Mixed Blessings!

John 10: 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.

 I knew we were going out to dinner at a favorite restaurant where we were staying that night. I had prayed earlier that God would heal my food, body, and eating and my willingness for Him to do it. The rest of the day, I was mentally struggling with what to order when I got to the restaurant that evening.

My favorite is their waffles with pecans. My downfall these days is nuts. Somehow I rationalized that if I wasn't eating sweets, eating nuts was a healthy food and was O.K. Sure they are O.K., but that's only if you eat an appropriate amount of them, not half of a bag!

Well, when we got to the restaurant, they only handed us the dinner menu even though you can order off of the breakfast menu all day. I was initially frustrated, because the waiter didn't come back until much later and it would have held everybody up if I had asked for a breakfast menu, at that point.

Then, it was as if I heard Jesus' voice, but it was really a thought, that really this was a mixed blessing from God. In my not getting the breakfast menu the way I wanted, Christ had saved me possibly getting the order of waffles with nuts that would throw my eating off again, so soon after I was trying to get back to putting things into Christ's very capable hands. In fact, that's what He did. I realized my initial frustration was misguided and Jesus was doing exactly as I had prayed earlier in the day. What a miracle! If Jesus can do it for me, He certainly can do it for you, as well!  John 10: 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.
