Finding chocolate chips is rare treat in many places. When suitcase space allowed, these precious gems were excitedly added to a bowl and mixed together with flour and eggs and sugar. The end result, soft and chewy cookies, were a grace gift after long days.
Too often our life is compartmentalized, separating what we call our sacred, spiritual work and the ordinary tasks of each day. Instead of a holy mixing of the two, we keep up a barrier, almost like leaving the ingredients for cookies on opposite ends of the counter top.
We are blessed and sent by the Father, sisters, and He does not ask us to keep that distinction. He is part of every aspect of our day.
What has God been showing you about the value of the seemingly ordinary work you do?
Which area are you sensing that God wants to integrate more fully into the other parts of your life?
