Are you there, Lord?

This past month has been a whirlwind of events and emotions. Sometimes, our lives can seem so chaotic, that we may wonder how we are even breathing. I have had to remind myself daily that "God is in control!" There have been days that I couldn't get out of bed, brush my teeth, or even shower from the weight of stress that was filling my body. I am very thankful for my brothers and sisters in Christ that would constantly whisper the words "God is control!" to me. God is my anchor. He is my refuge. He is my everything. Even on my worst day, he still loves me unconditionally and faithfully. His mercy is more than I deserve and his love is greater than I can imagine.

Friend, if you are struggling today, choose to trust him! Constantly dwell on the words, "God is in control". Say it silently; say it out loud; shout it to the heavens above! Do whatever it takes to exchange conversation with God, draw closer to him, and rest in his arms to deliver you, because "God is in control!".

Psalm 73:26 - "My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart: he is mine forever."

Note from God

1 Corinthians 2:9 "However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him."

We cannot begin to understand all that God has in store for us on this earth or in heaven. This world brings much sorrow and hardships, but this world is not all there is. In your times of struggle, REMEMBER: The BEST is yet to come! Lean against Jesus' chest and feel his heartbeat and breath upon your life. Trust him to make your paths straight and to give you rest.

When our world is shaking, Heaven still stands!

Seeking wisdom from God,

Resurrection Rolls

We started our Easter morning with the family making resurrection rolls as we discussed Jesus dying on the cross, his burial, and his resurrection!  A great lesson in the kitchen that proved to be humbling and delicious!

Camo is ready to get started!

Ingredients and Directions:
You will need a marshmallow to represent Jesus and his purity.  Roll the marshmallow around in melted butter which represents the oils for embalming. Next, roll the marshmallow in cinnamon and sugar which represents the spices used to annoint the body of Jesus.  Then, wrap the marshmallow in a crescent roll triangle that represents the cloth that wrapped Jesus' body after his death. 

Everyone was excited about making Resurrection Rolls!

Place in 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until crescent rolls are golden brown.
The oven represents the tomb. 

When the rolls are done and cooled, open the crescent roll (cloth) and discover that Jesus (marshmallow) is no longer there.  He is risen!  The crescent roll is empty just like the tomb!

Happy Monday after Easter everyone!  I pray you have a blessed week!
