Change and Chocolate Mousse (Repost)

I’ve always heard that change is inevitable… except from a vending machine. Ain’t that the truth? (Yes, I said ain’t. I’m being grammatically lazy today.)

Change IS going to happen in all parts of life: family, weather, jobs, circumstances, finances, our age… everything. If it is such a common occurrence, why do we fear it so much?

I know people personally that will go out of their way avoiding change, even tiny changes that involve finagling schedules or trying a new restaurant. That must be exhausting.

Don’t get me wrong. I love stability and consistency. I sometimes struggle with the ever-changing “plans” of the army, our future, our life. But I love the adventure of experiencing something new!

The other day, a friend here at Fort Benning emailed me a new recipe… It sounded extremely bizarre, and even my adventurous “I will taste anything once” self was a bit skeptical.

The recipe was for avocado chocolate mousse.

Say what??

That’s right. Avocado chocolate mousse. I like avocados. I LOVE chocolate. But together?  As a a female, I thrive on opportunities to eat seemingly fancy foods that are easy to prepare and relatively healthy.

So I decided to try it. I was going over to a friend’s house for Valentine’s Day since my husband is away doing army stuff and her hubby was working. Instead of eating an entire bag of Dove Chocolate to satisfy my V-Day semi-solo self, I thought I would give this avocado chocolate mousse a try.

It took a whopping 4 minutes to prepare. I made a “half batch” of the following recipe.

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup agave nectar (I used honey) 
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Cup open avocados and scoop out the insides. Combine with other ingredients and blend until smooth.

And guess what? Even though I was apprehensive, it was AWESOME. For real. It is super rich, so the half batch essentially made four generous servings. We paired it with strawberries and blueberries. You would have thought we were eating a $30 dessert on some fancy island somewhere.

Strawberries, blueberries and yes, AVOCADO chocolate mousse. Best. Dessert. Ever.

Here’s the kicker… I wouldn’t have known what I was missing if I didn’t take that chance to change things up a bit. What was the worst that could happen? So it could have tasted like poo and I would have thrown it out… Big whoop. (Not that I am a proponent of wasting food. I try to be a good steward.)

As I was indulging in this decadent and healthy dessert, I couldn’t help but thing about all the changes that God puts into our lives for a reason. Like the mousse, the “idea” might make us wrinkle are noses and immediately take on an attitude of skepticism. God, you want me to do WHAT? Why? When? NOW?!? 

Is God calling you to change something in your life today? Perhaps change a habit? Turn away from sin? Be more courageous in sharing your faith? Start small. Submit to Him and embrace the change. Make your own version of avocado chocolate mousse, even if the ingredients He gives you don’t really seem to fit perfectly together. Trust our Master Chef. Be  obedient and take a step of faith to answer His call of change… If you do, He might just reward us with an experience that is smoother, richer and more incredible than that avocado chocolate mousse.

Satisfied by His Recipe for my life,

How to Deal: “Rug Rippers” (Repost)

We’ve all been there. We finally feel like we’ve gotten our balance. We are walking on solid ground. Things might not be going absolutely grandiose perfecto, but they are going. We take what we can get and relish the stability. When suddenly…

WHOMP!!!  Someone (or something) rips the rug right out from underneath us.

Yep. We all have ’em in our lives. Those dreaded people/things that knock us completely off-balance and throw things out of whack.

I “fondly” call them the “rug-ripper-outters-from-underneath-us-ow-that-hurts.” That’s kind of a long name to refer back to in a blog post, so for the purposes of this post, I will refer to those people/events/things as “Rug Rippers” aka R-squared for short.

Sometimes we go from keeping our balance-- to falling down the stairs... Or tripping when the rug is ripped right out from under us.

If only we could have as much fun as this guy when we lose our balance…

Depending on the season of life, I seem to have a lot of rug-ripping moments. Sure, I bet some of that can be contributed to the fact that I am incredibly uncoordinated and trip UP the stairs on a regular occasion… but it also comes with the territory of being a Christian, an army wife, a minister, a friend…

Heck, just LIVING and BREATHING sometimes seems to be the ultimate set up for a rug-ripping experience.

It happened to my hubby and I last Friday night at 10pm. We were finishing up an evening of  rare together time at a holiday military function. All in all, it was a decent night and we were treasuring the time we had with one another. Things were going smoothly, we had survived another rough phase in army life over the last month or so. PRAISE. GOD.

Then a few unexpected phone calls and some changed (yet previously un-communicated) schedules later, the rug was ripped right out from underneath us. WHOMP!! 

