You and Me, We are the Cookies

It takes just a few moments…

I believe the Holy Spirit speaks to us all the time.  It isn’t always a mystery.  Profound things are revealed, no doubt — for the Word of God is often too big for our feebly and finite minds.  Wisdom and revelation comes to us when we are in need.

And yet, sometimes it is just a simple word picture…

A concept….

A metaphor to remind us.

To remind us of WHO God is.

The Holy Spirit uses our everyday common and speaks into the things that are familiar.A Saturday passing of time….and I heard the Holy Spirit speak to me.

You and me, we are the cookies.

We are similarly formed, plain, and naked.  Some of us are smooth edged, some of us have dust on our feet, some of us are broken and repaired, and some of us are burned a bit…all of us similar and all of us different.

GOD is the Creator; He made us.

Blessings are the specials and sweets added onto our lives.  Carefully placed, thoughtfully sprinkled, always given in just the right amount as each of us uniquely needs.

GOD knows; He knows what we need and He blesses to make our lives beautiful…and yummy! GOD is the one who blesses.

Why?  Why does God bless us?

Psalm 67 tells us why:

“May God be gracious to us and bless us, and make his face shine on us, so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.”

 May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.
 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you rule the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations of the earth.
 May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.

 The land yields its harvest;
    God, our God, blesses us.
 May God bless us still,
    so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.”

Yes. So we can shine, so we can praise, so that His work and plans and gift are known…..and so all will fear him.

We are blessed to be enabled to be a blessing to others.

You and me, we are the cookies. 

Have you heard the Holy Spirit recently? Can you hear Him in your everyday common and familiar? Bend an ear and listen…..

And await the blessings!
