|Susan's Sunday morning breakfast!|
These are the kinds of texts she sends.
So I had a revelation the other day as I made my breakfast. It was early, so roll with me here. See, I LOVE peanut butter. It is one of the most delicious things on this earth. If you don’t like it, well, there’s something wrong with you, and I’ll add you to my prayer list.
Anyway, every morning I toast an English muffin and when it pops up I spread my creamy-goodness over it. Peanut butter has a heavenly fragrance to it. It is unmistakable. You don’t open a jar of peanut butter and have someone ask you if you just cut up an onion. No. You know peanut butter by its smell. Oh, and when you spread it over your warm English muffin??? It drips into every nook and cranny and makes every bite oh-so-delectable!
As I made my breakfast last week I literally stopped mid-spread. I looked at my English muffin. And then I said to God, “Know what, Lord? I want you to be just like this peanut butter in my life. Smear yourself over me, get every nook and cranny, until every bit of me is covered with you, and your fragrance rolls off of me.”
Told you it was early. Hadn’t even had my coffee yet.
But that didn’t make my words any less true of a statement.
Because you know what I want most in my life? Him. In every particle of my being. I want to look like Him. Smell like Him. My words to taste like Him—the words I speak AND the words I write. Because when people interact with me, I want them to have an encounter with the Living God.
He’s in the business of changing lives. And as much as I love peanut butter, I love that even more.
