Stirring Somethin Up

As excited as I was-

to first of all, get my bread and cheese yesterday, then share it,

It came in the presence of what two of my favorite people named depression.

“Why are you sad?”

Both my husband asked at the beginning of the day and my daughter closed the day asking.

I didn’t think I was sad.

But I have to take inventory when it comes in the mouth of two or three witnesses.

And This is how my mind works, taking inventory took me off into last nights meal dilemma.

I needed to stir something up!

Fast, when my hubby had a change of evening plans.

I had offered to make him the rice that I thought I had seen in the cabinet-

Only to find that it was an imposter.

Cauliflower rice is no rice at all!

Not the same.

So, he had to settle for the rice I had made previously that had as he said, turned out too mushy.

All of that led me to Matthew 7:1

““Refuse to be a critic full of bias toward others, and you will not be judged. For you’ll be judged by the same standard that you’ve used to judge others. The measurement you use on them will be used on you.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:1-2‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Here’s the connection, (if you aren’t on the same rabbit hole with me, lol….)

What I think I may have, in trying to serve someone the Truth about themselves,

I may not have together at all!

My so called rice may be cauliflower rice.

Same dang packaging!

But not the same.

And, I can say that others are just being picky, but I have to deal, with what’s really in my inventory-

Not just what I think I have!

I had to take a double look at Matthew 7.

That same standard, meant that when you criticize others, you will revert to that same standard.

Basically, I see snake handling.

You can grab that sucker by the tail, and you can point it at someone, but it’s headed back to bite YOU-

The one attached to it’s tail!

Depression came to Elijah when he saw himself at a higher standard than the rest of God’s people.

“I alone, am here to serve you,” he said.

“Not true,” God said-

“I have 7,000 who haven’t bowed to Baal.”

Depression comes from taking our eyes off of God and putting it on others, including our own selves.

“Why are you disquieted my soul?” David asked himself.

Hope IN GOD…he was reminded.

Don’t be surprised when your bread and cheese show up in the presence of your enemies.

Depression is an enemy to the Hope of God.

Eat up on what God has done and is in the midst of doing.

Begin to Thank God for all He Has provided and those enemies will start melting around you like the wax there are!
