Bread of Life Section...Popcorn

It's been a few weeks since I did a Sunday post. I'm not perfect. There...I said it. Now you can go on with life knowing yet, another, imperfect human. I had a wake up call this week, so I remembered to write a Bread of Life post. I got a lot of popcorn. What? Are you confused? Me too. All I know is that sometimes in life, we are faced with opportunities that make us uncomfortable. If we where popcorn, it would probably be hot and down right painful to be exposed to that oil and heat needed to make us burst out and become our best selves. Something appealing to behold happens when the popcorn finally reaches it's fullest potential. My personal popcorn moments have resulting in a lot of soul searching, prayers, and down right humility hitting me right in the forehead. Can I be grateful that God has seen fit to add a little heat and oil to my life? Yea, I guess I can be. I can embrace the challenges ahead. As long as I know the One in charge of the heat will never give me more than I can withstand.
Never doubt the Lord is in charge. All things work together for your good...always. Even trials turn into blessings, though at the time, they may seem almost too difficult to bare. It is my testimony that God is aware of us. Always. Isa 49:10 " They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor sun smite them, for He that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them."
All is well my friends. God Bless.
