Keep me safe, O God, I've run for dear life to you. I say to God, "Be my Lord!" Without you, nothing makes sense.
Psalm 16:1 (The Message)
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
If you noticed everyone loves to do something in which they can not excel. There are plenty of critics for different categories. For example everyone loves to eat. It is actually something that is necessary for health reasons. Everyone is not an excellent cook. For that matter some can not even bang pots and pans together. Consuming each day would that be in ABUNDANCE...Yes, No, Maybe So?? You know the body is a temple. A temple that doesn't belong to you or me. So I ask are you hungry yet? Hopefully you are because I have some food for thought. It's still early so how about an appetizer.
You know the good cooks can substitue ingredients in recipes and you never know the difference. They may add things and come up with something completely new. Well I would like to know who made us the Chef's of Life. Confused are we ? Many take things for granted. You have no problem in holding out your hands to receive. Then your brain stops functioning and the muscles connected to your jar go numb. There is a gaze in your eyes and the words THANK YOU never come out. At times there is another person around to slap everything back into place and speak the words for you and then you repeat it. Exactly how did that omission take place?
You are the same ones who come up with every excuse possible to open that special book. If you were really going through hard times you would be a wee more interested in the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth manual. That should include speaking with a wonderful friend named Jesus. It happens to be that Jehovah crosses your mind only until you're in a bind. That is practically being removed from the equation. What type of cook are you?
So consider this mouthful......What exactly would you do without the Lord? You believe that you're making it without HIM anyway. Imagine Jesus went on to do HIS own thang. You called and did not receive an answer. Your call went to the voice mail. Is it possible that the Lord sat there and watched the call come in on the caller id? After seeing that it was only you, hmmph felt like it was something of little importance and that it could wait. Now, who will get you up in the morning? Of course you do....Exactly what is inner timing? You really believe that alarm clock does the trick. That niche' of time each day, never thought it was Jesus.
Just because you didn't see HIM. We knew it was something there but you never did see it. Doesn't quite matter you've taken it away. Everything that you can not see, doesn't mean that it is a false being. There is still plenty that you do believe. Example is air, take a few sips now. What are you doing? I don't see a thing. Aha, aha but you know it is there. CORRECT??? You don't dare want to call it Jesus. What is it then? Just the luck of the draw. I don't think so. Well you just removed it Chef. So what on earth will you do now? Add your own spices and see how far you go.
Good or bad I will continually praise the Lord's name because I know that HE's brought me through too much. There is no way that I could have made it without the Lord. There is no DOUBT. So I don't have a problem saying THANK YOU! I may not be the best cook but Jesus is an ingredient that I will continously keep at my side. Why don't you learn to use HIM? Then my friends you can lift HIM up and tell Jesus what it is that you want. Cook daily with the main ingredients...Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
FOLLOW THE RECIPE....AMEN
I'm too BLESSED to be STRESSED.
It is my desire to give comfort, peace, and joy while riding "Through The Storm".
