My personal motivation to you
I am a Coward. I am weak. I am small. I can't do it. I never will be able to. What's the point anyways? What difference does it make? Who care's? I'm a nobody. What if they laugh at me? I want to be accepted. When can I be part of the cool crowd? Why can't I be respected?
You know you have these thoughts, these constant battles in your mind about whether or not you should or shouldn't do something. You usually end up caving against your morals. You tell yourself, "I know I shouldn't, but I'll be ______ if I do this. Everyone else does it. It will be fine. It will only be this once." You are the biggest deceiver to yourself. Sometimes you don't fall to the pure pressure of others, but you 'talk' yourself into it.
You fill your head with these lies and justify things to make yourself feel better. Think of it like this. You just changed your oil. The white rag you used is now filthy with splotches of oil, but you tell yourself, "It's really not that dirty. It could be worst. I can still see some white so it's okay." WHAT? Does that even make sense. It's like you saying black is white and trying to justify it, and then you falling for the deception and believing it! How can you be so deceived? You know what is right, yet you still choose the opposite choice.
Life is a wonderful blessing that God has given us. Life is meant to be lived in His glory. When you have surrendered your life to Christ and have been saved from the chains of sin, immediately you have given your life to Christ. If you are truly serious about committing your life to Christ, then you should choose His ways over your desires. The goal of a Christian is to bring God glory. Worship Him and bring others to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Bring honor to the Lord through the way you live. That is the job of a true Christian.
Are you living it out? Are you doing business with God? Do as His word tells us. Live how the word says to live. Fear God and keep His commandments. Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, soul, and mind. Love your neighbor as thyself. Preach the gospel.
God never promised an easy life so stop trying to take the easy way out! If you truly love the Lord, give your life to Him and choose His ways.
Hi, I am Michael Jaymes. I am only 18, but I've decided to start to write. I feel a burden on my heart that I have much to say, so why not share it? I want to be heard and I want to touch the lives of others. What is a better way than through the internet? I have made my life motto, "I just want to be a blessing." It's time for me to live it out.
