GIRL, WHAT'S IN YOUR PURSE?
Most ladies carry a purse around with them, everywhere they go. The BIG question is, What's in your purse? Makeup, junk papers, receipts, money, a wallet, cellphone, tablet.. Sometimes a computer too and if you're anything like me they have snacks, etc. That sounds like a lot, right? Well, what happens when the purse begins to weigh down on your shoulder, it starts getting weak and a strap breaks? You switch purses and restart the cycle.
Imagine, the purse is your life, how much baggage and junk are you carrying with you? Heartbreaks, damaged friendships, self-doubt, guilt, or loneliness. Just like the stuff in your purse that transfers over to the new purse, those unhealed thoughts and feelings go along with you. Eventually, you begin to get weighed down and broken because you’re not strong enough to carry everything you’re holding on to.
It’s time to clean some of that junk out of our purse! Give those broken hearts, thoughts of fear and guilt to God! Until we face them head on and stop stuffing them in the bottom of the purse, we will never truly heal from them. Then we begin to pretend we’re happy, when we’re not. New junk may hide the old junk… But the reality is, it doesn’t get rid of it.
So, instead of stuffing mess on top of mess and never cleaning it up! Clean it up… Buy a new purse and leave the old mess with the old purse.. in the hands of God!
