Are YOU dumpster Diving???

This past Saturday we had a fellowship meeting with the Lacour's church in Cave Creek. During the service Bro. Lacour got up and was talking about NOT forgetting where God brought you from. And he was talking about how he STILL REMEMBERS where God brought him from. He STILL REMEMBERS as a child being so hungry that he would go dumpster diving for food. And I turned to the person next to me  and said, YEAH, I REMEMBER DOING THAT TOO!!! And the person sitting next to me said, WELL I STILL DO!!! So I started laughing and said...YEAH sometimes I still do too AND I don't need to either!!! (Okaaaaaay not FOR FOOD people!  Buuuut ya know sometimes ya just happen to come across a good item that is being thrown away! Like the dresser in my room, and the flowers hanging from my ceiling, my bookshelves...well you get the point...I'm a CHEAP GIRL!)
I really do remember though as a child going DUMPSTER DIVING as a family for food...we were THAT POOR growing up! We would pull up behind the Safeway grocery store and sometimes there would be all kinds of produce my mom would cook with, outdated bread that was still in the package, canned goods, Now you all know why i'm NOT scared of an EXPIRATION DATE...Hogwash I tell ya! If your hungry, YOUR HUNGRY!!! My mom always said, "Beggars can NOT be CHOOSERS!" You may be reading this right now and feeling appalled and DISGUSTED, but don't judge until you've been that poor that you didn't have a choice, till dumpster diving was your ONLY option.
Now if you go dumpster diving for food and you don't NEED to, you've got issues!!! Your probably never going to hear about Bill Gates going dumpster diving for food! Rich people don't NEED to go dumpster diving. But once you learn the trade its something you'll never forget and every once in a while you'll be like ME, whispering to my friend on Saturday, "Sometimes I STILL DO, and I DON'T NEED TOO EITHER!!!"
There was a time in each and everyone of our lives, when SPIRITUALLY we were SO DESPERATE that we would SPIRITUALLY go dumpster diving. A time where you found yourself a midst a HUGE mess in your life and you were scrounging around amongst all the muck of hopelessness and despair, TRYING to find something edible to fill the empty aching in your soul. Maybe I can find it on TV , a radio preacher an uplifting song, good deeds, anything to try and feed your soul and bring meaning to your life! We were DESPERATE!!! You found yourself like the Canaanite woman, begging for just the scraps. "And she said... yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." (Matthew 15:27)
We were POOR! We were begging for just THE CRUMBS that were leftover from the blessings of God's table. However, we have overcome that kind of a life. We were drafted into God's kingdom! We were called to a higher life! We're chosen people! Living for God is a BLESSED LIFE!!! We have been adopted in to God's family! We are no longer beggars!!! We are no longer orphans! We are children of God! We are THE KINGS KIDS! We get THE BEST! We are royalty!!! Yet I ask you this question,
Our daddy is RICH!!! There is a feast of SPIRITUAL goodness that is laid before! A table that is spread with the good things of God and yet we don't eat of it. This food that has been prepared for us, its THE BEST there is! Our father has THE FINEST of EVERYTHING prepared for us! No generic brands for daddies kids! Its NOT Mr. Pibb, its Dr. Pepper! Its THE REAL DEAL!!! Its THE GOOD STUFF!!!This feast is not some ghetto Chinese buffet or even the elite Golden Corral. Each plate that is served has been specifically cooked JUST FOR YOU!  Because, daddy knows just what each and every one of his children needs! And yet each plate you push away, your to busy, your to tired other things fill your belly and after just few bites your done.
Then all of the sudden life happens, problems, heartache and confusion come your way and suddenly your desperate. You don't know what to do, your hungry, your thirsty, OH if only you had eaten a little more of daddy's food. And you begin to search for it! You scrounge around for the leftovers that have been thrown into the trash because you wouldn't eat! Where's that scripture? Where's that preaching message? Your spiritually dumpster diving, AND YOU DON'T NEED TOO!!! Your RICH! Your the King's Kid! Your ROYALTY!!! You don't need to go dumpster diving,
King Saul was a SPIRITUAL DUMPSTER DIVER!!! "Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and inquire of her..." (1Samuel 28:7) The king allowed himself to come to a place in his life that he was spiritually so desperate that he would go and seek answers from God through a witch. He never would have gotten to this place of desperation if he would have just listened to the man of God in his life. But he wouldn't eat when it was laid before him.
How twisted was this man's mind that he actually believed he could get answers from God THROUGH A WITCH???  But that's what can happen when you allow yourself to get desperate. When you allow yourself to become so spiritually deprived. You don't eat and then you find yourself in the middle of life crisis, Spiritually dumpster diving, and you don't need too!!! There is a feast, THERE IS A FEAST, a fine, well prepared meal that is spread before you!

