I've never tried it. Some people have told me it's great. Others have told me it's terrible. In C.S. Lewis' masterpiece The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, turkish delight was offered to one of the children in order to distract them from what they truly needed to be focused on. It was his downfall. When we delight in things that aren't meant for us to delight in, we get in trouble spiritually, socially, and materialistically.
Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires."
Temptations are going to come. Everyone gets the "Turkish delight" thrown in front of us from time to time. Will you allow yourself to focus and dwell on that or turn towards Christ?
A few suggestions to "delight in the Lord:"
- Read the Bible often. If you've never read the Bible consistently before, start with the gospel of John. Philippians is good too. Check out www.youversion.com and sign up for a Bible reading plan. Something as simple as a verse a day can really give you something to hold on to and think about as you encounter life.
- Watch a sunrise and/or sunset.
- Spend some time in nature. Mountains, oceans, forests, vast plains...God created all this. It's amazing! Soak it in.
- Find somewhere/someone you can serve. Check out a local nursing home, hospital, homeless shelter...somewhere you can put others first.
