Some of you reading this are old enough to remember hard times, shortages on cash, and limited menus. You lived on a food budget, which meant you sometimes saw the same dish more than once.

Although, due to your mum's incredible talent in the kitchen, it didn't always have the same face. It might show up as mashed potatoes and peas on Saturday, then shepherd's pie on Sunday. It might even come back a day or two later as something no one but your mum herself could recognise.

She'd chop it, dice it, mix in some cheese, splash Cream of Mushroom soup over the top, dress it up with some parsley, put it on a fancy tray, give it a French-sounding name and you thought it was something brand new!

Couldn't mum work miracles with leftovers? Well guess what? God works the same way too!

If you bring Him what you have left over, He can turn it into something you never would have thought possible. You just need to step away, turn it over to Him and let Him do His thing.

You didn't hover over your mum when she was reinventing your dinner. You were smart enough to know that everything would come out a lot better if you just kept your hands off it. This is not to say you should keep your hands entirely off your own life. You just need to step back far enough to let God work without hindrance.

When you do, the promise that "All things work together for good" suddenly becomes a reality in your life.
