This is a song to go with what I am posting about.. I have discovered it from youth and from there I fell in love with it.
Hi, I'm one of the Yaweh Sister's daughter's Gracie. I am in eighth grade, and my mom has been sick with the flu and isn't able to blog...so I am blogging for her. Latley I am always in a rush and always busy with doing everything else besides having time with God. I've noticed a very big change in the world that is kind of overwhelming. People just go on and on with their lives not even worrying that God could come back in a matter of seconds and they would be left here because they didn't do what they were supposed to do. I am feeling in my heart that we should come together as the Lord's children and seek his word. Every person is unique and we all have a chance to stand out and be different. I came home from youth group last night and really thought about what my leader talked about. People are so consumed in the world....worrying about what other people say and think about you. I know I feel that way sometimes... that I'm not pretty enough or skinny enough, or just what other people want me to be. I've taken these pictures of things that stand out from what the backround of the picture looks like. Notice the backround is boring, and the one standing out is the Christian. God is going to look at what's standing out not the ones in the backround. Maybe you know a person who is a very commited Christian, always doing what they were called to do... and you ask yourself why can't that be me? Why can't I be that person to shine and stand out to others and God? Well you can, everybody can. That's what God wants. He wants you to prove yourself through your actions and words. Show that you can be different. As the lord's children we are called to a new, holy standard. Instead of anger, jealousy, greed, hatred, and other sinful things.. we should practice compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Having God's grace instead of having another person's opinnion means a lot more... For he is the one we should all look up to. God uses the weak to lead the strong...I ask that through this week you take the time to do something that you think would make God smile, and would change the outcome it might've had if you hadn't done that something. Stand out.
In 1 John 2; 15-17 it says...Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. For everything of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world has its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
