God is in my orange...
Yes I said it...God is in my orange!!!
I bought two oranges for a $1 at the local grocer’s and dumped it in my book bag. I was supposed to eat it for lunch but never got a chance so I carried it home and back to the hospital the next day. Well again, I didn’t get a chance to eat it, but on my way home, I remembered them and peeled one. As I popped the first piece in my mouth, I shouted (in my head...of course) BLESS THE NAME OF THE LORD. HOW CAN THE WORLD SAY THERE IS NO GOD, AND THAT BY CHANCE THE WORLD WAS CREATED? GOD IS EVIDENT BY THIS ORANGE. The reason was that this orange was one of the juiciest, sweetest and yummiest orange I have ever tasted.
One of my weaknesses is that I can’t contain my emotions; you can see anger, sadness and happiness on my face. I try to work on this, but this was one moment when I was not ashamed to be that evident. God’s power was testified in my orange and it told of his beauty and majesty. The world wanted me to believe that we are here by evolution and things just spontaneously appeared without a plan but this orange told me different. It told me that God had a reason and a plan and this world was created by love. How can this orange be so sweet without God’s love?
For God so loved the world, that he gave…the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. (John 3:16, Gen1:29)
