I have a Confession

20130319-235138.jpg

I have a confession to make…… I can’t cook worth a darn in the microwave :)
I had a hankerun ( that’s Okie for taste) for a boiled egg in my lunch salad and didn’t have any pre-made….. So I got the bright idea to cook one in the mic….. You can start laughing now….. Anywho….. I broke one into a glass bowl and popped it in the mic and set it for one min…. Now mind you I heard this little voice in my head saying put a cover over it and stand here and watch it BUT I walked away to put something away ….. Keep laughing….. All of a sudden I heard this LOUD POW! …… OK….. You can stop laughing now :/ what I saw was the worst mess I’ve ever witnessed in my microwave… EVER! Now before I go on, I feel the need to tell you that I first stopped and thought to my self…. Should I take a pic? ( because you all know I take pics of everything ! ) lol, but I quickly decided not to because, well, it wasn’t perfect and it wasn’t pretty at all and that made me not…. well….. Either one of those either. Visualize a LIGHT BULB over my head while washing and scrubbing out the mic….. Which btw looks great now :) …… Back to the light bulb….why do I always need to be perfect? I’m not sure, maybe because I’m a Leo or maybe because I have a self image problem or maybe I have a insecurity problem…… No maybes about it! I do :( now….. What do I need to do about it? I’m thinking I need to wash my mind with the watering of the word of God. Meditate on Gods word ( Selah… pause and think about it ) and memorize scripture and think on it so I can see myself the way God does :)

Image:
I have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. (Colossians 3:10 NIV)

And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man. (1 Corinthians 15:49 NIV)

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27 NIV)

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV)

Security:
It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. (2 Samuel 22:33 NIV)

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. (Psalm 16:5 NIV)

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. (Psalm 18:32 NIV)

When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” (Psalm 30:6 NIV)

You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. (Job 11:18 NIV)

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, (Psalm 16:9 NIV)

Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. (Psalm 112:8 NIV)

Whoever fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge. (Proverbs 14:26 NIV)

I will strengthen them in the Lord and in his name they will live securely,” declares the Lord. (Zechariah 10:12 NIV)

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.” (Deuteronomy 33:12 NIV)

My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. (Isaiah 32:18 NIV)

 ‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. (Jeremiah 33:6 NIV)

Kathleen’s Parable: Trying to be perfect is just way to hard……don’t do it.

Even though you are not perfect and even though you are insecure, God has you covered in all these areas so just learn to trust him in everything and learn to except yourself for who you are….. Flaws and all :)………. Ok Lord :) and don’t worry about what others think. It’s what God thinks that’s important :) Ok Lord :)

All this just because I goofed up an egg in the mic :) LOL.

FYI…… I’m sticking to the oven egg making system :)
