Has someone or something caught your eye and you say to yourself…
“I want to look and be like that!”
hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.” (MSG)
So into the pursuit of impersonation you dive.
Trying to attain something you were never
Created for or to be.
It is a lie…you know…trying to be something you are not.
Colossians 3:9-10, “Do not lie to one another,
for you have put off the old self with its habits and have put on the new self.
This is the new being which God,
is constantly renewing in his own image,
in order to bring you to a full knowledge of himself.”
was it made me take an inventory of who I had become
and I made some very needed adjustments…
"Real contentment must come from within.
You and I cannot change or control the world around us,
but we can change and control the world within us."
What I saw in that reflection of me…
just had to go!
“Now that you have welcomed the Anointed One,
Jesus the Lord, into your lives,
continue to journey with Him and
allow Him to shape your lives.
Let your roots grow down deeply in Him,
and let Him build you up on a firm foundation.
Be strong in the faith, just as you were taught,
and always spill over with thankfulness.”
Be yourself…the You…God created you to be.
