Jesus is changing me. How about you?

Fake It Till You Make It.

with 3 comments


Years ago I was told that we should pray.  As a duty, I prayed.  And in my innocence that was good enough.  But as the years have passed and the Lord has shown me a better way, I’ve learned to turn to prayer often, deeply, and with joy. 

What this shows me is something interesting.  You might have heard the phrase, “Fake it till you make it”.  There is some truth in that saying that can not be denied.  We struggle as babes in Christ to do what the mature tell us is best for us to do.  Then, one wonderful day, we find that we are doing with joy what seemed like a chore.  Isn’t this so with all the maturing in life?

So if you’re having troubles learning to turn to God, relax.  God knows your heart.  And there are times when He moves in to help you stand regardless your weakness or lack of understanding.  Just summon all the strength you have to obey what you know is right.  God will do the rest.  In fact it must be said that even the “faking” is supported by your God.  You never stand alone if you call on the name of Jesus.  Though it is possible to stand better, He has you in His Holy Hand.

By His Grace.

  1. This is very similar to the words of Wesley, “‛Preach faith till you have it; and them because you have it, you will preach faith.’” March 5, 1738.

    Grace and Peace.

    • The Way is clearly marked. But it seems we only notice the markers after we’ve passed them.
