Oh me oh my…I’m waaay behind on our series “Finding Christ in the Kitchen” My apologies! Life has been sooo crazy busy! Only 2 more days after this one and we are finished with the devotional part of the series. The following half of the series will be the practical ways we work and serve in our kitchen. (i.e.. meal planning, meal prep. etc.)
I am seriously praying about holding off on the second half of our series until the Fall. Only because I know that so many families are going to be on break and vacations. What do you think? Shall I continue through the Summer? Or start up in the Fall. Are you anxious to get started on the practical stuff or just want to play, play, play?
If you are just joining us in our series “Finding Christ in the Kitchen” feel free to hop on back to the introduction and go forward. Collect the FREE Printable Pages along the way if you like, to help with your journey!
Today is a simple day, a simple task…
Pray this for yourself:
“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
Remember on Day 11 Perfectionism, we talked about how being a perfectionist can immobilize us from doing anything. It keeps us from trying…
Today we are going to stomp on perfectionisms head and go for it!
So hop up and go to your cupboards and frig., see what is in there for a simple meal. For dinner or lunch..even for a fun snack! Then just do it! Make it.
Use only a couple of ingredients or more if you like..Mac and Cheese, Chicken and Rice! The thing is..you just have to go for it.
If nothing sounds good, pick the main ingredient and look up a recipe in a cook book! The main thing here is just to do it and don’t expect a perfect outcome. I have lots of easy recipes and you are welcome to use any of them
Perfectionism is a lie! Don’t buy into it!
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Hmmm if we are suppose to be perfect then why oh why does God’s word talk about our weakness.
I spent a lot of years with a lot of pride..which led to perfectionism..something I could never achieve.. obviously. So I became insecure and unsure and immobilized from trying anything new, because of course I might not do it “perfectly”. This led me down a path of destruction..I won’t go into that right now but..it wasn’t pretty.
So let’s rejoice in our weakness. Let’s rejoice that we NEED God and we NEED each other. It’s ‘’perfectly” OK!
Cook for yourself, cook what YOU like…What sounds good to YOU!
Here is a little Printable that you can use if you get a little stumped and want to look up some recipes and keep track of where you located them AND how they turned out!
So that was simple wasn’t it?!
Tell what you made! How did you stomp perfectionism into the ground?
and don’t forget to tell me if you would like to continue through the Summer or put things on hold a couple months?
Enjoy and Be Blessed! 12
