I don't like to use the word "hate"....but don't you just dislike it ever so much when you have to be corrected....reprimanded...."called out"?!?!?! I didn't like it as a child....and think I like it even less as an adult 'cause after all....well, I'm an adult and I should know better!!!
So....what's up this time, are you asking?
Yep....you guessed it....God is having to put me in the corner....take away my toys....stick me in time out.....make me stand at the chalkboard with my nose in a ring!!!
Did you get a visual of all of that?!?!
Did you laugh?!?!?
A couple of weeks ago, Ms. Patrice at Everyday Ruralty asked a question on here weekly meme
One of the questions was about watching soap operas. When I worked full-time (this topic keeps coming up for some reason)....the ladies in the office watched The Young and The Restless every day at lunchtime. I live just down the hill from where I worked, so I came home for lunch a lot, but sometimes I would take my lunch and watch it with them. Well, you know it doesn't take much to get hooked on those things....okay, maybe not for some weaklings like me. When I quit work and was home most days, I would turn it on out of habit....a very bad habit, I might add. I still watch it occasionally, maybe once or twice a week....but....a lot of days I'm not at the house and I'll get home right as it's going off....and every time that happens I feel in my spirit that God worked it out that way for a reason. He does not want me filling my mind and heart with that garbage any longer. He stopped me from listening to secular music several years ago (please know if you do and God ain't got on your case about it, then that's great....
....but He won't allow me to do it)!!!
So....here I am....having to be transparent once again to y'all!!!
I've come to a conclusion....I've gotta be the most disobedient, dysfunctional, distressing CHRISTian in the State of Tennessee....okay, on the entire planet!!!
(don't you love when you can describe something in 3's using the same first letter?!?!...;-)
I was reminded of this scripture as God touched my heart about always filling my mind with "such things"!!! I like that the little sign looks like it was written by a child....
....'cause God has to get on that level with me quite often....
....even at my age!!!
And....for the record....as I typed this....I was home when the show was on....and I didn't turn on my TV!!! But....before you start giving me any accolades.....ask me about this time next month how I'm doing!!!
And, I mean it....PLEASE do....hold me accountable....
....'cause Sweet Friends, I need all the help I can get!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
