If you know me, you know I’m not good at asking for help…
Last week I asked someone if they had a bread maker and that if they were going to get rid of it I would be happy to buy it from them!
And lo and behold today when I walked in there was a bread machine and some really cool other kitchen gadgets!
Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
God is working on my mouth and my heart… He’s got His work cut out for Him, but I am surrendering everyday (sometimes every minute, I mean second) and sometimes I’m better at it than others, but I really want to be more like Him and less like me.
No matter how much I succeed or how I fail, I am thankful that God never gives up on me. That He loves me with an everlasting love.
I’m standing on His Word and in His love!
Jer 31:3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
Oh… and my planning for the week is going well!
We have a Colombia meeting today at 7, so instead of ‘planning’ to go out to dinner, I made dinner last night (chicken with whole wheat noodles, zucchini, mushrooms, spinach) and we will just heat it up at Metro before the meeting instead of spending money to go out and its good for us! Yesterday was chicken quesadillas on whole wheat tortillas with spinach & veggie cheese!
Matthew 25:13-30 14"Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. 15To one he gave five talents[a] of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. 17So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. 18But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.
19"After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.'
21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
22"The man with the two talents also came. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.'
23"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
24"Then the man who had received the one talent came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.'
26"His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
28" 'Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
