Fine-sounding arguments abound within our society today. To top that off, we find that many choose to live by how they feel and leave the thinking to someone else. In an environment such as this, man’s character dwindles and he becomes less than a man.
It is the intent of Onions in My Ice Cream to show us a way to improve our spiritual health. Once we see that many situations, which, on the surface, appear to be unkind or unpleasant, are really a Trojan horse packed full of wisdom beyond our worldly reasoning. It helps us look at things from God’s divine viewpoint, enabling us to see what ultimately matters from an eternal perspective so that we can embrace our situation in a new light. Thus, in the renewal of our minds, we can identify how the world defines words such as love, truth, good and evil, compared to how the Word of God defines them. Romans 12:2 states: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then we will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Onions in My Ice Cream is anchored by two concrete foundational scriptural truths. First, “Without faith it is impossible to please God,” Hebrews 11:6 and secondly, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God,” Romans 10:17.
It is our prayer that as you read and ponder this book, you will begin to see God’s sovereign purpose do good and marvelous things in our lives, even while experiencing life’s trials and sufferings.
