Sometimes we cozy up to sin. We settle for less than God’s best in our life. It may look glazed over and beautiful, but the undercurrents breed putrid algae.
It’s only a matter of time before the remnants of compromised living rears its ugly head. It does. It always does.
Hold your life up to the standard of God’s living Word. He alone, causes the heart to leap with joy.
If you are constantly seeking the next thrill in your life, know that a thrill-seeking life will leave you emptier than when you began.
For you have forgot your first love. You have strayed from the One who can make your heart whole.
Remember that sin will always leave your soul wanting. It never satisfies and just like that piece of decadent, double-chocolate fudge delight, a slice of sin always leaves you wanting more. It eats away at your core and creates a cavity to welcome more sin.
The heart was meant to crave God. His Word provide streams of living water. You are meant to come to it daily, and find true refreshment.
I was reminded of this as my littlest was snuggling with his soft blue blanket, dampened with urine. He had wet through his diaper and laid on his blanket last night.
But he’s still carrying that blanket around with him, snuggling it close to his side.
Sin is like a urine-stained blanket. We get caught up in the cozy feel and soft touch and forget it smells putrid.
Psalm 1:1-3 AMP
