is what keeps us going. Many a time, it was a scripture I repeated over and over again and claimed for myself that I won the victory.
Close kindred-spirited brothers and sisters in The Lord feeds the soul too. Being around friends helps us feel we’re not going it all alone in the world. Other people may even share our feelings without us even knowing it until we talk to them. It’s refreshing cause we can think, “Wow, I’m not the only one feeling this way…” God knows we need each other that we need to stand together, cry and rejoice together.
In my little imagination, I wonder what it was like to eat with Jesus. What did He and the disciples talk about that isn’t written in the Bible? Did they ask Jesus how He cured so many people that day? Perhaps how John tried to reel in a fish and it got away? Did Peter share how he felt when he walked on the water for a little while? What would it be like to eat a meal and ask Jesus anything you want to know?
I think that’s why I like movie, “The Perfect Stranger“ I really like how the writers portrayed Jesus NOT as some whimpy God, but very intelligent, articulate and the end was incredible! I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t seen this movie yet.
You can watch here on my blog below and if it doesn’t play, you can watch it on YouTube here.
If you’re reading this post at another time and this movie is no longer on YouTube, you can also find it on Amazon.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. – Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
