Creation – My Birth
My birth was planned and I was born in the 1960’s. I come from a family of bakers. My grandfather started the legacy then, he passed it to my father and my uncle and they passed it onto their spouses and then their children.
Because, I have fond memories of being a daughter of a particular baker; my father. I would like to pass along my journey as a daughter of a baker and as a child that once was lost, but, has since been found.
We were created with a purpose and for a purpose. What is my purpose? What have you done for other people? What does God want to do through me? Why was (ingredient) or (you) created for? Was it to feed or fuel us?
Baking ingredients can have multiple uses; then there are some ingredients that do not do well together, then there are some ingredients that can cause some bad outcomes or even forgetting an ingredient can cause something to not rise (sink or sulk).
Whether it is decorating a baked cake or covering up a mistake the mistake is still there, we may have covered it up but, know that” it is only temporary. Thinking that not seeing it will hide it from being be known is not true. I have some news for you, when you ice a torn edge of a cake, you will need to use a whole lot of icing on a spatula or you may even need to use an icing bag in hope that you will not cause the cake to crumble more, these decorating cover ups (mistakes) are much like our sins.
Upon the first attempt you will get lots of cake crumbs mixed up in your icing or better yet, they are still exposed, the icing will cover up the mistake for a short span of time, but, sooner or later the icing will start giving way pulling away because the damaged area has no foundation to hold onto, it will crumble and fall away from the cake. Much like us floundering or even falling to our knees begging God for forgiveness.
The icing needs to be able to stick to something firm. It’s the same with life, we need to have a firm foundation. That firm foundation is God!
Spending time reading the bible you will learn why things have happened and how you can become a new creation.
I will discuss all the flaws I had in my life, I hope to inspire you through what I am about to reveal to you. You may wonder what it is like growing up as a baker’s daughter in a family of bakers. Well, I can tell you this much it has its ups and downs. I will walk you through my life as a baker’s daughter and educate you along the way.
Growing up our family had so many variations as to what normalcy was, as I am sure it is within your family unit. I was brought up in a family that never divorced, they stuck it out till death do us part.
Our family life was challenging. My life existed in a dysfunctional family. The only normalcy was being with my grandma, but, that had its challenges too.
Before we can get to where we need to be we must learn what it takes to get there. So, I ask you, who are you and what are you called to do? I want you to think long and hard about the following “I or it can”’ statements prior to seeking the answer that I have left out below. I was at work one day when God laid a particular ingredient on my heart of which I am ready to share with you through my writings.