Are YOU dumpster diving??? You don't need too!!! There's a feast awaiting you! You say, "oh I'm too tired, i'll just sleep a little longer"...NO, Get up and EAT...Its time to PRAY! "Well I think I'll just skip reading my Bible today"...
NO! EAT!!!
Your gonna need it for the journey! "Ugh, I'm just in a rotten mood, I think I'll skip church today"....NO you HAVE TO GO! Its the biggest meal ever...Stuff your face and then some... EAT!!! Don't let the feast, the well prepared meals go to waste..You've got to EAT!!! There's PLENTY! You can have all you want and there will ALWAYS BE MORE!!! Daddy keeps the storehouses stocked, just ask for MORE, He'll NEVER RUN OUT!!! Its TIME to give up your dumpster diving...
"Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." (Psalm 23:5-6)

Mirror, mirror!!!

GPA wedding scholarship!!!!

Soooooo so the other day I was texting one of my friends that is engaged. We were going over all the typical wedding planning and stress that the brides-to-be feel. Then she texts me and says, at least my GPA is fully paying for my wedding dress.  When I read that I was like, WHAAAAT??? Her G.P.A. paid for her wedding dress???
NO ONE ever told me that there were BRIDE scholarships...
I KNEW I shoulda done better in school!!!
I mean REALLY, if I had known that my grades in high school were ACTUALLY going to pay for a wedding dress, I would have ditched less classes annnnnd I would have done my HOMEWORK more often, buuuuut NO ONE EVER TOLD...then it clicked OH she said her gpa...she was ABBREVIATING for GRANDPA...Her GRANDPA was paying for her wedding dress...NOT HER G.P.A....AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Buuuuuuuuut HEEEEEY, I ain't complainin about it!!! I HAAAATE THE SNOW!!! Its HARD ENOUGH driving, and I LOOOOVE the rain, buuuut I pretty much have mini panic attacks when I know that I'm going to have to DRIVE IN THE RAIN...I DO NOT EVER WANT TO THINK ABOUT DRIVING IN THE SNOW!!!! LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME AND EVERYONE ELSE IN THE its sooooo cold and slippery... I HATE SNOW!!!
ALTHO, I will say that I like tire tubing down the hills annnnnd WHEN the snow is falling all fluttery from the sky and you can ACTUALLY see the little snowflakes....and you catch them on your tongue and they flutter all over you and get caught in your eyelashes...I really think the right guy would fall for me if he could see me with snowflakes on my eyelashes...Lookin up at him all angelic like, and he's lookin down at me with adoration...then I PURRRRR at him... he falls to his knee in a proposal...and then I start LAUGHING AND SNORTING... and we live happily ever after...AWAY FROM THE SNOW...anyway, OTHER THAN THAT I HATE THE SNOW!!!

I'm NOT lucky!!!

I've been noticing A LOT lately that people are saying Good luck or we're sooooo lucky...annnnd I don't know about you all, buuuuuuut I remember a few times as a child being told that we do NOT say LUCK!!!  Luck is NOT of God!!! I looked up luck in the dictionary and this is what it says... 

Definition of LUCK : a force that brings good fortune or adversity b: the events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual : favoring chance; also: success <had great luck growing orchids> In the definition, it clearly states that LUCK comes from a FORCE...this is the Definition of FORCE used in this context:   (1): strength or energy exerted or brought to bear : cause of motion or change : active power <the forces of nature>


I believe that ANYTHING that is supernatural, that is a force or power, IF it is NOT of GOD, than it has to be of THE DEVIL!!! There are NO in betweens!!! From the very beginning, Lucifer has been trying to steal God's glory! Satan is STILL trying to creep in and steal the credit from God!!! Now he is trying to  sneak in the word LUCK into all our vocabulary!!!
And this is NOT directed at anyone imparticular, cuz I have heard NOT one but sooooo many people using this word lately!!! Talking about church and God..."We are soooo lucky!" "I was lucky to grow in the truth!" Or good luck with your endeavors...annnd I I've found myself on many occasions ABOUT to say it and then I tell myself, NO MARY!!! Don't do it!!!
BUUUUUUUUUUUUT...I don't want to fall into that pattern anymore... I thought what are ways that we can learn to TAKE this word out of our vocabulary??? Instead of luck ALWAYS say BLESSED...I was BLESSED to grow up in church!!! Instead of saying something like, well luckily, no one was hurt in the accident, say THANKFULLY, no one was hurt in the accident! Instead of saying, good luck on your test, say, GOD BLESS YOU on your test!!!
Don't let yourself fall into that sneaky trick of the devil!!! When Good things happen to us, when we are blessed, Lets GIVE GOD THE GLORY!!!
 It's NOT's GOD!!!

