I mean I don’t mind eating left overs…I just didn’t want to eat meatloaf…again.
I’ve met some people who say they just don’t do leftovers but growing up in my house that was NOT an option…you ate leftovers or you didn’t eat at all.
Again I don’t mind eating leftovers…I just didn’t want meatloaf again.
It would have been the third day in a row! And by day I mean for both dinner and lunch all those days.
So, I made up in my mind…I AM NOT EATING MEATLOAF!
I decided that I would walk across the other side of campus to Pollo Tropical and completely dismiss the fact that I had packed my lunch.
Because I’m NOT eating meatloaf today!
Now, I’m not that deep and God apparently knows this because He finds the most awkward ways to speak to me.
I envy people who say “I was laying before the Lord and He spoke”
I’m always like “WOW”…He never speaks to me like that! Now in God’s defense, He probably does speak….but my “laying” before the Lord typically always ends the same way…in deep sleep…so unless He speaks in my dream, I don’t hear Him!
Anyways back to God speaking…
Would you believe me if I told you God told me to eat the meatloaf?!?!
I know it wasn’t me because I DID NOT WANT the meatloaf!
And it couldn’t be the devil because I can’t figure out for the life of me why the devil would tempt me to eat meatloaf! I mean I know he’s the great deceiver but if it was him telling me to eat the meatloaf then I’m sorry I was not only being deceived but confused too!
It wasn’t the devil, God told me to eat the meatloaf….let’s just be clear.
You see the part I left out is that I’m not the most disciplined person in the world. I rarely finish what I start out to do….I like to use the excuse of creativity. I’m a creative person and with that creativity comes constant excitement, constant change and constant ideas.
I call it creativity…God calls it undisciplined.
I made a personal commitment as it relates to my finances and my health of course God knew about these commitments because prayers had been offered up in requesting His help.
So, God in His creativity decided to help me with my commitments by instructing me to eat meatloaf…again….for the third day.
I really didn’t want to eat the meatloaf!
But I did because…
“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”- Hebrews 12:11
My prayer today is that you would remain disciplined and committed to that thing that may seem painful now, no matter what it involves, your health, your finances, your education or your relationships…just stick with it!
Eat the meatloaf!
And if you don’t believe God is telling you to eat the meatloaf then go and “lay” before the Lord, He may just speak :)
I said I’d never be that person…
