I read this story recently and it made an impression. I looked and searched for the original author, but alas I could not not locate the author, yet whoever this person is, we can all learn from their outlook on life. This prayer, this conversation with God, is a great reminder to keep our eyes on the thing that God is doing and preparing us to accomplish (the abbreviated version). ‘Lord, I hate buttermilk. Lord, I hate lard. Lord, I ain't too crazy about plain flour. But after you mix 'em all together and bake 'em in a hot oven, I just love biscuits. Lord help us to realize when life gets hard, when things come up that we don't like, whenever we don't understand what You are doing, that we need to wait and see what You are making. After you get through mixing and baking, it'll probably be something even better than biscuits. Amen.' Romans 8:28 NLT "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Sometimes we get so caught up in our issues that we can’t see what all the ingredients are making. We get all hung up, stuck in the here and now, wondering and worrying, when what we really need to do is rely on God. Remember that God’s plans for us are good. Whether we can see that plan right now or not, we know we can rely on God. When we can change our point of view, we won’t get stuck wandering aimlessly around looking for the right ingredients when God has it all under control. We can move forward, confident that God’s got a plan, and He is making a way; we just need to remind ourselves that ‘better than biscuits’ is seriously awesome.
