Burlap is good if you want to see through something,
Or if you want water to leak through,
But it’s not much good at keeping you warm
Or holding up when you’re working hard
Like when you’re on your knees all the time.
Denim, on the other hand, is sturdy and strong,
And even when it finally gets a hole in it
You can patch it with more denim
And the patch holds just fine.
Burlap, like doubt and unbelief
Doesn’t wear well
Or feel comfortable
Or look particularly fashionable
Denim, like faith
Is durable and lasting
Feels better the longer you wear it
And never, ever goes out of style.
This old notebook was falling apart at the seams
Made it useful again,
Which is what faith in the Living God does for us.
May God bless you with a denim faith
As you walk through this chapter in your life with Him!!
