DONT LET THE WORLD TELL YOU WHO TO BE

Saturday, March 10, 2018

we are surrounded by books, sayings, internet (particularly the internet) that try to fill us with things that the world say to replace God and what He says. for example the:

"BE YOURSELF" "FOLLOW YOUR HEART" "DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY"

and MAN. at a first glance, those things sound good, and usually do......but sometimes when things sound right and good, that doesn't always mean they are
we aren't supposed to be ourselves. CUZ GUYS. why would we do that?????? at our cores, without Jesus, we are lost sinners. without God, we are BROKEN and HOPELESS. why would be want to show the world that? so instead of "be yourself", BE JESUS

things effect us, probably more than we think. We let people change who we are, with or without us noticing. maybe someone says something to you about the way you talk, or act, or about the way you think or believe.

so. be the person God created you to be. don't let the world tell you who you are, what to be, and how to act. bc guys, thats like telling God He made a mistake (and He didn't, k)

what others say and think DOES NOT DEFINE US, but it's an easy thing to fall into (speaking from experience). so when you hear or read something, or if something says something to you -- before you do anything else -- ask yourself this: IS. IT. TRUE. ??????  << my mom always says to write whatever you are thinking about down, and go to the bible. cuz dude, if you want the truth, ITS THERE

  1. This post...*heart eyes*

    The heart is deceiving. We need to follow what God wants for us because it is so much better than anything we can ever come up with. <3

  9. So many amens! This needed to be said, because I find the line between individuality and the 'be yourself' movement gets a little blurry in Christian circles. Yes we are unique and have our own purpose in Him, but yes, we are still sinners in need of a saviour. So, thank you! Keep shining, girl! xx

    1. ohhh yes, so true! it's a fine line, really. because we ARE unique. so we should be us, in Jesus, then. I think the "be yourself" is just more...self centered behind it all? aw, thank you for commenting, Jess! <3

  10. YES YES YES PREACH

    I agree with this so much and I've thought about it so many times too. "Be you" is like, the most cliche and overused quote out there, but still, it's not entirely true. :P

    Also, your bio is so cute :) I love the "girl of all trades" part bc YES GIRL SAAAMEEE
