I’m sure I’m not the only one who digs a good story. As Christians we are given the chance to share God’s story with others, though it doesn’t always happen this way. All too often, instead of sharing God’s story with the world, we tell someone else’s. Half the time, it’s not even the correct version. We just pass on what we hear and add a little tw Continue reading “Who’s story are you telling?”
“My worries are few because my blessings are many”
I’ve heard this phrase too many times to count but I’ve never actually believed it till about a month ago. So many of us get so focused on our worries, that we don’t take the time to look around us. Continue reading “From Worrier to Warrior”
Have you ever tried warm tea? Or warm coffee for the matter? It’s disgusting! Either you drink it hot or you drink it cold, but you don’t ever drink it warm. The same can be said about a christian Continue reading “The ‘Lukewarm’ Christian”
“Beauty is pain” I’ve heard this phrase everywhere while growing up. People always tell me that beauty comes with a price, a painful one. But at the same time, I was also told that “I’m beautiful just the way I am.” Which one of these are we supposed to believe? Which one is right?
‘Ugh, I did it again! Why do I keep doing this?’ This phrase has came across my mind way too many times to count. I’m sure that I’m not alone in this. I’m not the only one who makes mistakes, everyone does. Continue reading “In your mistakes”
Have you ever held something against someone? I’m sure that most of us have been in these kind of situations. Me, for one, I’ve been in so many of these situations that I started Continue reading “Moving On”
Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try, you can never fit in? There are some people who seem like they have a perfect life and are friends with everyone. While you’re on the outside looking in. Yeah that’s me. When I’m with a group of people, I feel like a sore thumb that sticks out. No matter how hard I try to connect with the people, they never seem to accept me. I’ve tried changing many different things about me so that I would be accepted by everyone. For example, I changed the way I talk. I use to never curse because I was taught growing up that it was a bad thing. But when I was with all my friends they all cursed and I felt like the odd-ball out because I was the only one who didn’t. So I started to curse a little now and then. Still I didn’t feel like I was accepted. So I changed the way I dressed. I started to wear clothes that I usually wasn’t allowed to wear. My parents would sometimes make me go change but this got me noticed by my friends. They were like “wow you look different!” This was exciting to me because they rarely noticed me but this only lasted for a short period of time. So then I changed the music I listened too. I use to only listen to christian music but it seemed like all of my friends listened to everything but that. I started to listening to their kind of music whenever I got the chance. Yet that didn’t help at all. What I got from this is that no matter how hard I tried to fit in, to be like them, I just couldn’t. While trying to fit in with my friends I started to stray away from God. Trying to fit in in this world, almost cost me my relationship with Christ. After feeling like I was being pushed away from my friends, I turned to God. Surprisingly he was still there all that time waiting for me to turn back to him. I learned that as a follower of Christ I wasn’t born to fit in. I was born to stand out. Nowadays, I don’t try to fit in because I know that God made me the way I am for a reason. I have a purpose here on earth and it isn’t to fit in. I was born to stand out and that’s exactly what I am going to do.
