Big Britches

The sass! I don’t mean to be this way, but right now it’s flowing out of me like lava from a volcano. That’s kind of what my insides feel like. Lava.

The past week of life as been filled with twists and turns and heartache at every stop. I have tried to be strong and encouraging, but if I am honest, I feel drained and overwhelmed. I don’t know about you, but super hard life challenges bring about a flutter of emotions for me. When I am close to reaching what I feel as my limit, here comes Madam Sass. She’s big and bold and she almost never uses her filter. I am not proud of this, but I typically allow her to hang out far too long, rather than kicking her to the curb and telling her to zip it!

In the quiet moments of the day, when I was telling God how heavy my heart feels right now, He reminded me of this scripture:

Colossians 3:12 says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”

What a lovely picture! Oh how I want to put on kindness, compassion, and all those other qualities when I get dressed!

As I was wrapping up my quiet time this morning, I had to chuckle as I felt God saying, “Watch the sass madam, it’s not the best outfit you can put on for the day.” Yikes! I am pretty sure God is telling me I am getting a little too big for my britches! I’m going back into the closet to trade in my sass for a little humility, gentleness, and patience today! So remember, if Madam Sass shows up, send her right on back for some new clothes!
