Occasionally, my children give me a hard time about some of the posts I write. Their comments are always, “How did you come up with the story to relate this recipe to God’s Word?”
When writing a post, I love to relate the recipe or an ingredient in the recipe to learning something from the Word of God. I pray every morning that God will fill me with His Spirit and help me remember His Word during the day. Most days, I feel like I am cannot remember anything. However, God has a way of taking two things I love, which are cooking and His Word and helping me relate them. I find myself often thinking about food and dwelling on God’s Word during the day. The Bible says to meditate on God’s Word day and night: Psalm 1:2 and Joshua 1:8. I pray if God puts something on my heart no matter how silly it may seem, I will learn from it. I want people to not only get good recipes from recipesforourdailybread com but also get encouragement from the Word of God.
If you have not heard the song Do Everything by Steven Curtis Chapman, you can listen to it below. The song encourages us To Do Everything You Do To The Glory Of The One, Who Made You. It is a great song that talks about how no matter what we do, like matching socks and sweeping up Cheerios, God sees the big things and the little things that we do. All that matters is our heart and our attitude about whatever we are doing. By meditating on God, it changes our perspective of what is really important in life. I hope this song encourages you like it has encouraged me, to do all things because we love God. Yes, even housework!

My prayer is that you too will meditate on God’s Word. Start simply by thinking about the Bible verses you already know. God will help you to apply His Word to whatever else you are thinking about or doing during the day. By meditating on God’s Word, our focus will be on Doing Everything We Do To God’s Glory.
