It’s about to get really serious here, y’all. You’re about to see how “holy roller” we really are here at Kids in the Sink. If you don’t like it, meh… sorry. Except not really because this stuff is real and it’s good stuff that many Christians don’t know.
Last night Bailey was afraid of the dark and I went into her room to find her crying and scared. When she finally caught her breath, she said, “Mama, pray for me so I don’t be scared.” The prayer that I prayed after that went something like this: “Lord, we pray that you would be with Bailey that she not be scared. We step into our rightful place of authority given to us by Jesus and we command all demonic forces that may be working here to cease your function. You are not welcome here. Bailey is covered in the blood of Jesus and you can not mess with her. You must bow down to Christ our Lord. We bind you and in Jesus’ name, command all demons of fear and anxiety and worry to GET OUT. We pray, Lord, that you would surround Bailey’s room with angels so that she could rest and go comfortably to sleep.” Then I laid with my baby for a few minutes, comforting her, and I left her room. I kid you not when I say that my child was asleep within minutes after I left.
This stuff is heavy. It sounds a little scary. It’s kind of uncomfortable to people not familiar with it. My advice? Get comfortable because it works. You see, we have a powerful authority given to us by Christ to make those demons do as we say. They MUST bow to Him because are blessed children of God! Isn’t that amazing news?! Get jazzed!
In Luke 10:19, Jesus tells us, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Yes! We win! Satan is a defeated foe and he’s mad about it. True story. So friends, use that authority that is rightfully yours. And thank Him for it. Thank Him for the answered prayers, even before they’re answered. Thank Him in advance and praise Him always.
You can also thank us for bringing you this delicious cookie pie. Make it and try not to eat it all in a day. Good luck. Have a blessed weekend!
Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips
- Brown the butter in a sauce pan by heating it over medium heat for several minutes, stirring occasionally, being careful not to let it burn. Once it starts to smell nutty and begins to turn brown, with brown bits forming on the bottom, immediately take it off the heat. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool until no longer warm to the touch.
- Preheat oven to 375˚ and grease a 10 inch springform pan OR a 9 inch cake pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Once butter is cool, whisk sugars into a large bowl with the butter. Whisk until smooth.
- Add egg and vanilla and whisk until thoroughly combined.
- Slowly begin to add dry ingredients to butter mixture and stir until a cohesive dough forms. Once it is completely mixed, stir in chocolate chips. It might be easier to use your hands for this step.
- Press dough into prepared pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until just starting to brown and the cookie is set. Serve warm with ice cream and chocolate syrup. Yum.
