Trust + Shrimp

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:5-6,8

All the time we are told to trust in The Lord, but how often does it really happen?

How many times have we actually confided in Him and asked for his help?

Probably not often enough, right?

I’m definitely guilty of this too. Sometimes I’ve asked my aunt’s cousin’s best friend’s daughter (not literally, but you understand) for advice before even thinking about the power of prayer.

This verse says it all- The Lord is my helper; why worry or be afraid? What can these ordinary humans who are daily hypocrites do against our great and mighty savior who never changes? If we put all our worries on God and trust in him, we should have nothing to worry about ourselves. That’s pretty hard to believe, I know- we don’t have to worry about anything?


That’s probably something we all need to remember.

Rosemary Sautéed Shrimp


This was originally going to be Shrimp and Butternut Squash Risotto, but…

The risotto came from a box. Yep. You should totally get some to go with the shrimp, though! It’s super yummy (better cold!) and you can find it in the organic section of Kroger.

serves 4
1 one pound bag of frozen shrimp, deveined, detailed, deshelled, defrosted, drained
1 tablespoon olive oil/chicken broth
1/4 cup onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
dried rosemary, to taste

1. Heat the oil or chicken broth on the stove in a pan at medium heat and add garlic and onions. Sauté for 2 minutes or so.
2. Add shrimp and cook for 5 minutes or until pink.
3. Sprinkle with rosemary.

Y’all know how I love rosemary! This also got a big seal of approval from my slightly (read: very) picky brother. Win!

Enjoy with yummy risotto- you’ll love it!
