Just a Thought....

Just a thought that came to me while fixing scrambled eggs for lunch a few weeks back:)

Our humanity: There are often split seconds in life when we think we've got it all together. I'm living the life God's given me, waking up and spending time with Him, doing what He's given me to do, and now I'm fixing hot tea and scrambled eggs for lunch. Life isn't perfect, but it's under control. Then out of nowhere, reality crashes into me and the egg I just cracked open spews yoke onto my clothes and egg shell shatters into the bowl. Oh good grief!

His Grace - God smiles at us constantly. I'm sure He was laughing in delight while I went through my morning and early afternoon routine. But then He got concerned as He watched the path of my thoughts turn to self sufficiency. When the egg splattered, He wasn't surprised, but He did take pity. He reminded me that I can't do all things without Him. He then lovingly allowed me to pour the beaten eggs into the frying pan and take notice that the egg shell pieces I had missed had unusually stayed behind in the bowl.

Humility and Thanks - What a lesson. We can't do it on our own and we're not supposed to. When we try, things get messy. Praise God that He cares for us enough to help clean up the spills and re-direct us back into His capable hands. He could have let me eat the egg shell, but He wanted to show me how much He does care over every single aspect of life and so He removed that shell and blessed the food that He prepared.
