Fall is my favorite time of year. To me fall starts on September 1st, and that’s the day I start putting up my fall decorations. I enjoy everything about fall – the cooler weather, Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins, and fall clothes.
With the changing season coming up, there is also some exciting changes I’ll be making to Cooking Up Faith. It feels like I have written about everything with this blog – when I first started I wrote a lot about being in the midst of toddlers and nap times. I moved on to devotionals and then tried Bible studies. I’ve always incorporated recipes too, as I love food. :)
I feel like I finally know what the purpose is for Cooking Up Faith – to encourage women to deepen their relationship with God through Scripture. Right now more than ever we need more truth and less opinions. We need to be at one with God and constantly on His side and by His side, instead of choosing worldly sides.
The closest way to be with God is through His Word and prayer. There is a new kind of peace and comfort that comes over you when you read scripture. You make better decisions, and think before you speak when scripture is swirling in your head. Your perception of everything changes when you walk in scripture.
I want this kind of faith. A faith rooted in truth, in scripture, in the grace of Jesus. I want to live my life based more on faith (truth) and less on feelings (lies).
I want to deepen my relationship with God by walking in His Words, and I want the purpose of Cooking Up Faith to do the same.
“Your Daily Bread”
Starting September 4th I will be posting “Your Daily Bread,” scriptures, which will be a scripture to reflect, pray, and walk in for that day. These scriptures will carry themes through the seasons, and since I love fall, you can anticipate lots of fall pictures to go with the scriptures of the day throughout the fall!
If you read our post, “The Meaning of Your Life,” you’ll remember that abiding in Christ through scripture and prayer is one of our purposes in life. These daily scriptures will help you abide in Christ as you reflect and meditate on specific scripture throughout each day.
If you have already subscribed by email you will receive these directly to your email inbox. “Your Daily Bread” scriptures will be shared throughout the week.
I will also continue with occasional devotionals – more in depth thoughts over scriptures, truths, and faces from the Bible.
New recipes will still be shared here at Cooking Up Faith. I look forward to sharing some new seasonal recipes with you!
I’m looking forward to September – not just for the fall clothes and pumpkins, but to share scripture with you, and walk in God’s Word!
We’ll start our collection of September Scriptures on September 4th!
