Daily Devotional – 9/13/11 “Christians are human too!”

Chile, I ain’t worried about your blessings because I’ve got my own! There is no need of me being jealous because I’m reaping the benefits of what I’ve sown.

I don’t have to be petty & battle in life’s fight, because God said he has my back & I’m walking in his sight!

Just don’t hate on me when I won’t join your party of pity, cause if you’re walking without God that’s just plain ole silly!

So I’ll be the names you call me and the things you say I do, because as long as I got God on my side he WILL see me through.

Please, don’t get me wrong I’m still human so my feelings sometimes get hurt. Especially when it’s so-called friends that’s dragging my name through the dirt.

But I shake it off and I HAVE to pray, because if I don’t I may just revert back to my old days.

Don’t think Christians don’t make mistakes and sometimes do wrong. Because it’s not always Sunday morning and we don’t always sing the same song.

Christians still put on pants the same as sinners do, so don’t be surprised when something unchristian like pass through my mouth, as it sometimes do.

Don’t hold me at a higher standard like I won’t sometimes fall or make a bad choice. But pray for me instead of bringing me down, every time I hear your voice.

Don’t act like you don’t drink, when it’s not water in my cup. But reach down to grab me when I fall, to pull me back up.

Don’t be quick to count me out when you see me wavering in this fight because as long as I repent & try to change, God will keep me in his sight.

I am not perfect by any means and neither are you. So don’t act like you are, when I am going through.

Let’s face the world together, tackle the obstacles in our way! Let’s be each other’s leaning post for when we have a bad day.

This place is hard enough without asking for trouble or strife, so why continue to let it consume your own life?

So, I’ll pray for you; my sister, my brother, my enemy, my friend! I’ll be praying for you until the very end.

That’s what God has commanded of me, so I will obey. I’ll be your leaning post, your prayer partner, and your friend until my dying day!

Deuteronomy 28: 1 – If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God
