Gluten-free Choc-Mint Truffles

Needless to say, there was not one left on the buffet at the end of the night!

Psalm 104:1-35

Reference: v.31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
may the Lord rejoice in his works (TNIV Bible)

Explore: At a recent family function I offered to make some truffles to contribute to the dessert buffet. Due to allergy constraints, I needed to make them gluten-free and I was keen to present them in a more classy way than normal.

I did a number of trials and played with quantities of ground almonds, peppermint essence and different types of gluten-free biscuits.  To add to the presentation, at the end I dipped each truffle in melted chocolate so they were half covered.

I could not have been prouder of the end result. Not only were they taste-sensations, but they looked delicious too.

Needless to say, there was not one left on the buffet at the end of the night!

Application: My truffles did not change the course of history, but I was proud of the little creations I had poured my time and effort into. Imagine how much prouder God is of His creation – that which has changed the course of history!

Psalm 104 is a beautiful, poetic look at all that God has created. From the creatures of the sky and land, to all of nature cycling perfectly through its seasons, God’s creation is certainly remarkable.

We are also a part of God’s creation. He is proud of us and rejoices over us. We can never be worthy of His praise for what we do, but when we live in such a way that we reflect the Creator, then we can rejoice over ourselves as well.

Prayer: Creator of Heaven and Earth, may we live in such a way today that we are worthy of Your rejoicing. Amen.

In what way is God proud of you?
