#MoralStory: A Lesson From A Ketchup Bottle

Isn’t it amazing the things God uses to teach us a lesson? I learned to BE STILL from someone, no something: a bottle of ketchup.

I banged on the top and the sides. It wasn’t plastic so I couldn’t squeeze it or rush it short of poking a knife into the bottle. I waited and waited for the slow drip of the red stuff on my fries.  My plate had a lot of fries for that ketchup to cover and to wait would’ve taken all day.

I banged on the sides again and the top and shook it for all it was worth. I didn’t have all day.

Suddenly, it came to me, A MountainWings Moment; this is how I am when I ask God for something.

I have a lot to cover and very little time and even less patience.  God, on the other hand, has all the time in the world and does things in HIS own time and when HE is ready.

I can shake, squeeze, and bang all I want, but the blessing won’t be poured on in my time but in HIS time.
