Taste and See That the LORD is Good

“Taste and see that the LORD is good.”
-Psalm 34:8

Sometimes it’s difficult to see God in our lives.

And then there are days when it’s so easy.

Saturday was one of those days. It was my birthday, and my family and I spent the day at an apple orchard.

It was easy to taste that the Lord is good. We walked through the rows of trees, sampling the sweet and tangy apples in more varieties than I have ever heard of.

It was easy to see that the Lord is good while gazing upon the beauty of creation on a gorgeous September afternoon. It was easy to see His goodness while watching my amazing family enjoy the day.

It was easy to feel the goodness of the Lord when my nephews wrapped their arms around me. It was easy to feel that the Lord is good with the sun shining on my skin.

It was easy to hear that the Lord is good in the sound of my nephews’ sweet laughter, and in the sound of my sisters and me bursting into random song.

I could even smell that the Lord is good while enjoying the delicious scent of apples when walking through the orchard.

Yes, some days it’s difficult to see God in our lives.

But some days it’s so easy.

And those are the days that I love to hold on to.
