Go hard or go home! It’s easy to try and barely make it by, c+ is passing right? As long as I can make the room look clean then I’m good. I mean, nobody knows that all I did was stuff everything under the bed and in the closet.
In every thing we do we have the power and capability to knock it out the park. Whether it be a school report, a presentation, washing the dishes, even a hair do. We were all made in God’s image so that means we were all made in excellence.
But what about this Christian thing? does it get a pass? Can we look good for the people but behind close doors our lives are just as ratchet as can be? One thing with God is He loves us no matter what but He also wants a real relationship with us. We cant hide things in our lives and think that God does not see it. He sits high and looks low and he cant be fooled.
I lived that life of faking in front of others but living a totally different ratchet life behind closed doors, all because I wanted PEOPLE to see me as this perfect young girl who did no wrong. But my relationship with God was non existent. Now my prayer every day is ” Lord, If im going to be a christian, let be be an effective one, a real one”. Its real easy for me to get on this blog, get on social media and post encouraging things, post scriptures, but if I don’t have the power to back it up then who am I really fooling?
It’s the presence of God in my life that causes someone else life to be changed and that power comes by desiring to please God and striving to live according to His standards. When I post something, pray for someone, speak life into someone, I desire for chains to fall off of them, for curses to be broken, for real change to happen in their hearts. But I can only achieve that if my life practices what i’m teaching. I cant cast a devil out with a devil. When the devil sees that we faking he laughs and says ” Ha, I know God dont dwell with you, you cant stop me” ( What I think he may be saying lol )
So be determined today that if you are going to do it, then do it! Work on being the best Christian, singer writer, dancer, encouraging person that you can possibly be, one with power and not an illusion of power.
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.” – 2 Tim 3:1-5
“It’s judgment time for God’s own family. We’re first in line. If it starts with us, think what it’s going to be like for those who refuse God’s Message! If good people barely make it,What’s in store for the bad?” – 1 Peter 4:18
