God is Faithful & new recipes

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”- 1 John 5:14-15

It's funny because people around me ask me to pray for things that are beneficial to me and to them. Like they will say "Pray that we get to pick our weeks off" (when we're temp laid off). LIke somehow if I pray that we get to pick them that we will. I pray it hoping God will be merciful on us, and I think part of it is my outlook, because I recognize that God does bless me like crazy and I see Him in small and big things, but really, I am blessed like crazy. In a time when the world "seems to be falling apart" I am just clinging to Him because no matter what happens, He is good. He is good always.

Psalm 104:27 These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.

One thing that I love to do it cook for my family, unfortunatly for whatever reason, I don't always. It takes a lot of planning. But I am. Last night I made the filling** for the enchiladas I am making for Sunday, today I am making Santa Fe Chicken to be served with tortilla chips for today. And Tuesday... Creamy Enchiladas. Yes, it's a Mexican theme this week. We love Mexican and that way it's a lot of same ingredients, uses everything up (no waste) and keeps the costs down :) and I'm also making lemon tea cookies

Next weeks it's Kelly's lo mein (which is AMAZING) and homemade egg rolls

**for the filling I make this recipe - that looks nothing like the picture when I make it, pull out all the onions, green peppers, and pork - shred it and put in corn tortillas topped with cheese and sauce.

I love that verse from 1 John. We sing it in church a lot, and in our Spirit-Filled Bibles it says that we will have the petition that we desire of him. One thing we have been doing (and seeing awesome things happen!!!!) is to write a petition to God. A petition is a written request to a sovereign authority, and so we have written "letters" to God with our petitions...and the most awesome thing is that He has been honouring them.

It's not a "gimme this" kind of thing, but a "God, this is what is on my heart, this is what your Word says and that I'm standing on, this is my need" kind of thing.

Like I said...I love this verse and it immediately caught my eye. Thanks! :0)
