The past couple of weeks I have been attending this women’s bible study at our church. To be honest, in the past I have kinda avoided those settings because it always seemed “clicky” to me, everyone stuck to “their own crowd” and that was that. So if you didn’t have a “posse” then you felt left out. But the study description this go around is what drew me in:

“God’s faithfulness in the midst of our UNfaithfulness.”

BOOM! Hammer… nailed it!

The study was on the book of Hosea and I had no idea what God had in store for me.

For those of you who don’t know, the book of a Hosea is about a prophet who was told by God to marry this girl, Gomer. Hosea was also told that he would love Gomer but she would be unfaithful to him and that eventually she would become a street prostitute. Everything was fine, Hosea had three children with Gomer and right after that Gomer started to do just what was said of her, she became unfaithful and a street prostitute. Hosea loved her despite it and tried to help her to see what she was doing was not good for herself. At one time in the book, Hosea had to go to Gomers “owners” house, pay for his OWN wife so that she could come back to his home and live in safety. This story while sad is a story of grace, mercy, and relentless love in the face of unfaithfulness.

So far we are only 4 weeks into the study and have gotten through the first six chapters of Hosea. It has been great, God has been working on my heart BIG time! Here are a couple of things that I have been mulling over.

“The enemy (satan) says, you are without, you need. God says, you HAVE, you just need to receive”

This is a BIG lie that we tend to believe. You don’t have enough – buy a bigger house, a better car, more “stuff.” You’re not good enough – feelings of shame and unworthiness sneak in, affect your relationships and how you interact with other people. Not pretty enough? Change the way you look, strive after what society says is beautiful. He/She doesn’t love you enough – look for love in other places. The list could go on and the heartache continues. When all we need to do is turn to God who says, “I will give you what you need, you just need to receive those things from me in my timing. Open your arms!”

“The places where we are most broken are the places where hope and healing begin.”

This has been a big one for me. I have been holding onto a lot of anger and unforgiveness towards a person. The idea of “letting them off the hook” or not “helping them realize where they are wrong” makes my stomach churn. Everything in me wants to just chew them out because they deserve it and it’s what they’ve had coming for a while. But … yes that but! That unforgiveness is a place where my heart is broken and needs healing. I need to be able to forgive that person and love them despite the hurt they have caused. The unforgiveness I have needs hope and healing!

“When we feel threatened we trade our identity for something we are not and only find emptiness.”

This is a big one for women. When we as women start to feel threatened … aka she is a better mom, she does so much stuff for her family, she’s gorgeous, she has so many friends, her business is thriving and mine is not … we start to trade the identity God has given us trying to pursue what we THINK we NEED to pursue.

TO PUT IT SIMPLY.

My identity is “beloved daughter” and “international food blogger.” If I {krista} allow myself to believe that God does not love me because he doesn’t give me what I “want” I trade my identity and believe that I am no longer “beloved.” If I allow myself to think that other bloggers have better blogs, that they are reaching more people and I will never get to where they are at. I start to trade my identity and believe that maybe international food blogger is NOT the identity God has given me and start to become discouraged or even give up. All of those thoughts only leave me with emptiness, while the identity God has given me leaves me with life! Get it?

Don’t trade your identity for something else when you feel threatened, stand in the face of the trial and fight for what God has given you. Don’t hand it over!

Ok, moving on! Here’s what I have been working on with my stomach. Bahaha… like that smooth transition. I was pretty proud of that!

Oven Roasted Honey Soy Roasted Brussels Sprouts! They are sweet, salty and crispy. It’s like the candy of the vegetable world!

When it comes to sprouts I usually like to roast mine in the oven. What temperature and how long do I roast these brussels sprouts? Well, most of the time I go about 20 minutes at 400 degrees F because this allows the vegetables to bring out there natural sweetness and they get all crispy. It’s amazing!

Now here’s the best part. You can even make these ahead of time FREEZE them for later!

HOW TO FREEZE ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS:

  1. Follow the roasting instructions below.
  2. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.
  3. Place them in a freezer safe ziplock bag. (can be stored up to 12 months)
  4. To reheat place them in a saute pan with some oil or butter to reheat and serve!

I guarantee you’ll want these roasted brussels sprouts on repeat. They’ll definitely be the star of the show at your holiday dinner table!

Bon Appetit friends!

  1. GURL this post is EVERYTHING!! I seriously can’t wait until we finally settle down so I can get involved in a Bible Study. I LOVE the story of Gomer and I also get totally caught up in always needing more, or not thinking I am good enough. God is faithful in our unfaithfulness! AMEN sistah!
    Oh and these brussels? Ship me some and no one gets hurt. Pinned!

    1. Thanks so much girl! So glad to hear you were encouraged by it! I love the story of gomer too, have you ever redeeming love by francine rivers? Ah-mazing! Its a fiction book written about the book of hosea… major tear jerker!

      And yes, I do ship brussels. 🙂

  2. Whoa. You have no idea how much this hit home for me today! Such what I needed. I have been dealing with “not being enough”, between everything. Blog, friend, wife, daughter. And always trying to do more. In reality. I am enough. THANK YOU for reassuring me I am doing my best. I really love every time I come here, I read an amazing post on how to trust in God. Keep it up girl. It helps more than you know!

    And these brussels sprouts? My kinda dish! Pinned!

    1. You are sooo good enough Meg! You are incredibly strong! You have an amazing blog that showcases your beautiful photography and creativity in the kitchen don’t ever think otherwise! 🙂

      Seriously means the world that every time you come you leaved feeling encouraged, thats my heart. 🙂 That and shoving my face with yummy food.. hehe!

  3. Roasted is the only way I enjoy brussels sprouts. Love the sweetness added to these!

    Sounds like an awesome study. I’m currently in the middle of Gideon by Priscilla Shirer. And God is just showing up every time and tapping on my heart saying ‘that’s you girl. You need that. This what I’m teaching you.’ Phenomenal stuff! God is good!

    Happy Valentine’s Day friend!

    1. Oh.. I heard that is a good one too Melanie! So glad to hear God is speaking to you too, He is so good! 🙂 All we need to do is listen, he’s got lots to say. 🙂

    1. Um… I would love if you were here and we could go together! We’d have a blast together! So glad you were encouraged by the post and honored that you like my pics girl!

  4. What a fantastic post! I love it when the Lord does these things to just reach us RIGHT where we’re at! I also suffer from the whole ‘not enough’ feeling and self-talk, and it is so defeating and diminishes in our minds and heart how valued and loved we are by our God.

    Confession time – I’ve never actually tried a brussel sprout. This post makes me want to though.

    1. EXACTLY… its one of the things that the enemy loves to make us feel. For whatever reason we like to believe the worst in ourselves instead of the best. So glad you liked this post, means alot!

      Um… and you need to go the store now and buy brussels sprouts. Like … for realz! Go!

    I came across this recipe on pinterest and made it last week. It was SO good, my boyfriend and I loved them. I had bought a big bag of brussels sprouts from Costco so I ended up making them again later in the week. I ran out of honey so I used agave on the second batch and they were just as good. This will definitely be a staple go-to side dish recipe, thanks for sharing!

    1. Awesome! So glad to hear it Jessica! This is hands down my favorite way to make brussels sprouts, its my go to side to make when company comes. Glad the agave worked just as well as the honey! Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a note, means the world!
