My Pastor gives us a big laugh from the pulpit every time he talks about food. Why? Well, it is inevitable. Usually he mentions one specific restaurant in town:
“Dante’s on the Boulevard in Colonial Heights.”
See what I mean, I didn’t even have to look that up (awesome cheese-steak by the way). He uses food as examples as it comes up in various ways while preaching.
The other day my husband and I were treated to a lunch at Five Guys. I had heard my Pastor preach on a “more than enough” God using the fries as an example, but had not had such an experience until then. We ordered a large fry to share. When the bag got to the table we opened it up to reveal a fry filled bag. We had to dig for the container the order was supposed to come in. I know it is hard to picture so I am including a picture to express our gratitude.

We literally could not eat them all, there were so many. Well, that is what God is talking about when He does exceedingly, abundantly,. above all you can ask or think. He just keeps pouring in more. Until He thinks it will blow your mind when you open the bag.
This week a dear Sister in Christ, Holley, has shared an entry from her new book about Enough, and I want to invite you over to her post to reveal more about God’s heart for you. Click on Enough Beloved, and know that your cup is running over this week with more than enough of all the blessings that God can spill into and out of the bag for you!
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,

This made me smile! I love food analogies. We just got a Five Guys in our town…I may have to pay them a visit! 🙂
