{Banana.Nut.Bread} “Half-Baked”

I LoVe banana-nut bread.  LoVe It!  I don’t think I would put it in my top 3 favorites, but it’s up there.  However, when it comes to waiting for it to come out of the oven it tops ALL.  I just can’t help but to keep opening up the oven door, checking to see if it is done.  Maybe it’s because it is one of the few things you don’t have to let cool before you take a bite of it.  Maybe it’s because it MeLtS in your mouth.  Whatever the reason, I know that waiting the 1 hour for it to bake is going to be excruciating for me.  I have even tried taking it out of the oven before the 1 hour of baking time is up and here is what I have ObSeRveD:

1.) Banana-nut bread batter is YuMmY.

2.) Banana-nut bread that is piping hot out of the oven is even MoRe YuMmY.

3.) “HaLf-BaKeD” banana nut bread is nasty.  The only one who is eating that is WaLteR, our chocolate lab.

So, what’s the point, you may be thinking.  Well, this reminds me of life and how from time to time we find ourself in circumstances and situations (A.K.A. TriAls) that seem more than we can handle.  It’s as if the heat and pressure are turned up and no matter what we do, how much we pray, or how adamently we plead with God to “GeT Me OuT oF HeRe!” we’re not coming of the “FiRe” until his work is complete.  The crazy thing is how God can use something we think is so terrible to perfect us.  How did He do that?!

When you find yourself in this uncomfortable place remember that God has the AmAziNg AbiLitY to “work All things for His good for those who love Him.”  Romans 8:28.

So, although you may be squirming, HaNg On Baby!  Its not forever.  It just feels like it.  :)
