We made a chocolate cake today and put it in a car pan. I used a special non-stick mix suggested by a friend of mine to keep it from sticking to the pan, and, sure enough, it worked! The chocolate cake slipped right out of the pan!
The mix was equal parts of oil, shortening, and flour all whipped up together. So, while I was whipping the oil, shortening and flour together my mind wandered to the Trinity. You know, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Three of them all together, blended up in such a way that it's the perfect mix when they are wrapped around me.
Just like my mix, three separate yet one, God is the same. And as I rubbed the mix in my car pan, it occurred to me that as long as I continue to keep the mix of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in every aspect of my life I will not get stuck. I will continue to journey through life on the path He has carved out for me, His light shining the entire way. His presence deep within me.
Okay, I'm going to be thinking about non stick mix and chocolate cake this Christmas break, and the gift from my Father on Christmas. He sent His Son Jesus to redeem me, and then Jesus gave His Spirit as a deposit within me.
Say That Again, Dear God, Three in One, all in me. Thank you.