Have you NOTICED my Ethiopian purse????

Sooooooooo I was telling one of my friends recently...
Your thinking, really Mary, REALLY??? There's a story BEHIND YOUR PURSE!!! Yes REALLY people, REALLY!!!  Let's just start off by saying that it was NOT love at first sight!!! Hee, hee!!! I just reread MY FIRST memory with this purse and realized that I ACTUALLY LIED about how I REALLY felt about this purse!!! Read it HERE!!! Maybe I was jus tryin to convince myself back then...AHAHAHA!!!
Soooooo it was for my 29th birthday that Hanna gave this purse! Annnnnd I think before  she gave it to me she said that her dad had brought it back from Ethiopia and so she was giving it to me because it was from Africa and all that Jazz...
Sooooo when I first saw it I felt HORRIFIED because I honestly thought it was SUPER UGLY!!! buuuuut just for the record, NOT in like a HIDIEOUS way, just more like...BLAH...BORING...NOT MAR BEARISH!!! Lol but I used it for the next couple of days cuz she was there and I love Hanna!!! (Hope your NOT to shocked at my honesty if your reading this right now...LOVE YOU Hanna Banana!!! Purrrrr!!!)
Then I took the Ethiopian purse with me for the Heritage trip and it was pretty convient for traveling buuuut I didn't really want anyone to really SEE ME with it!!!! Lol I just felt like it was soooo NOT ME!!! It's plain and simple annnnd basically doesn't scream at you when you walk by! Haha!!! Plus the leather was super stiff... Buuuut I DID like the smell of the leather!!! 
So for my everyday purse I've always used a wristlet cuz I tend to lose stuff if it's not attached to me! Well had used my Ethiopian purse that summer for to teach my lesson at VBS I was pretending that was this world explorer and was pulling all kinds a stuff from my purse as part of the lesson and the kids thought it was SUPER COOL that it really was from Ethiopia!!!
Anywayz, I had forgot to switch back and was using my Ethiopian purse to go visit a friend! Weeeeelll when she saw my purse she was like, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT??? That is sooooo UGLY ANNNND IT IS SOOOO NOT YOU!!! Soooo I'm like, whateverrrrr!!!! A really good friend gave it to me and it's FROM Africa... annnnnd AFRICA IS ME!!! Sooooo there!!! 
Weeeeellll then I started using it as my travel purse because it's a crossover, it's super conviant! Weeeeelllll when I traveled with it I ALWAYS got compliments on it! Weeeeeelllll that really started changing the way I felt about it BECAAAAAAUSE compliments are pretty much my LOOOOVE LANGUAGE!!! 😍BaHaHa 
Plus it was sooooo NOT me that it really did draw more attention too it annnnnd ATTENTION is my SECOND LOVE Language!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA 
Another one of my friends said it like this, its not you because it doesn't scream at you when you walk by, buuuut then because it was soooo NOT ME, it ACTUALLY DID SCREAM AT EVERYONE when they walked by!!!! If that makes any sense at all?!?!
Sooooo anywayz, I started using it all the time for traveling and then when I would return I started waiting longer and longer to switch back to my everyday black glitter wristlet! Then I'm not sure when buuuut I think when I returned from the bay in May I just never switched back to my wristlet! Annnnd now it's my EVERYDAY purse that I use all week long then I switch to a fancy purse on Sundays!!!!
Buuuuut yeah, I totally LOOOOOOVE IT NOW!!! The leather is aging nicely! It's like all soft and bendable!!! I loooove the fact that it's a crossover annnnnd if I ever feel it needs more color I can always jus spill some food on it!!! Ahahaha!!! It really is perfect for me cuz if you spill something on it, it doesn't really stain! You just wipe it off and the leather just absorbs up the rest... Like it eats it or something!!! Lol
It's MY MOST highly complimented purse of all time!!! Everyone always thinks it's sooo cool when I say it's from Ethiopia!! There is this girl one girl I know that has all these expensive purses BUUUUT she like LOVES my purse!!! She'll compliment me on it, then a few months later, I know I've already told you this buuuut I LOVE YOUR PURSE!!! She's like, if you ever decide... I'm like NOPE!!! Anyone can get a Burberry, buuuuuut...
 my Ethiopian purse is a RARITY!!!! 
compliment me on this purse!!!
 Annnnd really it doesn't get ANY COOLER than when a man of God likes your purse!!! Annnnnd WHAT girl can say that random preachers ever complimented her on a Kate Spade or Louie-whatever purse...I highly doubt it!!! Jus sayin...BAHAHAHA!!!
         THE END!!!