We were faced with a decision. Do we let this unexpected circumstance derail all of the blessings that we experienced from God in the previous hours? Or do we somehow engineer a way to recover from our frustration?

We silently pondered (ok, steamed would probably be a better word for me) for a few minutes. We arrived home and I found myself in a battle– my flesh was frustrated and ticked, the Enemy was all up in my Kool-aid trying to get me to be upset at my husband even though he had about as much control over the situation as I did. All the while, God was telling me what I should do: Release it to Him.

Barn and I headed to bed shortly thereafter. We have a policy not to go to bed angry so we talked and vented for a while (fortunately, we managed not to get tick at each other– thanks, Jesus.) And then my Beloved suggested the perfect remedy to restore our balance that the R-squared event caused.

“Sharita… I know it’s really hard and we might not feel like it right now. But let’s pray about this.”

Confession: There was not a single bone in my body that desired to pray. I mean, I was MAD. Fortunately, there WAS a spot in my heart that KNEW I had to… So we prayed. Together. Out loud.

As we said amen, our balance was restored. Not even kidding. Immediate. And even with the jacked-up schedule we were facing the next day, our weekend wasn’t “ruined.”

I have continued reflect on this “rug-ripping” experience. And God gave me this vision. We live in a fallen world. Which means we are ALL going to be knocked of balance from all directions.  Picture it:

If the rug is ripped out from behind us… we end up falling forward… On our knees.

If the rug is ripped out from in front of us… We end up flat on our backs, wind knocked out of us… peering towards the heavens.

Both positions are IDEAL to pray, taking the issue or circumstance to God.

It might take a hot minute (or twelve) for us to recover from our fall. But if we go to God– He will help us back to our feet.  He WILL restore us. AND our balance.

No matter how big, unexpected or painful your rug-ripping experience is… God is sovereign over all. Nothing surprises Him. And when we are at our most unbalanced and weakest– that is when we are closest to God.

Loud ‘n’ Clear (Five Minute Friday)

It’s FRIDAY! Which can only mean one thing…

Being productive is optional. (Just kidding. You best get back to work before your boss catches you.)

But seriously– in my little blogging world, Friday equals FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY. Get pumped.
Five Minute Friday

Each week, I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker. She gives us a prompt. Then we write for five minutes and push publish.

It’s like wind sprints for the finger tips. (That sounds like a great slogan! Anybody?)

Let’s get this party started, shall we?

Today’s prompt: VOICE

Annnddd GO!!

*******

I’ve ALWAYS been a talker. Don’t believe me? Ask my Mama. From the moment I was able to form words, I have been chitty-chatting to anyone who will listen, telling them about our dog that had puppies or the tomatoes in the garden or how swim lessons were going.

Over the years, things have changed… a little.

Now, don’t get all excited thinking God has magically morphed me into the strong, silent type. (HA!) But as I reflect on how my voice has changed through the years (and not just because of puberty!) it really moves my heart.

My voice used to always be loud and somewhat obnoxious… Now? I have learned the power of compassionate silence.

My voice used to be focused on bringing laughter… Now? I am not ashamed when it cracks in the middle of a prayer.

My voice used to be somewhat robotic, desiring every word I said in a public speech or message to be absolutely perfect. Now? I no longer desire perfection– I simply desire to be faithful.

My voice used to be all about me… Now? I find myself talking more and more about God every day.

I am so thankful that while our voices might change throughout the years, that we can see it changing for Him. Even in the most quiet of God-moments… Our voices can praise Him, loud ‘n’ clear!

STOP!

*****

What is YOUR God voice like today? I would love to hear about your experience. Don’t be shy– leave a comment below!

Oh. And have a fantabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by…Your support of this ministry sure blesses our mission 🙂

Asking Him to be my Voice,

Embracing Change: Take it to the Bank (Guest Post)

My feet gently hit the pavement, in rhythm with the tiny “click, clack” of puppy paws. Although my mind wonders, my eyes are focused. They scan the horizon and then dart back to the ground. Just as we round the last block, a bright glint catches in my eye… there it is…

***

Today I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to guest post for one of my dear online (AND in real life!) friends, Tracy Steel. Here’s a few things to know about Tracy:

  1. She loves Jesus
  2. She is awesome
  3. Her ministry, One Degree Ministries, is incredible
  4. She is hilarious
  5. She is also a military wife
  6. She is a Kansas native
  7. AND… She is a K-State alumni.

