Prep meals again


Last night I made a (2 lb) beef roast with a jar of pepperoncini peppers & it's liquid... Cooked it in the slow cooker on low for 8 hrs and pulled it apart with a fork. When we're ready to eat it this week, we'll set some on a sesame seed bun with some fresh sliced swiss... mmmMMMM!! (idea is from "A Year of Slow Cooking".) Can be served with mac-n-chz or mashed potatoes.

Today in the crockpot is a pork tenderloin, cut to fit, with 1 Tbsp garlic pepper spice, 1/2 tsp (kosher or sea)salt... cook on low 6 hours, add jar of BBQ sauce and a tsp of seasoning salt, cook two more hours. Pull apart and eat on onion buns with slaw : ) Can be served with sweet potatoes fries or raw cauliflower and dip.

The right kind of fear



The Right Kind of Fear


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Proverbs 1:7 HCSB


Do you have a healthy, fearful respect for God's power? If so, you are both wise and obedient. And, because you are a thoughtful believer, you also understand that genuine wisdom begins with a profound appreciation for God's limitless power.
God praises humility and punishes pride. That's why God's greatest servants will always be those humble men and women who care less for their own glory and more for God's glory. In God's kingdom, the only way to achieve greatness is to shun it. And the only way to be wise is to understand these facts: God is great; He is all-knowing; and He is all-powerful. We must respect Him, and we must humbly obey His commandments, or we must accept the consequences of our misplaced pride.

A healthy fear of God will do much to deter us from sin. -Charles Swindoll


The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else. -Oswald Chambers


It is not possible that mortal men should be thoroughly conscious of the divine presence without being filled with awe. -C. H. Spurgeon


It is an act of the will to allow God to be our refuge. Otherwise, we live outside of His love and protection, wondering why we feel alone and afraid. -Mary Morrison Suggs

Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, others have expectations of me, and I have hopes and desires for my life. Lord, bring all other expectations in line with Your plans for me. May my only fear be that of displeasing the One who created me. May I obey Your commandments and seek Your will this day and every day. Amen
