The beauty of simplicity. Mushrooms and Sage. mmm mmm mm Its amazing how you can take the simplest (and sometimes most overlooked) ingredients and create something so beautiful.
I get excited when I use the simplest ingredients to create something amazing. Which is safe to say pretty much goes for any of you when you’re experimenting within your craft. So why don’t you feel the same way about the workmanship of Pops? Meaning… Why do you feel the need to fix or correct something that God has already made so amazing?
When I’m cooking I try not to lose the integrity of my ingredients, in other words I’ll keep the seasonings simple, salt and pepper…then flavor whatever I’m cooking with natural herbs and some spices. Simply because I don’t want the seasonings to overpower and hide the main ingredients. Its the main ingredient for a reason, it already tastes great as is… why go overboard with the extra seasonings? Thats just absurd!
How do you think Pops feels? He created you in His own image, so why do you feel like you need “extra seasoning” to be good enough? You are the main ingredient in His perfect plan, nothing else is needed. When you start adding “extra seasoning” it means that you are trying to change or improve your natural state…the natural state of God. Who are you to doubt the workmanship of God? Who are you to think that your “extra seasoning” is whats best over Gods original creation? Are you that much better of an artist? Are you that prideful in your own abilities that you can’t trust Pops?
“The wicked think, ‘God isn’t watching us! He has closed his eyes and won’t even see what we do!” Psalm 10:11 (NIV)
You = Main Ingredient
Faith & Spiritual Relationship with Pops = Salt & Pepper
Some Spice = Works (ordained by God)
That’s all you need to be the amazing, beautiful, smart, successful, talented person that you ALREADY are! No “extra seasoning” needed! Don’t be so prideful in your own abilities that you can’t depend on God. When you’re in Pops’ presence, there is no room for pride. No room for “extra seasoning.” No room for insecurities or arrogance. Accept Pops and allow Him to make you aware of who YOU truly are through Him – and Him alone!
God Sees You..
