gahhhh homemade apple pie // also WAITING ON GOD (Jer 42-43)

basically I really love apple pie and then I've always wanted to make a legit butter crust, so I did. *laughs* AND GUYYYYYYSSS *flails* THE CRUST WAS YES YES YES. *gives you piece of the pie and walks away to start talking about waiting on God* 

ready? Yes. Ready.

I'm back in Jeremiah again in my Bible study - just reading along about the how the Jewish people were being captured by the Babylonian's. They had been warned, and did not heed. like..of course. blah. They then asked Jeremiah to go between them and God to ask Him if they should try to flee to Egypt.

they promised that they would do ask the Lord willed. Jeremiah then went and prayed, asking God for guidance.

I had been reading a lot of stuff like this for a while now (like I am 42 chapters in Jeremiah, right? lol) and then it goes "and it happened, after ten days that the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah." (verse 42:7)

*blink* *blink*

waiiiiiiittttttttttttttt 10 DAYS? *nods* 

can you just imagine the people of Israel waiting and waiting and waiting. like legit, this is a scary time. PEOPLE ARE COMING TO TAKE YOU CAPTIVE OR KILL YOU EVEN. maybe...hurry God???

but no. God has His own set of time. and even tho I think that is one of the toughest things for people to accept, it's the truth. You gotta wait on God, bc if you don't, you're doing what you want.  and. uhm. I wouldn't recommend that.

also, He said that they were to not go. *coughcough* THEY WENT ANYWAYS and forced Jeremiah to go with them. like bllllahhh

and can you guess the outcome? They were punished in Egypt. That's what happens when you directly go against God....

ON A HAPPIER NOTE: i'm reading sarah's book and GUYS IMMA DYING CUZ TRREEEYYYYYYYYY *flails* 

soooo are you waiting on God?
apple pie or cherry pie??

  1. YES I AM WAITING ON GOD!! it's weird because i asked him for patience recently and sunday night my pastor talked about PATIENCE LIKE COINCIDENCE NOOOOOOOO. moments like that i just can feel his presence. i'm like, um, dude, God exists. and he's my friend. <3 it's hard sometimes...but there are people in the Bible that had to deal with waiting. LIKE DANIEL OH MY GOODNESS. when he was in jail for, what seeeevvvveeeennnnn years i'm thinking?? Like THAT'S A LONG TIME. :O

    1. *tries to remember where I got the recipe* I think I did a hodgepodge thing?? I did my own apple pie filling and perhaps Martha Stewart's crust? Or was it the Pioneer Woman?? EEP SORRY :P *hands you photos to eat*

      Delete
    2. Okie okie. I'm going to look both those crust recipes up. Thank you! Because eeek it looks so tasty. (I should be able to make something up though, because I'm also pretty practiced with the hodgepodge thing :D)

      Delete
    3. ooh do so! Let me know if you make them, would you?!!? hahaha!! I hodgepodge so much - like my dad was on a walk with my little siblings and called me like "could you make some cocoa?". So I grabbed like 3 cocoa packets, then dumped some milk, more cocoa, powdered sugar, and creamer and was like WOAH IT ACTUALLY TASTES OK XD XD

      Delete
    4. Yeet! I shall definitely! (possibly might end up doing a blog post on it maybe) I'm hoping maybe to try it out tomorrow. :D
      Oh nice. Hodgepodging for the win. XD

  6. MMMMM... APPLE PIE YUM!! I agree, it is SO HARD to wait on God. Makes me realize how weak humans are without the strength of the Lord. I can't really remember the last time I had cherry pie, so I'll go with apple. BUT BROWNIES RULE OVER ALL! ;)

  9. Haha! We're reading in history about the Hebrews, and it just left off introducing Jeremiah and what he's going to do for the people! XD
    I just entered a really-big decision making thingie in my life....so I've needed to pray a lot and pray MORE and pray EVEN more. But that's the way it helps. Working through it with prayer. But I've kiiiiinda made up my mind. I guess....I'm waiting if God will close this door or not, and open another one. Or leave me right where I am. ;)
    Apple pie? Like it?! Pfffff, it's the best thing in the world. <3

    1. ooohhh really?! That will be fun!! I really liked learning more about Jeremiah. Like the thought of just reading it by myself was daunting, you know? Then with my Bible study, they give me pin points that I wouldn't have thought of. It's super helpful! I feel like I'm learning way more bc of it. yessss girl keep praying!! I'll pray for you too <333
      OMW YESSSSS so agreed *grins*

  11. THE PIE. I MUST HAVE SOME.

    I'm trying to learn the "waiting on God" thing too; and it's hard . . . but it'll be okay. It'll all be okay :-) After all, there's this thing called Eternity and it's a LOT more important than our little human time-scheme down here :-)

    Say, I don't think I've ever commented on your blog before . . . ? I just started following you after seeing your comments on Emma's blog and Goodreads. I'm excited to meet you! :-)

    1. *gives you pie bc you're right YOU DO NEED SOME*

      uhmmmm gosh so totally yes. Hard, and even more so when hear what you don't want to hear..but gosh that's life, right? OH YES ETERNITY IS WAYYY MORE IMPORTANT *makes me think of He Will Hold me Fast by the Getty's*

      hmm, I don't think so either!! ooohhh how cool. Do you have a blog? I can't remember.. and I do remember seeing you on Emma's blog tho!! Thanks for the comment girl, stick around XD

    2. No, I don't have a blog--I sometimes wish I did, but then I have graduate school and a ton of homework, and I don't think I would EVER have time to post :-/ I do write sometimes for this online magazine called "Femnista": https://femnista.wordpress.com/ It's less of a commitment cause I don't have to RUN it. Hahahahahaha :-)

      Indeed--I surely will stick around! :-D

  13. Oh I love baking apple pies! Apple is my favorite (especially the recipe I have, it has like caramel type texture it it.) *wants to make it now* ooh, and a butter crust? I may have to try that next time.

    And yes, it's so sad when you read how the people in the Bible acted, not that people today are much better. It is a good reminder to do what God says instead of doing your own thing. In church we read thru James, and one of the verses stated that "if you know what you are suppose to do, but don't do it, that is evil" so yeah, God definitely doesn't take it lightly.

  19. My family and I are definitely waiting on God.... the Lord tested His people in the wildnerness, and it didn't go well when they disobeyed and didn't trust in Him... so we're trusting and waiting. We're getting ready. Sometimes, it's scary (like when our neighbor's forest catches on fire and it's like very close to our backyard....), but God doesn't forget us. Yahweh does not forget any of us. He always hears us. ♥
    Also, I don't even like apple pie and that looks delicious. Lol. ALSO YOU'RE READING SARA'S BOOK AHH!!!! SO NICE. (well actually you finished but hey haha)
    God bless!
