One Sunday at church, we were singing the familiar song, Taste and See. I've never been a huge fan of that song, and thought to myself that there were better songs to sing and play during Communion.
Well later that day, God surprisingly showed me the goodness and meaning of that song.
I was reading about imaginative prayer, savoring consolations, and using all of the senses to experience God more fully during contemplation. Tasting the sweetness of God. Visualizing His care and goodness, and the mysteries of Jesus. Inhaling the fragrance of His loveliness. Touching Him, allowing myself to feel the embrace of His hand. Hearing His words of love and affirmation.
All of this was part of deepening prayer and more fully experiencing God in my life. Of encountering the Bridegroom and falling more deeply in love with Him.
I saw that tasting and seeing the goodness of God was what I needed to learn that day. Maybe that's why I was resistant to that song. Because it was calling me to something different in my prayer life. I needed to learn to deepen my sensory experience of God and my imagination of Christ's mysteries, to more fully enter into a love relationship with God.
This is how God was calling me to experience Him.
What is God calling you to taste and see?
