The Slow Cooker is a staple in my home. I can fix something early, pop it in the pot, then have the whole day while the crock-pot is slowly doing a sterling job. I try to keep my priorities simple like my cooking method, I like to meditate on the Bible, pray and do what I can for folks around here. I know God doesn’t call us all to become missionaries (I should remember to pray for them and their work). Slow and steady, bird by bird, I get things done. Just like my crock-pot!
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! …2 Peter 3:8-14
