The other night we broiled salmon for dinner. Three minutes per side. In olive oil and lemon and a little seasoning. And it was ready. It was very simple, yet very tasty.
That salmon worked alot harder in life swimming upstream than I did preparing it.
I’ve never been a big meat eater. I prefer chicken. Or fish. Salmon is my favorite. But I do like to swim!
Salmon is very good for you. Unlike the hot dogs of yesterday’s blog. It’s full of good things for you like protein, Omega-3 fatty acid, B12, Vitamin D, Selenium, and B3. If I had to swim upstream every day, I suppose I’d be full of good things, too.
Do you ever feel like you are swimming upstream? Struggling? Working harder at something than you need to do?
My advice would be to stop swimming. Lie on your back and float a moment. Relax into the hands of God. And pray about it. Ask for God’s direction.
Sometimes God allows struggles to refine us. He allows us to wallow in our own mire until we see the light and change our ways. To His way. And sometimes feeling as if we’re swimming upstream simply means we’re doing it right!
Love and laughter,
