Biscuits from God

Another goodie shared by a friend.

The Story

One Sunday morning at a small southern church, the new pastor 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 pastor opened one eye and wondered where this was going.

The deacon continued. “Lord, I hate lard.” Now the pastor 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.”

Let’s Pray

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.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.–Romans 8:28.

  1. What a prayer. Love it. The only problem I would have had hearing it would have been not laughing openly with a big grin on my face. Amen!
