But God would feed you

Psalm 81:10, 13-16 Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things . . . Oh, that my people would listen to me! Oh, that they would follow me, walking in my paths . . . But I would feed you with the finest wheat. I would satisfy you with wild honey from the rock.

Open wide

I knew a family that made a batch of cookies every day starting with December 1. By Christmas, they had 24 kinds of cookies to share with family and friends!

I’ve never gone that far, but baking tons of cookies is part of my family tradition, going back to when I was growing up in the village of Nebaj in Guatemala, and we took plates of cookies and homemade candy to virtually everyone in town (receiving dozens of yummy tamales in return).

I haven’t really learned to be moderate about Christmas cookies. So I’m trying to figure out how that works with the concept of simplifying this year, which I believe God is calling me to do. What might my family miss of what God wants to give us if my focus and energy go into extensive baking sprees?

I don’t have clear answers yet, but I do know I’m hungry for the finest food, the good things God has for us. I’m opening my mouth wide—even while I’m baking cookies!

  1. How handy to have a cute and willing illustrator for your blog posts, Debbie! 🙂 Thanks for your efforts and reflections on simplicity and focus, while attuning to God’s lavish desires for us. May God give each of us the insight into what He wants for us in this season, this year, and the readiness to trust and obey.
