At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Recent Reflections - May 2018: The Power of Prayer

This is the fifth Recent Reflections post of 2018.  Recent Reflections goes live the third Friday or Saturday of each month.  Each Recent Reflections post covers something that I'm reflecting on.  If you'd like to share a post with a similar theme, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your post, and I'll hop on over and leave a comment (and maybe some other readers will, too).

This month, I will be reflecting on the power of prayer.

"Prayer is the key that unlocks all the storehouses of God's infinite grace and power." - R.A. Torrey
Have you ever found yourself saying to someone, "I'm praying for you.  I wish there was more I could do"?  I have.  We make prayer sound like it isn't much, like it's such a little thing.  But let's really think about what prayer is: petitioning an almighty, all-knowing, everywhere-present God for His help. 

God is limitless and all-powerful.  He has unlimited resources and knowledge.

Tapping into that kind of help is not the least we can do; it is the BEST we can do.  

It amazes me how often we (read that as I) put Him in a box and act like, "Well, God, I've tried everything else.  I guess I'll let You give it a go," like He's a feeble child instead of the holy Creator of the universe.  We seem to forget that He can do ANYTHING...and we seldom truly believe He is capable.  Ouch.

The next time you're in a situation where you find yourself with prayer being the only way to help, be grateful.  It means you won't louse it up because only God can do it so you have to keep your hands off of it.  He is perfect, and if anyone can do something right, He can.  As it says in 2 Samuel 22:31 (KJV), "As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him."  If you trust a situation with Him, you can know it will turn out for your best.

It is my goal to always make prayer not the last resort, but the first response.

I think a lot more would turn out right, and I know I would definitely have less worry, if I did this!  May I always remember that God is able, and that I need to let Him do His job while I do mine - pray!

I truly hope this post has been a blessing to your heart!  What has God done in your life lately to bless you?  What are you reflecting on?

Have a wonderful weekend!
