Today’s thought – Clean Your Plate


Good Morning

John 21:12
Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine.
And none of the disciples durst ask him,
Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.

Last night during family devotions,
I called my daughters to the table and
set a plate in front of each.
In the center of the table
I placed a collection of food:
some fruit,
some raw vegetables,
and some Oreo cookies.
“every day,” I explained,
“God prepares for us a plate of experiences.
What kind of plate do you most enjoy?”

The answer was easy.
Sara put three cookies on her plate.
Some days are like that, aren’t they?
Some days are “three-cookie days.”
Many are not.
Sometimes our plate has nothing but vegetables–
twenty-four hours of celery, carrots, and squash.
Apparently God knows we need some strength,
and though the portion may be hard to swallow,
isn’t it for our own good?
Most days, however. have a bit of it all . . .

The next time your plate has more broccoli than apple pie,
remember who prepared the meal.
And the next time your plate
has a portion you find hard to swallow,
talk to God about it.
Jesus did.
The Great House of God – Max Lucado

Matthew 26:39
And he went a little farther,
and fell on his face,
and prayed, saying,
O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will,
but as thou wilt.

With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
