Chargrilled Biscuits

You know that smell of burnt popcorn in the microwave? Worst smell ever, right? Wrong! Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

A biscuit wrapped in foil cooked until the inside of the microwave literally melts away- that’s the worst smell ever!

The melted-microwave-chargrilled-biscuit smell was the result of my son deciding his biscuit should cook for a good long time.

Two thoughts started battling for what would happen next. Thought number one: Pitch a justifiable hissy fit. Thought number two: Remember you need grace so you should give grace.

I felt like reacting out of thought number 1. But, somehow, I made the conscious choice to let thought number 2 reign me in.

My son learned how difficult it is to rid a house of horrific smells and I learned I actually do have the capacity and the ability to pause and allow space for grace in my heart. For more visit Proverbs 31 Ministries at Proverbs31.org.

Thank you for reminding us that we need to give our kids grace, just as our Lord God give us not only grace, but mercy; and His mercies are NEW EVERY MORNING!!! How GREAT is HIS faithfulness and love towards us!!!
