Recently, I’ve been trying some new things.
Especially, in the area of baking
It began with my prayer to make sourdough starter again and use it in breads for my family.
My last starter was houses in the garage fridge.
Our son discovered, when he went for something else, the fridge had died, a while ago by the contents.
He was kind enough to dump the starter and put the rest of the contents of that fridge into the garbage.
So, I was hesitant to begin again, until I found a recipe online and felt it was the Lord answer to my prayers.
So, I began the starter and after 8 days made whole wheat English muffins.
Today, I tried whole wheat crackers.
I don’t have either recipe down yet.
The English muffins are a bit too small, because I don’t have a biscuit cutter, but it’s on the shopping list!
The crackers are under cooked.
But that’s okay, I’m still learning.
I’m going to try bagels, next.
I’m hopeful they’ll turn out, but if they don’t I’ll try again.
It’s part of the gifts God gives us, learning about His creation, even if it’s something everyday like baking.
For no matter what one already knows, there’s always more to learn.
Because our Creator is infinite, His creation is incredibly detailed and complex, with opportunities to learn new things and praise Him in it.
Romans 1:20 NKJV — For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
I’m praising God for the opportunity to learn and I’m thankful for His gifts, even when things don’t turn out right, I know it’s an opportunity to praise Him.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your creation. Thank You for teaching me so many things each day. Lord, please help me to learn to make food for our family in ways I’ve not done before. Lord, thank You for the abundance of things in our lives. Please help us to use them for Your glory. Lord, let my lips be filled with Your praise! For You are great and Your invisible attributes are clearly seen throughout Your creation. How great You are, Jesus and greatly to be praised! Amen.
