Inside then Out

Out of the abundance of the heart we deliver our thoughts.
For the heart is the first place our actions are caught.
Love is in action not in verse or words we say.
But what we do for others along the way.

How many times have we promised and not done what we say.
But look and wait for another day?
We made a promise but not from the heart.
But did lip service that soon departs.

Don't say and not do because that's not what God would do.
But do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Use your heart and think from what's within.
Don't make a promise and turn it into sin.

For to tell  or promise and not in action do.
Can turn into a lie if it's not true.
Pray and ask God to help you make a promise come true.
For this is exactly what God would do.
