Who are we trying to impress? Whose expectation are we trying to live up to in our life? If the answer is not God, then the end result will always be failure, disappointment, and tiredness of trying to keep up. That's a terrible way to live. God accepts us in our most broken and basic state, unconditionally. He asks us to live a life that is pleasing to Him, but is not there waiting and clocking every failure in attempts to discard or ridicule us, but to pick us up if we allow Him. Don't get caught up in ourselves, others and/or the earthly hype of things, but the goodness that God has placed in our hearts and the actions it leads to.
I love all things creative and writing thought-provoking posts. I began documenting #MyEarlyMorningThoughts about two years ago and have since received many requests to begin blogging and to continue posting about everyday life, growth, maturity, and SPIRITUAL concepts. Don't be shy, feel free to comment your life experiences and wisdom on any post.
