I am sitting hear listening to it pour down rain outside and making Monster Cookies for our Dave Ramsey class tonight. As I was mixing the ingredients together for these cookies I began to make an analogy. If you only take one ingredient it does not make a cookie but if you take several ingredients and blend together it makes a delicious, mouthwatering cookie. I love Monster Cookies, jus sayin. Any way, isn't that just like our God, he takes just little ol me and mixes it with the ingredients of his spirit, such as(love, peace, joy, longsuffering, patience, gentleness, kindness meekness etc.) you get the picture and makes us into something sweet and wonderful for his kingdom. Monster cookies would not be good without the sugar, butter, m&ms, peanut butter, oatmeal etc., My prayer today is that you would just let Jesus mix you all up with some of his ingredients so that you can become "Monster Cookies" for his kingdom. Not literally, but that we would bring about a sweetness to his kingdom and to his work. I for one am having to work on this to let the fruits of his spirit become more evident in my life and that I would live a life that is pleasing to my heavenly father.
