I Want Candy...

This week it’s seriously going to be just fun. This week share your favourite candies. I know from being on the HSBA Post team that Sprittibee and Dawn love gummy-bears, and maybe Bunny too. Have fun with this… and you’re welcome to post a photo of YOU eating your favourite candy. Haha!

God’s Word is also like sweetness to our souls. His sweet love, forgiveness, comfort, peace, and more is what makes our lives seem a little more bearable when things get rough. Whenever you eat your sweet piece of goodness remember that God loves you and will always be there when life seems sour.

Share a scripture for this week as well. One that lifts you up when you’re feeling discouraged.

This is not going to be a very long post for me. I really only have one favourite candy- chocolate. Pretty much anything chocolate. I'm very partial to Lindt Chocolate Truffles after my beloved brought them home one year for Christmas- from Costco at that! There was a whole bag, what's a girl to do? So, there's my favourite candy.

As for Scripture, one that stands out as speaking frequently to my heart in times of trial is Jeremiah 29:11 per God's Word Translation:

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.

Sometimes I need to realize that HIS plans may not be my own. However He knows me, and realizes my needs and how to teach me. I have strong faith in this. I also have faith that our's is a God of mercy and grace, of love and peace. When I think upon this Scripture I know that He has my best interests at heart and I need to sit back, be excited for what I will learn, and the journey He will take me on.

Need more candy suggestions? Or, sweetness through God's Word? Go to HSBA! I'm off to call my beloved so I can satisfy my candy craving.

I had to skip this memoir because I don't have much to say about candy! Cookies, cake, chips--yes--but I'm not a big candy person!
