Excerpt from “Pressing On” by Author Billy Charles Root
God does not snicker at our little jokes or laugh at the falling and tripping of others.
He doesn’t get wasted for a good time or to escape the harsh realities of a hard life.
He doesn’t blush at embarrassment or hide from ridicule.
He doesn’t hope the blond that just walked in is checking him out nor does he think he will die without a new car.
He doesn’t wait in line for the newest phone or Xbox or play station.
He doesn’t lust after any member of any sex.
He doesn’t hope to be rich or wish things were different.
He isn’t surprised by pregnancy.
He isn’t takin off guard by an increase in taxes.
He doesn’t watch himself workout in the mirror.
He has no need of any kind.
He doesn’t worry about what’s for dinner or what time it is.
