I always jokingly tell my friends that I'm ready to retire, win the lottery, or something where I can live my best life in financial abundance without actually having to "work."
Anyways, it's Monday and I went to Target on my lunch break because why not? Target is a slice of Heaven on Earth. I was grabbing a few items, and to my surprise I slipped on some water in the middle of the aisle. Luckily I didn't take a tumble because I have decent balance, but they definitely needed to mop the floor in that store. Seconds later, I thought of this meme and texted my friend like "girl I actually should've fell. I missed my financial blessing."
Lesson learned: Don't be too good to fall because you may miss your blessing.
Just kidding - really, but not really.
Anyways, I went back to work and less than 10 minutes of being at my desk I received the below alert from the Love Carter app. I literally LOL'd. What's the irony that I receive an alert about slipping less than an hour after I actually slipped?
At this moment, I figured it must be God trying to tell me something. Recently, I've felt like I've been slipping and not on my usual A-game when it comes to life and adulting. I've had to check myself more than a couple times within the past few months. We live in a culture where people put up facades and live by the saying "you won't ever catch me slippin.". But, we are human, things happen, and we do slip (literally and figuratively). And that is OK. Life goes on.
I realized that sometimes in life you have to slip and fall in order to receive a bigger blessing that God has for you.
So, yes, you may feel like you're slipping in some areas of life, and yes, you will definitely catch me slipping at some moments (if you were in Target today then you already did). But if you ever "catch me slippin'" just know, God has me slipping and sliding into a blessing.
