What's For Dinner?

by - Saturday, November 29, 2014

Cooking can be therapeutic when at the end of a long busy work day, I can go into the kitchen and begin prepping for dinner. I pull out the onions, the veggies, the main course, and all the spices and seasonings I need and begin to put the meal together. I really can just let my taste buds go wild as I put a dash of this in and a dash of that in. When it's all done and on the plate, I feel like an artist.

Spiritual food is even more important to have. Physical food feeds the body, spiritual food feeds the soul. And we can get spiritual food in many ways, first and foremost from the Bible. God's word is what the soul needs in order to live in this crazy, mixed-up, upside down world. And when our hearts get broken or our spirits crushed, at the end of the day it will be God's word planted inside us that will keep us going. Many a time, it was a scripture I repeated over and over again and claimed for myself that I won the victory. 

Fellowship with other kindred-spirited brothers and sisters can feed the soul too. Being around friends helps us to not feel we're going it all alone in the world. Other people may even share your feelings without you even knowing it until you talk to them. I have found that refreshing cause I felt like, "Wow, I'm not the only one feeling this way..." God knows we need each other, we need to stand together, cry and rejoice together and also nothing's better than "breaking bread" with a fellow Christian friend. Something about having a meal and talking to my friend makes me feel like I can overtake a giant!

I even think it's fun planning our meals ahead of time and shopping for ingredients. I look at cooking the same way I do in design whether it be crocheting a hat or writing a blog post. I start with how I'm feeling that day and what I'm in the mood for. My hubby is so sweet cause he likes everything I put in front of him. He's not particular and so it's easy to cook for him. He even understands those days when I'm exhausted and I tell him I'm too tired to fix anything, he has no problems fending for himself. What a sweet heart he is!

In my imagination, I wonder what it was like to eat with Jesus. What did he and the disciples talk about that aren't in the Bible? Did they talk about their dreams for the future?, perhaps how John tried to reel in a fish and it got away?!, or what it was like for Peter to walk on water even just for a little while?! What would it be like to eat a meal and ask Jesus anything you wanted to ask? A movie that we showed at church is the nearest to my vision, called "The Perfect Stranger". I loved that movie cause in it the writers portrayed Jesus not as a whimpy God, but very intelligent and articulate and in the end, it was the lady, He was having dinner with, that came to the answers she was looking for without Jesus having to tell her. In this way, she understood so much better and realized what she was looking for all the time was a real relationship with Jesus. And, the end of the movie is just beautiful! You must see it! The link above is for the whole movie on YouTube.

Sooo...tell me, what's for dinner at your house tonight?
