One of the ways restaurants attempt to improve business is through monthly or season specials. Whether its All You Can Eat, Buy One Get One Free or events like Crab Fest, these ads nudge families to go out to eat. As for me, I enjoy restaurants with all the fixings like my families favorite Chinese buffet. Although I don’t always practice self-control, my hunger is satisfied.
Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you, Jeremiah 32:17.
Beside food, there is another type of fixing which exists. Whether its a parent with a child, teacher with a student or spouse with a husband or wife, some become obsessed with fixing other people. While these intentions are good, some people like who they are. Thus, when you may mean well, many people don’t what to change or simply aren’t ready yet.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, Ephesians 3:20.
In the end, its probably better to let God do all the fixing. While you wait for those whom you love to come around, the best thing you can do is pray. This may involve doing prayer walks through a room, seeking the advice of others and fasting for a specific need. If you take the words of the apostle above, remember the power of God who is able to do far more abundantly than the human mind can imagine. Let the fixings begin.