NOT just waiting...

About a month or so ago, I brought a woman and her kids with me to church and on the way to church she was telling me all about how the devil had been fighting her ALL night to come to church and all this drama that was going on in her life and how she KNOWS its just the devil! AND she just knows that there is gonna be a word for her today in the service and that's why the devil been fightin her to come, cuz he doesn't want her to HEAR THE WORD!!!
Well we get to the church, ON TIME FOR PRAYER and she says she's gotta get her kids ready, potty etc...she'll be in the church in a lil bit. Well prayer's over and church is about to start and I'm like, where in the world are they??? Finally church does start, i'm on the platform for praise singing the whole song service she isn't coming in, the whole time I'm just looking out into the audience for her to come in and I'm thinkin in my mind, IF you want your word from God, your going to HAVE TO ACTUALLY get YO SELF in to THE SANCTUARY sistah!!! 
She did FINALLY make it into the church in time for the preaching, and I HOPE she got her word from God! However, it really got me to thinking about how we so often in life are just waitin for our word from God, and yet we just sit there, if you really want a word from God, you need to be getting yourself IN to the word of God!!!
How often do we say God talk to me! But we don't pray! God speak to me! But we don't listen to the preacher! God work on me! But we don't put ourselves on the potters wheel! God use me! But we don't have time to get involved! God bless me! But we're not willing to make any sacrifices! God make me more like you! But we ignore the spirit of conviction! God give us revival! But we're not able to make it to any extra church services. God give us souls! But we never invite people to church! God let me be a witness! But we never tell people about what he's done in our lives.
Its NOT enough to just SPEAK in faith, we've got to take some ACTIONS in faith!!! I just recently heard a story about two farmers. They both in faith, prayed for God to send rain so they could plant seeds in their field. However, one prayed to God for rain, and then just waited for the rain to come. The other prayed for rain and then went and PREPARED his field for the seeds he was going to plant after God sent the rain he had prayed for!!!
When we pray to God for something, we need to take some personal ACTIONS in faith to prepare ourselves for what we asked for. Not just, God give me this, PULEEEEEZE!!! But God, I know I've asked you for this, now WHAT do I need to do to PREPARE myself for what I've just asked you for. I emphasize that I am NOT talking about YOU trying to answer your own request to God, but YOU taking what ever actions in faith you can to prepare for God answering your request!
 Bro. Lackey preached an amazing message at Conqueror's Conference called, "God Given Dreams!" At the very end he was talking about how God can give us a dream or a promise, BUT if we EVER take ourselves off the wheel while we're waiting, we can LOSE the God given dream! If God gives you a promise about something, that doesn't just give you an excuse to sit on the pews, you NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!! "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise." (Hebrews 10:36)
Its getting beyond just telling God, I want, I want, I WANT! And getting to the point of saying Ok God I already told you I WANT THIS, now what do I NEED TO DO for this to come to pass??? You KNOW what I want God, but I don't want to just sit like a lump on log, I'm ready to take some actions, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO???  Its NOT just WAITING for a word! Its NOT just speaking in faith, its WALKING in faith, its DOING in faith, its WORKING in faith!!!
"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." (James 1:22)

Happy Sunday!!!

This morning before church I ran to the store and while I was in there I overheard the conversation between two men. As they said goodbye to each other, the one said to the other, "well have a good day today!" And the one said, "I will, IF my teams win!" Annnnd I thought to myself, HOW SAD!!! Its sad that the way your day goes HAS to be depended on something as superficial as a GAME!!!
  I thought to myself, I'm GOING TO HAVE A GOOOOOOD DAY TODAY!!! You know WHY?!!?!?
