Writing out Loud: Ironing Out The Wrinkles
So the next time someone wants to know
I just met this awesome guy BUT he’s married?
I need some extra cash, it’s okay to cheat on my taxes?
You are going to help support my growing “bootleg” business?
We love each other! What do you think about me “shacking” up with my “boo”?
I need extra pens for my Mary Kay consultants, so I just steal them from work?
Take a moment and look at Psalm 139! He knows everything, there’s no escaping God who even knows how much hair we have on our heads. My question is this? Will you have the courage, the unmitigated gall to say IT”S WRONG? Will you take the “iron” clad truth of God’s Word to help them “straighten” the wrinkles out? Most of us already know the difference between right and wrong. We feel like what God has asked us to do is just too darn hard and it will cramp our style. What if Jesus thought dying on a Cross would cramp His style? Unless you prefer walking around looking like a discombobulated paper bag, I suggest you allow God to “iron” out the wrinkles in your life. God accepts us the way we are, but He refuses to let us stay that way. We reflect His glory don’t you want to look your absolute best? Can you imagine how sharp you’re going to look from this point on all decked out (wrinkle–free of course) when you decide to clothe yourselves in His righteousness?