As you can see per the list above, we were automatically kindred spirits when we first “met” online… and things just exploded (in a good way) when we got to meet IRL (in real life) this past summer. I love this gal and am so thankful to guest post over at her place today. Check out the rest of the post all about embracing change by clicking here.

Oh, and you know the drill. Don’t be shy about leaving comments here and there. We love feedback!

Here’s to embracing change (and awesome friends. And you can take THAT to the bank!

Changing in the name of Jesus,

Fine time to be be Refined

Today’s post starts with a mini science lesson… (It’s not going to require any complicated chemistry formulas or anything I promise. Hang with me… It IS Friday after all.)

Did you know that it take MILLIONS of years for graphite to be transformed into a diamond? Not only does it take a significant chunk of time, but it also requires temperatures upwards of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit and pressure that is 50 times greater than that on the earth’s surface.

Sheesh. That’s intense! (And now you have something to talk about at the supper table tonight. You are welcome.)

But seriously– for us as Christians to be formed into the treasure that God has called us to be, we all have to experience pressure… challenge… change…

In fact, we must be REFINED.

Which is what I am doing this weekend. (Hence the non-presence of Five Minute Friday.)

I am at The Refine Conference in Minnesota with my friend Kelli (she’s a breakout speaker!), my sweet mother-in-love, aunt and several other women who are to become my friends (although they may not know it yet…)

We are coming together to be Refined in different areas of our lives: Professional. Relationships. Emotional. Spiritual. Health/Wellness. Financial. Yep. The whole she-bang. This incredible conference is put on by Teri Johnson over at Keeping It Personal. 

I have a sneaking suspicion this weekend is going to be epic. I am expectantly anticipating God to transform or rather refine me in various areas of my life. And I couldn’t be more excited. (Maybe this diamond-in-the-rough Christian girl will be a little more diamond-y and little less rough when we are all said and done!)

So, with that being shared, we would all appreciate  prayers for God to move in might ways this weekend (and in the following weeks as we what we learn continues to “marinate.”)

Also, I am a bit curious… In what areas of your life (professional, relationships, emotional, spiritual, health/wellness, financial) do you feel you need to be refined the most? Why or in what ways? How has God refined you during your walk with Him? Leave a comment below with your response!

Now if you will excuse me, dear readers– rumor has it that is now a fine time to be refined.

From Pressed to Precious,

Finders Keepers

Hey all! It’s Friday, so here’s the dealio…

I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Five Minute Friday

We write. For five minutes.

No over thinking or excessive editing. We just go with it.

Let’s get this party started.

Todays Prompt: CHANGE

Annnddd… GO!!!!

******

I can hear the hum and occasional clank of our washer and dryer in nearly room of our house. It’s a new model, but when you are regularly washing army gear, laundry is not a quiet experience.

However, it’s important.

There have been a few “close calls” in our household when my beloved comes home late, but still needs his clothes washed for the next day. (And by next day, I really mean when he goes back to work in four hours.)

Praise the Lord my beloved is a man who knows how and plus/minus does his own laundry. But sometimes, we forget a very important step.

To change it over when that fateful washer timer buzzes.

Personally, few things are more disheartening than getting ready for work and realizing that the washer is still full of wet laundry– that we need to wear immediately.

Fortunately, this is an easy fix. Just change it over.

The concept of changing things around doesn’t just apply to laundry. Change is important in our life. When we change, we are growing– even though sometimes growing pains are, well, painful.

I love the feeling of changing my hairstyle… of course sometimes it doesn’t go as planned. (i.e. see my senior pictures from HS) The challenge of changing to a new state/home/neighborhood every 2 to 5 years as an army family provides initial nerves but a thrill of adventure…

And strengthening of our faith.

We can embrace the change in our world because we have the chance to follow a NEVER-changing God. He’s always constant. Always faithful. Always there to guide us as we change, adapt and grow.

Change in life can be a very good thing, just like when we remember to switch over the laundry from the washer to the dryer. We get fresh dry clothes.

And if we are really lucky? We get a little bit of BONUS loose change left in the bottom… and we all know the rule with those kind of surprises… finders keepers.

STOP!

***

What did you think my friends? What kind of change challenges you most in life? When have you embraced change and found that “bonus” surprise after it was all said and done? How does God keep you growing? I would love to hear all about it. Leave a comment below!

Til we meet again on Monday… May you be richly blessed!

Change is a good thing,
SGK

Opposition & Obedience

“Hi. My name is Sharita, and I have issues with obedience.”

