This is not like frozen yogurt where your flavor for the day is determined by how it crosses your taste buds today. I can just lean on the wall every time I go into a frozen yogurt place with my family. I already know what time it is before any transaction can ever take place: it’s taste cups time. My daughter is the princess of taste cups time. It’s just part of the marketing put into what customers can do to make sure that they get to first confirm that happy feeling as they have now entered into, “yogurt selection time!” It’s not like fast foods where the discussion of what you want is almost confirmed way before you pull into the drive-up, walk up, or of course, curb side pick-up. The only difference is the marketing, as it is not cost effective by any means to allow the tasting of all the foods on the menu first before you place your order. We still do try to implement that business model when it comes to the Father, and his Will being done. Let’s just say for sake of discussion, because we don’t do argument, that at age eighteen with high school diploma in hand, you prepare to go into the world to make your mark on the world. Guess what is the first thing that is on most of our minds? No, it’s not the Will of God; but it is getting into the world’s store to enter into taste cups time. Listen, I was raised in the Church, as were most of my college friends, and the first thing that was on our minds was not necessarily about anything bad or evil, but I can remember having no flavor on our menu about the Will of God to even put into a taste cup for a shot at being selected first. And as I progressed into life, and into the so call more mature years, I still did not notice many menus out there with the Will of the Father flavor on it to even put into a taste cup. Oh, let’s put this waiver out there to just acknowledge the small percent of them who did have the Will of God flavor up first in their taste cup at age eighteen, and with diploma in-hand: there, we didn’t want to wrongly classify even the very few that are able to just walk up into the world’s store with no need of any taste cups to try out anything else. We are indeed grateful for you, and we do thank you for your full service to the Lord from before age eighteen on into young adult hood. And I do mean it sincerely because that is just a blessing, and amazing.
Now regardless, the Father is still bringing his Will to us at all times whether we have a taste cup for his “Will of the Father” flavor or not. There is an expectation by society, and I do believe even with the Father where the full weight of focus on doing the Will of the Father is not completely felt, and put on our shoulders at the younger ages. It can happen at that age, but for the most part, we are given a maturing up curve along with the natural learning curve to come of age and balance with what we are doing with our lives. I watch a few Christian Television shows where the founding Minster has had only one taste cup in his or her hand their entire life. Now they will be the first to tell you that even with the one taste cup in hand, that same cup has seen the light of other flavors trying to move in as the new flavor in the already used cup: this reminds me of how my great aunt would say, “that cup can still be used, just rinse it out.” At some point in our taste cups flavor process; before twenty, twenty, thirty, forty, or when ever our time comes, we will be offered the new flavor of the Will of the Father to taste. Most of the times the coming of that flavor cup will blind side us, and catch us off guard, but just remember an inkling of what’s happening at that time so you will jump into the flow with it: The Father Will Bring His Will, If It’s Your Will. I can remember back when the “Will of the Father Flavor,” poured my way into my existing cup. I was out at the park putting in the road work as I would regularly do, and even still do today: I just love to run. I was around twenty-five or so, with a young family, and employed by Xerox at the time. We also went to Church every Sunday, and had great friends with whom we traveled to college football games, played tennis, and spades with weekly: wasn’t we already in the Will of God since life seem to be going good? I guess not. Anyway, this Pastor ran up along side of me as I was running, and this got my attention because back in those days, no one just ran up along side of me as I would be moving; plus this guy looked to be a lot older, but he was going with me stride for stride. Too make a long story end at my point, this was how the flavor of the “Will of the Father” poured into my existing cup, and had me to rinse it out, while he washed it out, and later on after meeting that minister at his church service, filled my cup anew. This got me started on the path to where I would learn the Will of the Father for my life, and it would be changed for ever. We seldom pick the time to taste and see that his flavor is good, but when it comes to offer us a taste in our taste cup, if we are willing to taste it, the Father is willing to bring it. The taste of the flavor, “the Will of the Father,” caught up to me when I was just out for a run; and because I was willing, the Father was willing to have his Will run with me.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
