bra shopping

This post is mainly for me.  (as I suppose all of them should be!)  Because it's going to be about boobs and God.  yes, I said it, in the same sentence (or sentence fragment).

Against the advise of my doctor, I went bra shopping today.  I did not plan on buying, just trying - and trust me, I didn't buy.  I practically had a meltdown in the dressing room.  The horror.  One perfect boob, one perfect mess of a boob.

This week's sunday school lesson was on Psalm 37:1-11.  We picked it apart verse by verse, broke it down into a chart of Do's and Don'ts and Promises/Principles.  It's quite easy to do and it's amazing what you see when you do this.  What jumped out at me and slapped me in the face was that 3 times it says "do not fret".  Does God know us or what?  I fretted all week last week.  Frankly, I've fretted for the past 3 weeks.  What a colossal waste of time.  Plus verse 8 says "do not fret - it only leads to evil" - yup.  And repeatedly it says to trust in the Lord, commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him, be still before the Lord, wait patiently for Him...  Ahem.  paying attention, Stephanie?

And then last night, during bible time with the boys, it's focus verse was Philippians 4:6-7.  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."   And let's not stop there, go on to verse 8!  "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -  if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."  My mind has been focusing on the wrong things.

I swear I'm the most rebellious Christian I know!

Well, I have to go get the boys at school - but that's the main gist of what I've been thinking about.  Do you thinks it's possible for me to not fret between now and my doctor's visit tomorrow?  We'll see if I set aside my rebellion!

I fret all the time. Very anxious person here. And then I always find out it's for nothing. If I'd listen to HIM I'd be doing a lot better than I am.
