30 Days of Heart: Day 18

Why is the poop emoji smiling?

I will tell you why, because his aim is to clog your toilet!  The second question is, why are we talking about poop?  I have an even better response to that.  First, let’s get some facts out of the way.

  1. Everyone poops (I know there are some exceptions to style but everyone gets rid of waste in some way)
  2. It is taboo to talk about pooping
  3. No one likes to clog the toilet, let alone someone else’s
  4. Everyone has a different type of toilet paper they like to use to clean poop (which can add to clogging the toilet)
  5. Don’t eat hard boiled eggs before a meeting

That last one was free, but good advice none the less.

seriously, why are we talking about poop?  it makes me uncomfortable!

I am going to keep it short and sweet today but wanted to make a very big point.  We hide what we think is dirty, and we don’t share what is going on inside of us even when it comes out.

Can we just be real and say when we have a clogged toilet? We can be spirituality clogged and drained. We can be mentally clogged and not know where to go or what to do.  We can be physically clogged, not just with poop but goals we have set for ourselves.

Just like you would get a plumber to unclog your toilet, find someone to help you in every area of your life. We are not alone in our struggles.  No matter how dirty you think it is or how bad you think it smells, it is time to unclog some toilets people!

I want to be and live free and I’m not going to live with a clogged toilet just because it might offend someone’s perception of me.  I struggle with worth, I struggle with leading, I struggle with following. I am learning to not be defined by what I have clogged but by what I have so far unclogged in my life and take it one day at a time.

I can’t get a new toilet because there is only one me, so I am learning to take the best care of me that I can and going forward, to minimize clogs.

Even the best toilets clog every now and then so do not live in shame when yours does.  Just ask for help to unclog it. We were never meant to go through life alone, in victory or failure.

I pray that you find some areas of your life that are clogged up and call a plumber/friend/pastor/etc to help fix it.

Please do not live with a clogged life just because you think it’s taboo to talk about.

I break that off of you now in Jesus name!
