Do It

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. ~ James 1:22-25 (NLT)

Hearing is good, it’s a good place to start

But what matters is what is driven by the heart

For once it is heard, does the action follow?

Or is the heart naive, and the spoken faith hollow?

If there is no action to back up the words you speak

Examine the heart to prevent a future that is bleak

Examine the motives to make sure they are pure

Examine the schedule so it makes room for more

For a heart that is in alignment with the words and the spirit

Speak the words, so the heart and the spirit can hear it

But it is also to remind the flesh to move

And to do it, even if unsure, just do it in your own groove

Do it when you’re not sure if the book will be a bestseller

Do it by writing one word at a time, even if you’re not the best speller

Do it when you don’t know how you will dig yourself out of debt

Do it by budgeting and sticking to it to launch your best financial self yet

Do it when fear overtakes you right before your speech

Do it by rehearsing repeatedly so the words are innate, and you don’t have to reach

Do it when hesitation tries to prevent you from making the pitch

Do it so they can realize you are the answer to their problem, a perfect fix

Do it when you have only family and friends who are following you

Do it so you can encourage someone else that if you can do it, they can too

Do it even when no one seems to be in your corner providing support

Do it when your half court energy has to get you to full court

Do it because you think about it daily and throughout the day

Do it because you know deep within your spirit, God has paved the way

Do it even if you must look yourself in the mirror and give yourself a pep talk

Do it and declare it daily out loud even if others around you tend to gawk

Do it when they tell you there is no way you will succeed

Do it when your haters have voices that are louder than those who believe

Do it when you’re searching for God to shine on you His perfect light

Do it because you refuse to give up on the fight

Do it because you know your future has the key so many others are looking for

Do it because you trust God will open new windows and create special doors

Do it walking in faith that your gifts will make room for you

Do it and recognize that God believes in you through and through

Do it because it is in the fiber of your very being

Do it in faith first, and then find momentum when you start seeing

Do it when faith fuels the results and people’s lives are blessed because of you

Do it in advance thanking God for standing firm to His word which is always true

Do it.
