Do you know what pleases Me,
Gets My attention, and turns My head?
Prove faith with action,
Not just with words you've said.
How can I know you have faith
If you don't give Me anything to see?
How can I know you believe what you say
If there's nothing to show Me?
Do you plan to get out of debt?
Do you expect to get well?
Act in faith, like it's going to happen.
How else can I tell?
What goal do you want accomplished?
What relationship to restore?
You can't sit around, and hope -
You always have to do more.
Whatever you're believing for,
There's a mountain in front of you;
You can't hope it away -
It moves by what you say and do.
Your voice creates your world.
That's how I made everything you see;
Then put action behind your words...
This is what pleases Me.
