Don’t Settle

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

I have a reputation for being a snob. Not the kind you’re probably thinking. I’m nice to people, it’s “stuff” that I’m known to snub!

For example, just today….I made myself a bowl of cereal and as soon as I took the first bite, BLEK!! Yep, I’m a generic Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal snob! Why I even thought I could top the real thing–I do not even know myself sometimes!

Another way I’m a bit snobby is superficial relationships. Maybe you’ve heard the news about Kim Kardashian and her new hubby’s divorce? They’ve been “married” for 72 days and made millions because of, well…nothing other than self exploitation. Now, the love they pledged to one another is just another casualty (like so many other’s who do not take vows seriously) for the tabloids. What do you want to bet…..there’s more money to be made for Ms. K now that she’s ending her nuptials?

Seriously, I’m totally stuck up about pathetic ploys regarding loyalty. Especially when it comes to something sacred LIKE MARRIAGE!!! Grrr.

I can’t mention my snob weaknesses without mentioning GOOD SHEETS. I’m not the only one in my family with this fetish. My hubby and all three kids cannot stand the thought of itchy sheets. Call it snobby if you want, silky smooth sheets are straight from heaven! Thank you, Lord!

While I’m on my soapbox…it’s probably a good time to throw in that I ONLY use Dove bar bathsoap too. Oh and I like my toothbrush with Medium brissles, soft toothbrushes are so smushy. I need something tough. Call me George Washington. I don’t care.

Since I’ve been quite transparent here, I’ll end with a doozy. If you find this offensive–I’m so sorry! But this one cracks me up every cold weather season. The spacesuit. That’s what it looks like anyway. It comes from wearing sweatpants with Ugg (or pretend Ugg’s) boots. Not a fan, ya’ll! While I’m not the most savvy of fashion diva’s…I know when something looks like a spacesuit! Beautiful chicks everywhere: JUST SAY NO!! 😉

I suppose instead of calling me snobby, you could just say I’m terribly opinionated. I think we all have things in our life that we refuse to compromise on. My list of shallow nuisances isn’t really lifechanging. What I need to be most concerned with is my spiritual snobbiness. Am I living a life that honors God for the world to see? Do those around me know I’m a follower of Christ or do they see me as a whiner who finds fault in meaningless stuff?

Why do we settle? I can’t answer. But I will tell you….I’m trying really hard to do the hard things. I want to walk in faith and live outloud for Jesus. I don’t want to settle for less. I believe God has much more for me than that. He does for you too. What are you doing today that let’s people around you know YOU ARE HIS?

Have a great first day of November, friends. I’m off to a party! Since I’m home from school today (dr’s appt, repair tire day)….I’m blessed to play a part in the Lifeway Women’s Facebook party!!! It’s the big celebration of Beth Moore’s new book JAMES! Yeehaw! I’m squealing I’m so happy to party too!