(Insert chorus of “HI SHARITA” here.)

Sigh. Maybe I’m the only one… But my stubborn, driven nature sure provides opposition to my call to be obedient to the Lord.

I’m dealing with that right now. The seasons of our life in our family are changing and I think I am in denial. I had a good groove going, and now God is shaking up my little snow globe life, changing things all around.

I don’t mind change. I really don’t. Only I was really digging the chug-a-lug of the way things were.

However, He’s calling me out. And as I try to listen, I am faced with opposition from a variety of directions. Here’s a little opposition list, in no particular order.

1. The world. This wonderful (fallen-sigh) world that we live in is all about success, cash, being driven, self-gratification, more-is-more mentality. But all of that goes against the principles that Christ laid out before us. It makes things complicated.

2. The enemy. Oh yeah, can’t forget about this jerkface. The author of destruction and confusion gets all up in my grill, wreaking havoc on best intentions. This sneaky punk has a way with selling little half truth-lies to my brain/heart. And let’s not forget that Satan has a tendency to use GOOD things to distract us from GOD’S BEST. Have I mentioned that he is REALLY good at his job?

3. Myself. This is probably the biggest issue that I face. My flesh. My brain. My will. Me, me, ME. The first two opposing factors of obedience really accentuate the challenges that I have with the “Me factor.” However, as of late, God has really convicted me (again)… And here’s why…

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am very excited about the fact that this sweet blog/ministry is over a year old. I was stoked that I was able to blog plus/minus five days per week for a year. But in the last several weeks, God has spoken to me and called me to go something of a different direction with gentle (but heart-tugging) reminders like:

“Remember daughter, you are NOT defined by what you do, but by WHO you are in Christ.” 

“Be Still… And Know… That I AM Lord.” 

“When you work, remember WHO you are working for… You are employed by ME.” 

That being said, my Big Boss upstairs has called me to a season of SLOWING DOWN. (He has instigated this mandatorily through my continued struggle with pneumonia and other physical junk.) I have struggled taking time to rest and be with Him via Sabbath and regular sabbaticals. And this inability to physically slow down is spilling over into my spiritual/emotional life.

So, in a challenging act of obedience, I am taking a few weeks to reduce my blogging from daily (aka  five days a week) to three days a week. It might be temporary. It might be permanent-ish. Only God knows. (Literally.)

It kind of freaks me out. Because I like my routine. But I know that the Lord knows what He is doing. Plus, He has called my husband to tackle another month of the 7 Experiment by Jen Hatmaker... So for the next month we are fasting MEDIA. As in, no TV, no digital games and minimal Facebook/Twitter time for me (to simply keep my ministry going.) I am allowed 8 min per day on Facebook, 5 or less on Twitter. (And yes, I use a timer.) Oh, and absolutely no technology after my hubby walks in the door from a day of drill sergeant-ing.  Which is a great excuse to try out this less-computer, more-Jesus lifestyle.

I am not quite sure what this new season looks like for us… But I am excited to see what God is going to do!

Overruling the Opposition to Obedience,
SGK

PS: Where do you struggle most in your life with being obedient to God? What are your biggest obstacles or opposition? It would be so encouraging to hear about how God lifts you up through your experiences. Leave a comment below!

“Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.” ~2 Corinthians 10:6 (MSG)

Change and Chocolate Mousse

I’ve always heard that change is inevitable… except from a vending machine. Ain’t that the truth? (Yes, I said ain’t. I’m being grammatically lazy today.)

Change IS going to happen in all parts of life: family, weather, jobs, circumstances, finances, our age… everything. If it is such a common occurence, why do we fear it so much?

I know people personally that will go out of their way avoiding change, even tiny changes that involve finagling schedules or trying a new restaurant. That must be exhausting.

Don’t get me wrong. I love stability and consistency. I sometimes struggle with the ever-changing “plans” of the army, our future, our life. But I love the adventure of experiencing something new!

The other day, a friend here at Fort Benning emailed me a new recipe… It sounded extremely bizarre, and even my adventurous “I will taste anything once” self was a bit skeptical.

The recipe was for avocado chocolate mousse.

That’s right. Avocado chocolate mousse. I like avocados. I LOVE chocolate. But together?  As a a female, I thrive on opportunities to eat seemingly fancy foods that are easy to prepare and relatively healthy.

As I was indulging in this decadent and healthy dessert, I couldn’t help but thing about all the changes that God puts into our lives for a reason.
