God will never leave His children begging

I was just checking on that nice little feature on here called “Blog Stats”. And I was noticing my “Top Searches”, which are….

  • handsfrozentothesword
  • battles of victory in the Bible
  • God will never leave His children begging

That last one really gets me. God will never leave His children begging. Never. Never….

And I wonder to myself… how many people stumble onto this little blog of mine in the middle of the vast blogosphere… simply because…. they want to be reminded that God will never leave His children begging?

Whoever you are, wherever you’re at right now….. know that God is right there with you. He sees your tears. He watches you cry yourself to sleep at night when you think no one else sees. He hears your cries for help. And He is right there. Not there like an invisible friend is there. He is there like the best friend whose shoulder you want to press your face against and spill tears on right this moment. He’s there like the hero you need to break down the prison door and release you.  He loves you. Oh, how He loves you…..

God will never leave His children begging.

Never.

  1. Yes, he is the hero in the great adventure he has planned for our lives. God is the one place, one time, where good always wins. In fact, it was won a long, long time ago.

  2. No, you don’t know me, I’m just some guy who reads a lot.

    I’ve attached a bread recipe that has helped our family through some seriously rough spots. You can also roll out the dough for pizza, or mix cinnamon and sugar and butter all over and roll/cut for cinnamon rolls. It seems like it takes a long time, but its only about 5 or 10 minutes worth of work with a lot of waiting.

    ———-

    Time: About 2 hours (Actual Work Time: about 15 minutes)
    *****************************************************
    BigatticHouse dinner rolls: (one dozen)
    4 cups flour
    1 1/4 cups warm water ( Water should be warm, but not boiling. )
    2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 packets)
    1/2 tablespoon salt
    1 teaspoon sugar (or 1-2 Tablespoons if you want fluffier rolls)
    1-2 tablespoons cooking oil/olive oil/whatever

    1. dissolve yeast and sugar in water in large mixing bowl.
    2. mix yeast until dissolved.
    3. add 1 cup of flour and mix
    4. add salt
    5. continue to add flour 1/2 cup at a time mixing.
    6. flour will seem *VERY* wet, keep mixing. You can use a spatula to “fold” it.
    7. If you feel like a little exercise, oil your hands and knead in the bowl.
    8. The bread will “come together” after a few minutes, and feel “springy”. It will be smooth, If it looks like biscuit batter- keep kneading. Once it is smooth, it means the gluten has developed.
    9. Go ahead and knead the dough for a little while longer, you won’t hurt anything.
    10. Oil a glass or metal bowl. flop your dough into the bowl and flip over – so your dough is lightly covered in oil. Let sit 1 hour in a warm place. you may want to cover with seran-wrap to keep it moist/warm.

    **** After One Hour Rising ****
    11. Flour a surface.
    12. Punch the dough. Yes, punch it… all the air bubbles should deflate it.
    13. You can knead again if you want
    14. Cut the dough into four pieces
    15. Cut each piece into 3 pieces. This should give you 12 small balls of dough.
    16. Oil a muffin/cupcake pan, crisco works best , place one dough ball in each cup
    17. Place pan in a warm, draft-free place for 30-45 minutes.

    **** After 30-45 minutes rising ****
    **** Preheat oven to 425 ****
    18. When the oven gets to 425, Bake for 15 minutes. Rolls should swell about 3-5 times the size of the dough balls. They will start to brown after about 10 minutes, check every two minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
    19. Pop them out onto a wire rack to cool, or the bottoms will get slimy.
    20. Serve immediately with dinner, or as a snack. Careful they’re HOT!

    Note: Before putting in a bag, Let them cool completely (several hours at least) “stone cold”. They keep for 3 or 4 days in a plastic bag. 15-20 seconds in the microwave makes for a great snack.
