When we finally got linked up, Ella was already wearing a layer of rice cereal around her mouth and she was going to town! It was hilarious to watch as her mom filled the spoon with cereal and Ella lunged toward it with her mouth open, eager for the next bite. Then there was some substantial lip-smacking as the good stuff went down.
With tears of laughter, we watched this scene play out over and over again. She was filling up on the good stuff! Then suddenly, Ella took one more bite and did a funny little shivery-gag thing and was done. She had reached her limit.
The next day, I was thinking about how excited Ella was when she was eating that cereal. It was good and she ate until she was filled. And it reminded me how God calls us to feed on His Word. The Bible is God's food for our souls. I long to hunger after the "good stuff" that fills and nourishes me spiritually. And the neat thing is, no matter how much I "eat" I will never be overfilled! There is always room for more of God's Word in my life.
"Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled." Matt. 5:6
