Senses

Posted: January 24, 2018

Who remembers The Magic School Bus?  Ms. Frizzle teaches that the average human has many more than just 5 senses.  Apparently, we have up to 20 more - including balance, pain, time, temperature, direction...and a sense of humor!  *ba-dum-bum ching!*

Of all those extra senses, I doubt that scientists acknowledge a "God sense," also known as the Holy Spirit.  Here's the thing about senses:  if you never use them, they won't work.  God made each of us and He longs to communicate with us.  But if you never take the time to listen for His voice, you won't know what it sounds like.  If you never look for His goodness, you won't see Him in any situation.  If you never open up your heart to Him in worship, you won't know what it feels like when He touches you.

"Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him." 
Psalm 34:8

Lord, thank You for Your presence in my daily life. I really do want to know Your voice, Your hand, Your touch.  Help me to hone my "God sense" and to use it to glorify You.  Amen.
