life – blueberry muffins – and God


“Life … it’s like gettin’ a blueberry muffin in a coffeeshop when what you ordered was the apricot-nut. There aren’t any apricots or nuts in it, and you can get tied up in knots just thinkin’ about what you’re missin’, when the smarter thing to do is realize that blueberries have a nice taste, too.”

          from “Cold Fire” by Dean Koontz



This reminded me of –

Jas 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.



Seriously – Is getting the wrong muffin really that bad?  You might find that you like it.  Maybe even more than the blueberry you thought you needed.

 And isn’t it like that with God?  If things don’t go as we planned, as long as we have God with us – it’s all good.  No matter what.  And then we find out we like it.
