Deceiver One-a-Day Friday  8/5/22

A life worthy

Do not deceive yourselves.  (1 Corinthians 3:18).

But we’re so good at that!

We do it all the time.

Well, at least I do.

Sometimes I think I’m strong when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m brave when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m smart when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m wise when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m Godly when God knows I’m not.

Of course, it works the other way, too.

Sometimes I think I’m weak when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m cowardly when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m stupid when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m foolish when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m lost when God knows I’m not.

Sometimes I think I’m worthless when God knows I’m not.

Either way you slice it, whether I’m high on myself or down on myself,

I’m deceiving myself

because I’m focused on…

you guessed it.

Myself

Beloved, when will I ever remember that I will never see Truth in the mirror over the bathroom sink?  I will only see it in the mirror of His word,

His heart,

His love.

Someday, Beloved.

Some glorious day.

Happy Friday.
