May I Take Your Order Please?

So tonight is dine out night. Ambiance is beautiful, the crowd is great and the music is pumping. The only issue is that waitress, “What’s her name again?” “She keeps messing up my order!”

How many of us have been in this situation where the waiter/waitress messed up our order?  Oh, and then we decide we are going to punish the waiter/waitress by withholding our tip or tip her grudgingly; giving her the loose change from our pockets. But in fact she took the order perfectly; it was the cook who she related the order to who messed up.

Although all the ingredients and utensils are present and we have the recipe to make the perfect dish; if we don’t hear the right instructions and measure accordingly, the order will still be prepared wrong. But GOD, who we express and tell all our petitions to will always get our requests right. The Intercessor Jesus stands on our behalf to clean up our petitions and hits GOD’s 24 hour line. Once it reaches God, perfection will be plated. Your daily bread will be served!

Just because we all arrived at the same place, at the same time doesn’t mean we will all eat at the same time. Depending on what was ordered and what ingredients are needed for the meal, you may have to wait a little longer to eat than others at your table. Don’t drool over other people’s plates because your stomach may can’t handle that dish. You put your order in already, so be patient; it’s on the way. One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! Pick it up! Ding!

SCRIPTURE: ”A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall be filled.” – Proverbs 18:10

ILLUMINATE your plans so you will be INVIGORATED to work your plans and be INSPIRED to soar!

I love this!!! I believe many of us can relate. Patience is definitely a virtue. No longer will I drool over anyone's plate besides my own. I much rather wait on that perfect dish:)
