Biscuits, Old Farmer, Amen

Biscuits, Old Farmer, Amen

A NEW Pastor was attending a men’s breakfast in a rural area. 

She asked one of the impressive older farmers in attendance to say grace that morning.

After all, were seated, the older farmer began:

“Lord, I hate buttermilk."

The Pastor opened one eye and wondered to herself where this was going.

Then the farmer loudly proclaimed, “Lord, I hate lard.”

Now the Pastor was worried.

However without missing a beat, the farmer prayed on,

“And Lord, you know I don’t care much for raw white flour.”

Just as the Pastor was ready to stand and stop everything, the farmer continued,

“But Lord, when You mix ‘em all together and bake ‘em up, I do love fresh biscuits.

So Lord, when things come up we don’t like, when life gets hard, when we just don’t understand what You are sayin' to us, we just need to relax and wait ‘till you're done mixin’, and probably Lord, it will be somethin' even better than biscuits.

I thoroughly enjoyed your blog today especially the farmers prayer. I keep telling friends who try to hold back tears after a death in the family or friend. Dont hold back those tears soon you will see they are happy tears like the tears that start to flow when you hear a special song or hymn.

I really so loved teading the farmer’s prayer. Just life and all that it brings, we have to continue to stand in faith, trusting and believing God is moving on our behalf even when we can’t see or feel it. But, pray, relax and release it, and when God’s finished it will be like the farmer said "it will be somethin’ even better than biscuits. Love it!☺
