Cheesecake and Godly wisdom

Wouldn't it be great if every problem could be solved with cheesecake?

  • Are you sad?    You should eat cheesecake.
  • Are you overwhelmed?    You should eat cheesecake.
  • Are you dieting?    You should send me your cheesecake.

Did I say "problem"  earlier?

I meant "growth opportunity."

Following my cheesecake advice brings tremendous growth opportunity...generally in the hip and thigh area.

The Bible offers better solutions.

James 5:13-16 says:
  Are any of you suffering hardships?  

                                   You should pray.

  • Are any of you happy?   
                                  You should sing praises.

 Are any of you sick?   

                       You should call for the elders of the church to pray over you, anointing the name of the Lord.

 James adds,

"Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."

Yep, bible advice produces better results than a cheesecake binge. 

Even without chocolate sauce and strawberry toppings.

Since I'm currently dealing with multiple problems--er, growth opportunities--I'm diving into my bible. 

And a slice of blueberry cheesecake.
