To finish up with my mandatory Montreal to-do list, here is another favourite, which is truly heavenly!
Biscotti from Heavenly Taste (East-end, RDP).
Having stopped there on our way to church, Mima shared her heart with us as we feasted on her biscotti which she graciously blessed us with.
Mima is one of my friends from Emmanuel Church. Her desire is to serve the Lord and do what He tells her to do. Believe it or not, Heavenly Taste is only a small part of what she believe He wants her to do. Giving all glory to God, she was telling us that her business is flourishing and expanding because of what God is doing.
So what is God doing? Mima has a dream of helping the poor and meeting the needs of those who are less fortunate. She didn’t know how this would come to pass until one day she had an idea of a cookie recipe. She began making these biscotti and people loved them to the point where people at her workplace were asking for orders. When the demand became too much, she decided it was time to do this fulltime. She has never looked back since, and today she is beginning to see how this God-given idea is giving her the means to bless others.
Deuteronomy 8:18 says, “But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.”
What’s more, using her front counter as a pulpit to preach from, Mima said she has led some clients and friends to Christ through her testimony of a Heavenly Taste. What a great testimony of God’s greatness and power.
As her business prospers, she is aiming to use it towards blessing the needy.
As you read the Bible, it is inevitable to notice that we serve a super-creative God! Whether it is the sunrise, the creation, or even a cookie, God’s creative nature is in us through the inspiration of His Holy Spirit. Let’s allow him to use us for His glory.
What ideas have you been holding on to in the recesses of your mind and heart? Maybe it’s time you trust God and step out and act on it.
Do you have a “success” story? I’d love for you to comment and share about it. Testify!
