One Sunday morning at a small southern church, the new

preacher called on one of his older deacons to lead in the opening prayer.

The deacon stood up, bowed his head and said, "Lord, I hate buttermilk."

The preacher, and a few others, opened one eye and wondered where this was going.

The deacon continued, "Lord, I hate lard." Now the preacher was totally perplexed.

The deacon continued, "Lord, I ain't too crazy about plain flour.

But after you mix 'em all together and bake 'em in a hot oven, I just love biscuits."

He paused, "Lord help us to realize when life gets hard, when things come up that we don't like,

whenever we don't understand what You are doing, that we need to

wait and see what You are making. After you get

through mixing and baking, it'll probably be something

even better than biscuits." Amen.

Trusting the Lord isn’t always an easy task, but it is absolutely essential for having the peace that passes all understanding. As the

older gentleman prayed, no doubt from living it, we don’t always understand all that God is doing but we trust Him to do what is

absolutely best. He doesn’t mind us expressing ourselves to Him in prayer, always with an attitude of “Thy Will be done.”

Trust in the Lord with all thy might!” Proverbs 3:5
