Lately, I’ve been having intense negotiations with God while standing in the checkout line of my favorites stores.
With my treasured conquests in hand, His gentle yet undeniable voice starts invading my thoughts:
“You know, you really should save more of your money.”
“Do you really need to buy another pair of shoes?”
“You already have something just like that hanging in your closet.”
“More makeup? What about that foundation you haven’t opened yet.”
Then, in the middle of Sephora, Zara, or especially in Target, I start debating with God as to why I should go through with my purchase.
