Trust Me! I'll Catch You!

    I went in the kitchen like throwing myself off a cliff without a parachute.
    I went in the kitchen like the little girl trusting her father’s invitation to jump down into the black hole of the deep well where he was working.  “Jump!” He called to her.  “I’ll catch you.”
    I went into the kitchen taking no thought beforehand what I should eat.  I prepared myself in no way to confront food or control myself around it.
    15 minutes later, I find myself being invited by the Lord to do the only thing He wants me to do: “Record the miracle.  Tell the story to anyone who will listen.  Invite anyone who is ready to ‘let go absolutely.’”
    So here’s the miracle for this morning: Weighed and measured . . . 2/3 cup cottage cheese, 2/3 cup peaches without sugar; 10 raw almonds.

1 JOHN 4;16-18 --
16  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.  God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
