“Since God is God, who dare challenge His prerogative? To murmur against Him is rank rebellion. To question His ways is to impugn His wisdom. To criticize Him is sin of the deepest dye. Have we forgotten who He is?” A. W. Pink, The Sovereignty of God I am thankful that God is God. He is the Potter and I am merely clay. I am being fashioned by His omnipotent hand into whatever tool He wants me to be for His glory. Continue reading thankful…for God’s sovereignty
Disclaimer: I’m keeping the title the same, but I will have you know I had no intent of posting so many words when I started this article! I am not trying to mislead anyone through some “form of cruel irony.” (Movie reference?) 😉 This post finds its roots in a book I was reading on humility.

The first attribute I chose to study is God’s sovereignty. [Sovereignty = … Continue reading speechless yet again
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

I love foodservice (and The Emperor’s New Groove. haha)! My church had a reception for new members this evening and I was asked to help prep and be a runner during service. The menu consisted of Minestrone, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Cornbread, Meatballs, Chips and Queso, and a variety of finger desserts. I must say, I have a new favorite knife-worthy vegetable – zucchini!

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 I am eternally grateful that I can rest in my powerful, sovereign God! He alone is in control of my circumstances and relationships. What a relief! I need to be focused on Christ.
