Hear today’s Warm and Fuzz here!
* When I was still quite ill and off work recovering from not just the severe pancreatitis, but from the additional complications that were found or resulted during the process, I found an angel in waiting. I had an appointment with a Doctor I hadn’t met yet, I had just heard wonderful things about Dr. McCuin and her nurse, Theresa.
It was obvious that I was feeling the weight of the world in my life. I’d been sick and off work 8 months when I met these amazing ladies. As Dr. McCuin helped me get my head around what would be my fifth surgery in 8 months, she shared with me that she is a breast cancer Survivor! Now, I’m a huge fan of Survivor’s across the board. There is a special love and encouragement that comes from people who have managed their way down the ragged paths of life. Needless to say, I knew I was in good hands.
And then when I met Theresa, I felt like I had known her for years. She shared with me a Warm and Fuzzy that had just been played back on the air in my absence, called ” A Bigger Fying Pan.” She asked me if I remembered it, and I didn’t right off hand. She told me I should go back and read it again and embrace it. For times like these, what I was going through, what I have gone through and continue to face, she said, I just needed ” a bigger frying pan.”
So, with heart-felt thanks to Theresa for the reminder, here is that Warm and Fuzzy. And she’s right, it touched my heart and soul in just the way I needed. I hope it helps you today, as well.
God bless. ~ robynn
Two men went fishing. One man was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn’t. Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh. Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back.
The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing this man waste good fish. “Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?” he asked. The inexperienced fisherman replied, “I only have a small frying pan.”
Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, the big dreams, the big jobs and the big opportunities that God gives us. Our faith is too small. We laugh at that fisherman who didn’t figure out that all he needed was a bigger frying pan; yet how ready are we to increase the size of our faith?
Whether it’s a problem or a possibility, God will never give you anything bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk into anything God brings our way.
You can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13). Nothing is too big for God.
” Stop telling God you’ve got big problems. Tell your problems you’ve got a big God!”
