So, you want Big Breasts? Okay….Done! 

Now, you all know I’m transparent. This is actually funny…but please read with an open mind and receive the message. 
I remember when I was 7th and 8th grade, I wanted big breasts…..mainly because my best friend had them. (Catch that.) So I started putting tissue in my bra. That continued until my freshmen year in college….when my breast started getting full and becoming what I THOUGHT they should be. 

I enjoyed them, but eventually, I had to get a breast reduction (requested by me to my doctor) in November of 2012. 

Wait a minute?

So I begged for big breasts, I got them, and then requested to have surgery to go back to small breasts? Crazy right?? Very!!!

God will give us the things we think we want just to show us that it’s not what we need. I wanted big breasts. I got them, but they came along with pains I couldn’t bear- back problems, shirts that wouldn’t button, unwanted attention, etc. 
Now, let’s go back. I told you all I wanted big breasts….mainly because my best friend had them. See, we want “stuff” because we see other folks with it, but we don’t see the pains, the sacrifices, the tears, the blood, the sweat, and the time they’ve put in. 
We see their GLORY, but we don’t know their story. 
Now, this is much deeper than breasts. Don’t miss the message being carnal- minded. My whole point is- Be content with who you are, where you are, and what you have. Although your RIGHT NOW may not be all that you’ve hoped for, but it’s yours. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have or what you wished you had, focus on growing in God. True contentment and fulfillment isn’t found in “stuff” or people. It’s found in Jesus. Until you can be content…in whatever state you’re in…you’ll always feel like you need more…or even less…to be happy.

The Word even supports this. 

“Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What are you begging God for? What is it that you want that you’ve convinced yourself that you need? Are you really open to God’s desires for your life or just your own?

Hmmmmmmm

Cabinets and Drawers

I’ve been awake since about 3:50 this morning praying and spending time in God’s presence. When I finished, I started cleaning and organizing the “stuff” in my cabinets and drawers. As I was cleaning and organizing, I realized that a lot of the contents in my drawers and cabinets were not being used, had expired, had collected dust, out of place, or just simply taking up space- CLUTTER! It’s easy to end up with a whole lot of nothing when it’s out of our sight- kept away in drawers and cabinets. (Catch that.)There was even something under my cabinet in my bathroom that I had when I first moved to Belzoni, 5+years ago. I’m in Memphis now. I’ve carried it to three new places. Shame on me. Lol 
As I started throwing stuff away, the HOLY SPIRIT reminded me how important is it to be conscious of what we keep in our hearts and minds as well. See, people can’t see our hearts and mind, so we can easily pick and choose what we want others to see. We dress things up, store away the things we don’t want others to see or things we don’t want to deal with at the moment, and display the “pretty picture.”…but see, what happens is we end up with a lot of clutter that soon pollutes so many other areas of our lives. That clutter can also prevent God from moving in our lives and doing something new. 

Today, take a moment to get quiet before God and pay attention to what is happening in your heart and in your mind. Are you holding on to unforgiveness? Do you need healing? What do you need deliverance from? Do you need to release something or even someone? What kind of thoughts are you thinking? 

Clean out “YOUR” cabinets and drawers. Protect your “space” and make sure the contents there are God-approved and not expired, “dusty”, out of order, or simply taking up unnecessary space. ❤️
