Christ-like and Christ aren’t the same.
Godly is not a substitute for God.
My brain knows this, yet somehow I keep
Forgetting to remind my heart.
I look up to people who reflect God,
Try to be like them,
Try to imitate them,
But am I looking at God?
Why has it become my
Habit to replace God with godly people?
Is it because they are flawed?
It is because I can relate?
This must stop!
Anything that draws my heart
Closer to God is good, right?
Not when it replaces Him.
I have made idols of the people around me.
I have lied to myself,
Told myself that if I focused
On being more like those around me,
I no longer need to focus on God.
I am quick to forget that it is God in them
That I am so attracted to!
Why do I continue to put man on
My God is the king of everything!
My God is the perfect creator!
He knows all and sees all!
No idol can boast that!
Lord, keep my heart bowed only to you!
