As I stand here prepping onions, garlic, and peppers for tomorrow's chili, I think how God similarly preps us.  He (if we allow Him) leads us and prepares us (and our hearts) for what is to come in our lives.  I remember almost 3 years ago having a restlessness in my former church; I wanted to do something with community service.  Because I was open, He lead me to be able to cook for the downtown disadvantaged/poor for over a year.  I have done the sole cooking for almost 11 months.  Now I feel He is prepping me again for something else....something that is down the road and around the bend, maybe over that mountain.  He is teaching me to listen and He preps me.
