Good morning. Happy Friday. I pray your week is going well. God is truly a wonder. I am so glad to be a child of God. Take time to give God thanks for who He is.
Practicing vs. Pretending
by: Nicole L. Ellis
To presume a false identify attempting to be real
Yet the lies that spew from ones lips
Are anything but ideal
With the ability to quote scriptures from the Good book
Yet their lives indicate they never really took a good look
A look at the words that require action
People who pretend lack the application of living for God’s satisfaction
An habitual act of turning words into a plan
It doesn’t mean one is perfect
Rather it means they took time to understand
They did more than just read the Word
Their life is an indication of what was applied, but first heard
Pretending Christians sell a false sense of perfection
Dictating verses that they don’t live by
Who cares what they say when their actions reveal they are a lie
Practicing Christians may fall and even stumble
Yet the consistent act of trying allows them to remain humble
They may mess up from time to time
But their diligence and repentance keeps them in favor with the Most High
Pretending won’t get you to heaven
It won’t even save your soul
Practicing God’s Accepted Word is the only avenue
That will lead you to live a life that is whole!
Have a blessed day!
