I love cake!!! I made an angel food cake recently. Not just your ordinary angel food cake–a transformed angel food cake. Nothing fancy, but different nonetheless. I used to make it years ago, and had sort of forgotten about it. Then thanks to Rebekah the intern, and our “Cooking with Ms Dawn” lessons, it was back in my life once again.
Let’s cut to the chase-lol-I know you want to know how to make it. Here the thing. It’s super simple. Simply take a box angel food cake and a can of cherry pie filling–nothing else. Mix them together (it gets all pinky and foamy like), throw them in a 9×13 pan, bake for about 30 minutes and tah-dah! Cake!
A normal angel food cake transformed! I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it is. What started out as something really simple was transformed into something that is now simply better!
Now my little angel food cake keeps coming back to my mind. You see the topic of transformation has been coming up a lot lately in my life, and it makes me really thankful. Thankful to be reminded of Christ’s power to transform us. Thankful for the truth of Romans 12:2 which says,
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
When I allow God’s word to renew my mind, I am transformed. I am renewed and transformed as I allow truth to take the place of lies. Honesty to take the place of deception. Humility to take the place of pride. I am transformed when I choose to take the risk to trust God, take Him at His word and let Him take me and transform me into someone I could have never imagined.
Evan as God transforms me, I’m still a pretty simple girl. But with the power of Christ at work renewing my mind, I am simply better–more joyful, more patient, kinder. . .
Taste and See. . .the Lord is good!
