Live it.

In light of today being Halloween, many office workers are dressed in suspicious garb today. I was praying a traffic cop would not stop my wife on her way to work and view her as a hooker. But she's actually disguised as Arivle, the under-endowed and unappreciated sister of Elvira, the princess of darkness. Being the splendid Bible teacher my wife is, she could best wear this outfit to address the topic of false impressions.

Are you sending false impressions today or are you what you appear? I've been under estimated by my appearance for most of my life but that doesn't bother me. I believe that what a person does proves what he believes and not what he says. The exception might be a dramatic performance. There we expect people to believe we're something we're not. The problem, however, is the tendency to become like that which we compare ourselves. For example, I had a stuttering problem when I was young but sang my way out of it. Example is Mel Tillis who only stuttered when he wasn't singing. But if I practice becoming Mel today, don't I risk the possibility of learning to stutter all over again?

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for eyesight, but thank You even more for discernment to override it.
