We had waffles for dinner tonight. That is a rare thing for us. As a matter of fact, I don't even remember the last time we used the waffle iron! Anyway, J was out of town and when he is away, I don't do much cooking. My sweet girl likes waffles, so......waffles it was!
I made the batter.......
Sprayed the waffle iron with the non-stick stuff.......
Poured in the batter, waited for the iron to stop steaming, and...voila!.. a waffle! Not a very pretty waffle, but an edible one nonetheless.
Waffle is a funny word, don't you think? Say it out loud...waffle.....waffle....waffle. If you say it fast, it kinda sounds like a flat tire! :=) Okay, I digress... on to the point!
I was thinking about the other meaning for the word "waffle": waver, hesitate, unable to decide..... That reminded me of Eph.4:14 "that we may no longer be children tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes."
God has given me a standard, a plumb line....... His truth. It never changes, it remains constant, it is forever. I have all I need to not waver, to be consistent, to be a faithful testimony of His mercy and grace. And He promises to give me the strength to do it.... II Cor. 12:9 "...my grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made perfect in weakness...."
I pray the only waffle in my life will be the one on my plate!
