Hello Beloved! Here we are with recipe #10 in our 13 week series of healthy, delicious, no frills meals to help you build and sustain your temple. This week's recipe is Chocolate Black Bean Squares.
As you enjoy these familiar flavors, we often attribute to comfort foods, we encourage you to comfort your souls with the meat of the Word. (Hebrews 5: 12 - 14). Food can never satisfy soul pangs--only God can do that. So, let each bite of earthly food, remind you of the incalculable value of heavenly food. Set aside time to be one-on-one with the God who created you. Listen to Him open up of the truth of His Word by His Holy Spirit living in you. Feast, for feasting of this sort may be enjoyed forever without guilt.
If you are looking for a way to deepen your devotional time, and even start a practice of disciplined personal Bible study, consider taking care with the following resources:

"There are millions in this world who have yet to receive Jesus’ invitation because they don’t have any of God’s Word in their own language. As you give thanks over your meals, would you pray for the Bible less?" (10 Lessons We Can Learn from the Meals Jesus Shared). Consider blessing many by giving: https://www.youversion.com/giving/.
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
