God takes a Pumpkin from the field and turns it into the most wonderful pumpkin pie that you have ever tasted.

God picks us from the patch, brings us in, and washes all the dirt off of us.

Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff, which are seeds of doubt, hate, unforgiveness, bitterness, lustfulness and greed.

  Then He adds a little vanilla from the orchid, and just the right amount of sugar to make us sweet, and a little salt to give us flavor.

  And a dash of ginger so we will smell the sweet aroma of life. By adding this special spice it will invigorate us to do His work, and live life with enthusiasm.

He then adds cloves from the Evergreen tree. This will help us to always be optimistic, and know that if we are His children we will have everlasting life, because the Evergreen tree always stays green, no matter how hot are cold it gets. No matter how bad the storm is, it stands tall and green.

Because God did not want us to be dull and live a hum-drum life, He added a little All Spice, which is made up from a berry, and taste like several spices. So this way we will be willing to experience new and exciting things, and enjoy all the spices of life.

Then He added some cinnamon, that comes from the dried inner bark of several trees or shrubs of the laurel family. You see, this will give us just enough roughness to handle the tough times with a sure and strong attitude.

And of course He had to add a little flour, because the flour is what He needed to grind and sift us to get  out all of our impurities.

Then He added just enough undiluted evaporated milk, which is thickened by evaporation to half its weight, and then sterilized because He knew He needed to remove all of the heaviness and waste out of our lives that would keep us from living a abundant life.

And of course He added a couple of eggs. One of the eggs would remind us not to put all our eggs in one basket, because if we did we soon would fail completely.  The second egg would show us that God is egging us on, to accomplish our life’s goals and be all that He intends us to be.

God then decided He needed to add just a little water to dilute us, so we would not be so prideful and think we know all the answers. That way we would still seek Him for advice and direction.

After He adds all the ingredients He puts us in the fire and  bakes us on high to refine and purify us, just as the Silversmith does with silver.

And then He opens the doors to our heart to check to see if we are done; and if He can see His image in us, He takes us out of the oven and smiles. For God knows His recipe for life always comes out just right. For you see, God does not make mistakes.

And we become one of the most wonderful Pumpkin Pies in God’s Book Of Recipes, for you see we have been willing to be made into a perfection of God’s Love.
