Have You Been Fed?

Morning Saints!
It's a beautiful cold morning in Denver! Have you been fed, yet? You know, spiritually fed? Well, you have to eat your daily dose of the Word and have your personal meditation and prayer, in order to stay steeped in His Ways. Yes, you must fill your cup with the Word, to move onto the path that He has placed before you.  Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, He is there, waiting for you to come to Him so that He may fill your cup. Remember, it is a thorny path, but what makes His Way so wonderful is the Balm that He lovingly places on our bumps, bruises and cuts. It's a  balm like no other--the world cannot give it to you, only Him. Some may think that they definitely do not want to take a path that is so wrought with pain and possible causalities, but His Way is the way to life---that sweet everlasting life that is written upon our hearts. We must seek Him and He will hold us, carry us and be the Balm in Gilead. Why is our Lord often referred to as Balm? Read this interesting tidbit about Gilead's balm:

The balm of Gilead is one of them. The region of Gilead was noted for its balm, a secretion of the balsam tree. The territory where the balm came from, an area North of the Salt Sea in theland of Israel, was originally given by God to Manasseh as an inheritance when the children of Israel entered the promised land. The balm was used in various healing mixtures, and was sold to many countries, especially Egypt:
"And they sat down to eat a meal.  Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, BALM, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt." (Genesis 37:25, NKJV and emphasis throughout)
"Is there no BALM in GILEAD, is there no physician there?  Why then is there no recovery for the health of the daughter of my people?" (Jeremiah 8:22)
"Go up to Gilead and take BALM, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt;  In vain you will use many medicines;  You shall not be cured." (Jeremiah 46:11)

 So, saints, I bid you blessings for the day, as you go about helping and healing hearts. Walk in His Light! Blessings!
