Growing up, I always thought our next door neighbors were RICH because they had an old rusty galvanized POOL. This pool had HOLES all over it, stuffed with pieces of old towels to keep the water from leaking out.
One summer, my cousin was staying with us. He was “big-boned and retained water”. His husky jeans were so tight, they looked like skinny jeans on a rapper!
When we found out that our neighbors were out of town, he suggested HOPPING their fence and going swimming.
It was risky business. But, it was July and we were SO HOT!
So, we sneaked into that pool and had a great time!
Suddenly, my cousin shouted, “CANNONBALL!!!”
He was JUMPING from the deck into the water. When all his “bigness” hit the water with a BOOM, most of the water splashed out of the pool and the towels BLEW OUT from the holes!
We were in BIG TROUBLE! But, I was having too much fun with my cousin to worry!
God can drop BIG blessings on us, out of NOWHERE! We’re just living life and… BOOM! Out of the blue, our debt is canceled, someone gives us a new car, or we get promoted!
He wants us to be more like children, just living carefree, enjoying our lives, and EXPECTING His favor and BIG “cannonball blessings” … BOOM!!!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
