Sweet Tea & Manna

 A Blog by Kayla Ferris

Manna2Go Fast Food - Psalm 16:5-6

...Because sometimes we need a quick shot of manna to power through the day!

Psalm 16:5-6 (MSG)– “My choice is you, God, first and only.

And now I find I’m your choice!

You set me up with a house and yard.

And then you made me your heir!

Absolutely, I choose God. But some days, I forget. Some days I’m “too busy.” Some days He isn’t my first choice. But He is the only one that satisfies.

And then to think…He chose me. By name. He said, “Let’s see…I choose…Kayla.” Fill in your name. It sends butterflies in your heart. As though the Holy Spirit is stirring as it remembers the call.

And then He gave me a house with a yard. He is providing for me TODAY! He supplies today with blessings. He marks lines for me to stay within (and those lines are good and beautiful! The grass is not greener on the other side! I must run my lane and live in my house He built just for me. Amen?)

And then He made me an heir. As though He was saying “When I die, you can have my home.” And guess what? He died. And He gave me heaven.

Choose God. He chose you. Love the house He has given you now. And know someday you get to live with Him in His.
