Today I decided to give Quorn Mince another go - I'm still not a huge fan of this stuff, but it is quick and easy to create healthy meals!
My latest attempt was a big improvement on the past but still a long way to go on seasoning (sort of mince and tatties but not quite!).
I guess that's a bit like faith sometimes... we persevere with the practices that we know are healthy, even when they don't 'taste' that great, even when they lack a little 'je ne sais quoi'.
Perhaps we all benefit from tweaking the seasoning, or trying new herbs/spices from time to time... and perhaps it's no bad thing to be reminded that faith, like anything worthwhile sometimes depends on dogged determination...
God of all creation,
It's easy to say that we need the feeding of scripture, prayer and worship;
But sometimes it's all dry and dull and tasteless.
Give us both the determination to stick at it when it seems unsatisfying
And the willingness to try new flavours, that just might turn out to be tasty!
