Looked bland. Tasted anything but. Looks can be deceiving.
Flame went out by accident, as did the light. With a push and turn, it came back on.
Furious boiling – no other way for sweetness and essence to be drawn out.
A rich broth – made sweeter by adding sour lime juice.
Last slurps – saved the best for the last.
Mirrored our conversation in many ways.
Looks can be deceiving – people and things we previously judged may turn out to be the very ones to come to our aid in our hour of need. God humbles us.
Light can suddenly go out – or so we think. God turns us around toward Him – and light comes back on. Perhaps even light we didn’t know before.
Caught in a furious situation. God’s redeeming grace ensures we are not consumed; instead, essence emerges.
Sourness, whether by our choice or not, can make our narratives sweeter. God inspires us to pray for purity of heart that we may truly see.
The best is yet to be – God has begun a good work in us, and will be faithful to complete it.
God will do it.
