Robert Joseph (RJ) ate supper with us last night. He originally declined my special fried okra. I asked him if he had ever tried it before and he said he hadn’t. I encouraged him to try just one piece and if he didn’t like it he didn’t have to eat anymore. He tried it and most surprisingly, especially to himself, he liked it! He said it tasted like the crackling parts off of a piece of fried chicken. I’m not sure if that was a compliment or not, but nonetheless, he liked it.


Sometimes we have to set aside our pre-conceived notions of what a decision is going to produce. We are limited to what we can see, hear and touch to determine what the outcome will be. We cannot see for ourselves God doing something that would require a miracle in our lives if we were to truly put Him first in everything; starting today.
