Rotten Tomatoes or Not???

What is wrong with this picture?

The photo above is a tomato that has been sitting out on the counter for at minimum 3+ weeks.. I don’t know how long it was in the store… Fresh Produce?? Nutritious?? Rotten Tomato or Not?? Just saying???

When I was growing up my folks made me pick through tomatoes daily because they would begin to rot so fast. They would keep boxes of green and ripening tomatoes in a cooler set at a special temperature to keep them from going bad.

Vine ripe tomatoes are special in the fact that they are picked off the vine when they are ripe. They should never be put through any wash or gasing to preserve them because this process will tear them up and with all of the talk today about healthy eating and what gasing and preservatives do to our bodies, I try to only buy fresh fruit and produce that have been spared this process.

So it is with our spiritual life. Not everything or everyone that looks good on the outside means they are healthy or nutritious on the inside.

Many times I’m so tempted to only let others see the “pretty” side of me and would be horrified to let some of the hidden secrets that are on my inside be revealed or digested by others. At times like this I retreat, isolate or just wind up sitting on a shelf or counter kind’ve like the tomato.

But, as a Christian I know God will help me using circumstances or others sort through my rotteness. If I am willing to allow Him to set me free, He delivers me from the pain and effects that these hidden sins have on me, and gently washes me. God is always faithful to help me ripen and mature just like those vine ripe tomatoes that I love so much!

A little About Marlene Marlene was raised in Sanford, Florida, the daughter of a 12th generation farmer and part Cherokee mother. Marlene first met Jesus at the tender age of six sitting in an orange tree in her backyard. This was when she first felt the Holy Spirit speaking to her about going to different nations and sharing the love and resurrection power of Jesus to others. She is mother to four sons, three grandchildren, and has many spiritual sons and daughters. Isaiah 54 is her life chapter. It was from that scripture God gave her two specific promises about her physical children, "All your children will be taught of the Lord and have great peace.”(Isaiah 54:13) and, “Your decendents will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” (Isaiah 54:3) Marlene follows the leading of the Lord and goes wherever and by whatever means God guides and provides. She ministers in meetings, retreats, slums, villages, churches and alongside others who are also called to share the good news, pray for the sick and hurting. She has a heart to equip and train the latter day church helping them to prepare for the harvest that is ripe. She is a mother and father to those who are broken, hurting and orphaned. This could be across the street or across the world. It could be in the jailhouse, at someone’s penthouse or simply a backyard BBQ. Wherever she is, her desire is to minister bringing hope and healing. She has a heart for the lost, backslidden and broken and Her desire is to love and know the Lord fully and unconditionally always growing in His grace, wisdom, and mercy; becoming the Lord's perfect bride, without spot or wrinkle. God created us to be beautiful. She wants you to know His love and become God’s treasure in and on the earth, maturing and growing to help others find their identity and place and to finish the race well. God searches today for those who will make Him their single desire, who will say with the Psalmist and King David that, “the Lord is the portion of mine inheritance” (Psalm 16:5). They will be His special possession because, “the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure” (Psalm 135:4). 850-661-6104 24/7 Prayer CinderellaReleased.Me cinderellareleased@gmail.com Webpage http://cinderellareleased.wixsite.com/cinderellareleased
