If You Feel Like Nothin’

I just made a double batch of my fudge brownie recipe, to send with friends to use at their children’s camp. I did lick the spoon –always willing to risk salmonella for the sake of chocolate.

I wish you could smell my house right now.

I refuse to buy a box mix because my homemade recipe is so good. Besides, isn’t there a lot more glory when a woman cooks from scratch over using a box mix?

Just sayin’.

God makes things from scratch.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty…” (Genesis 1:1-2 NIV)

That’s really starting from nothing and whipping up something amazing.

We’re scratch.

Sometimes we feel like the earth in its beginning –formless and empty. We wonder, What can possibly become of my life?

“God chose the weak things of the world…” (1 Corinthians 1:27 NIV)

I was recently inspired by an interview with Duck Dynasty star, Jase Robertson, who says, “God uses flawed people to spread His message.” He went on to say he thought people would be encouraged that if God could use a scary-looking country guy like him, He could use anybody.

You’re the simple ingredient God chooses, and he plans to whip up your life into something incredible.

Have faith.

Cooking from scratch isn’t so quick and easy as a box mix.
