JANUARY PROMPT - SPIRITUAL BOREDOM REMEDY

"But be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." James 1:22

         Do you ever get bored with church or your spiritual life? I gave my life to Christ over fifty-five years ago, and it's been everything but boring. Knowledge without application eventually becomes boring - every time. If all you do is sit and listen, listen, and listen to the Word without ever taking steps to apply it to your life, you'll soon reach a place where you've heard, heard and heard so much of the Word, that you are sick of hearing it! Instead of anticipating what you might receive from the Lord, you'll think, "Oh no, another sermon." Do you find yourself roaming from church to church seeking someone, or something, to spice up your spiritual life? The problem is not the church, the Pastor, or the kind of preaching you are hearing. The problem is you. Write a poem using this attitude, or line of thinking.
