The cheesecake in the coffee shop was two dollars.
Only two dollars.
It’s normally four, making it easier to “just say no”. I can get a whole pie at the grocery store for four dollars! This sudden cheesecake sale made temptation harder to resist. Only. two. dollars. They had cinnamon and pumpkin (my favs), and every piece behind the glass that separated us was calling my name.
Yes, little ones. I hear you, but I really shouldn’t.
Right when I decided to officially cut down on the sugar in my life.
On sale. Cheap.
Ordinary cheesecake might have been easy to refuse – have you ever tasted CHEESECAKE FACTORY cheesecake? If so, then you know the quandary I faced. (What a situation)
I did get plain ol coffee, no added sugar, to go with my slice of pumpkin with whipped cream on top. That counts for something, doesn’t it?
Then again … you have to wonder… why is the cheesecake on sale in the first place? Is it old? Did it come from the Island of Misfit Desserts?
I think it was probably left over holiday cheesecake that they needed to sell off. It had been in the freezer awhile and they finally were like, “We can’t keep this till next year — might as well sell it half price today and move it outta here.”
Yes, ma’am, I was in the right place at the right time.
There have been many other times I found myself in the right place just when I needed to be there. Those moments don’t just happen, ya know.
God orchestrates those “right place, right times” in our lives. If we will give Him our fears and dreads – and let go of needing to know everything all the time.
Release the strangle hold. You don’t have to control everything.
Guilty as charged. I have tendency to want to make things happen in my life myself – you know, be His little helper. My plans aren’t nearly as good as God’s plans for me.
His ways are above mine and I know He has nothing but the best in store for me.
He wants to see us succeed, big time. It’s true.
So relax and have a piece of cheesecake. Have faith. Trust. Let The Lord work His plan in your life today.
You’ll be amazed at what He will do.
