Day 3: Not Holier Than Thou...


Am I

holier than thou

Because I wake up early and sit with God

Am I

holier than thou

Because I love reading and studying God's Word

The reason I do this is

is because

I am not

holier than thou

but because

I am a sinner

Saved by Grace

who needs

God every minute

or I would fall flat in my face.

It so happens that when I wake up,

before my alarm goes off in the dark hours of the morning,

I debate whether I want to get up or not,

to sit with God.

The thoughts that~

no one is making me,

I can sleep in,

it isn't a job,

feed my brain~

but then

these thoughts start to drip deep down into my spirit

and I am gently reminded

that I get to meet with God.

He is waiting for me in the dark living room

He is waiting for me to sit in His Presence

so that He can fill me with what I need

in that moment

that will spill out throughout my day.

Who am I ?

Not holier than thou

Who am I ?

A sinner saved by grace who is pressing forward to win the prize that is heavenward~

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14

And on my way there

I will choose to

Put Off

my independence,

thinking that I can do this thing

called life

on my own

and

Put On

Dependence on Him~

Who will be by my side to

be everything

that I am not able to be.

Who am I?

Who are you?

A sinner saved by grace~

Graced to be called His.

From Rags to Riches...
