Dear Warrior {01-16-13}, a second entry


Over and over, God calls us His Bride. And in the Bible, when His followers set their hearts upon things that He hates, He calls them unfaithful. So (and I know you guys know this, but whatever) when I disobey Him, it's like I'm cheating on my husband.

Everytime I purposely exclude that girl from a conversation, it's breaking my vows to God. Everytime I watch that trashy TV show, it's a kiss on the devil's lips.

And I say I Love God?! How can I say I Love Him, when I keep doing the things He knows aren't good for me - and enjoying it, too! In those times, wouldn't it be more accurate to say, "I like You a lot, God, but I just don't Love You enough to stop cheating on You"?

Honestly, I've been wanting to post something like this for a long time. I haven't, though, because (and isn't this so human of me?) the aforementioned show is almost through its season, and I wanted to get to the end of the season, before I made a public announcement that I was going to work harder to rid my life of unclean things. Hypocrisy at its best, let me tell you.

I'm getting nauseous writing this, because I hate confessing, but these things need to be said.

I do all these things - flirt with the devil in all these ways - and then I say, "I just Love You, Jesus - here, let me pound another nail into Your wrist!"

Come on, Rachel. You know better.

If I want to be Love, like I've said so, so many times, then I have to get rid of these things. I have to stop muttering curses under my breath, when I'm ticked off. I have to get up and stop wasting time on Facebook. I have to stop saying Love and start being it.

Crazy Love. You don't really crazy-Love God, until you're willing to get rid of absolutely everything that strangles the relationship.

Pardon me, guys, I'm going to go deactivate my Pinterest account...

The End
