I woke up this morning hungrier than usual and for some strange reason I could not wait to have a bowl of raisin bran. I opened up a new box that I had purchased from Walmart. It happened to be the store brand.
I started pouring my bowl and sat waiting for the raisins in my bowl to appear. I double checked to make sure I had picked up a box that said “raisin bran”. And at last two shriveled up black raisins plopped out of the box into my bowl. That’s it… two raisins in the whole darn bowl.
Any of you who knows me knows that if I have not had my cups of coffee in the morning, I can be quite a stinker. I had not had my two cups of coffee so I was really grumpy and I did what anyone would do, growl…”I want raisens in my raisen bran”. Well I settled for the measly bowl and went over to watch the news. Only to find out that the supreme court had overturned the prop 8.
I was shaken to the core because our founding fathers had actually based the constitution on the foundation of God and his word. Here I was hearing that the Bible had been over turned in the Supreme court’s decision. My grumpy level went to GRUMPY.
The whole time in the back of my mind I felt duped. I was actually taken back that this box did not deliver what it said it was going to deliver. I pay good money for groceries these days and I expect to have raisins in the box of raisin bran. Now my government is doing the very same thing.
Now I know this seems a bit petty to some of you but God used this bowl of cereal to make a point to me. He placed on my heart that He indeed delivers. He always has. He says that He will always be the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He promises to never leave me and I can know that with 100% satisfaction that He delivers.
He will be the final judge, I can count on that and His word will still stand in my house. Just not in the White house.
I thanked God for this nugget. Tomorrow I am going for scrambled eggs.
