When we sin we should think, "What's the sin beneath the sin?" -- Air 1
Jesus wants us to look inwardly, to see what is really in our heart. A married man can say he never committed adultery, yet he is lusts at women. So what is the sin beneath the sin? As Christians, we are called to not follow the things of this world. We must not want what the world wants, but what God wants in our lives. I believe it’s true that we sometimes rank our sins and justify which ones aren’t as bad, but at the end of the day we all have a little hypocrisy in our lives. It is amazing though that our God is a forgiving God. We can repent and turn away from our sins. He still loves us no matter how often we fail Him.
This past year I've become really insecure about my height. At least once each day someone makes a comment about how short I am (4'11 or 5 feet tall) like I don't already know. I try to brush it off, but what really makes it worse is that I’ve also noticed how big my legs are&my butt. I like wearing skinny jeans but i cant look at my legs in the mirror because of what i see.I'm pretty active so I dont see why I can't get thinner legs. I've never really told anyone how i felt about my appearance
I can relate to you. I’m around the same height, it happens all the time. Don’t focus on the negative of what people say. I know it’s hard, but I know you can overcome it. I don’t know if you have a relationship with God yet, but I believe that’s the cause of insecurity is a life without God. With God you will learn to accept yourself for who you are and not what others think of you. You learn to accept that you are you and no one else. You are beautiful, you are beautiful, you are beautiful, you are beautiful, you are beautiful, you are beautiful no matter what! (:
"To define what is beautiful is difficult because beauty is, as the old saying goes, in the eyes of the beholder. What is beautiful to us may be ugly to another. To regard something as beautiful it must meet our own definition and concept of beauty. The fact that beauty is an individual concept is understood clearly by all. However, many don’t realize that God’s concept of beauty also is His own. No one defines for God His concept of beauty. If a person is beautiful to God, he fits God’s concept of beauty." — Got Questions Ministries
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
I found your "Put God first bro" picture as my phone's wallpaper for I think half a year now haha. It's been a good conversation starter :) Found it on google, but just started following you. God bless.
Hello Jay! Oh wow, that’s interesting! I’m honored to have made a saying that was on your phone for half a year. It’s actually been up for about only half a year. I posted it in the beginning of September 2011, I believe. That’s awesome, praise God! It’s a great way to have the intention of having conversations with God involved in them! May God continue to bless you Jay.
Hey I just wanted to say that this blog is truly inspirational because you could be the only Bilble people will recieve. I lie how you apply your blog to our (younger) generation. You are truly amazing! God bless, love you!
All glory to God! God makes my blog amazing! May my blog continue to encourage you. May God continue to bless you abundantly. Love you too. You made my morning! It’s nice to hear encouraging words from fellow followers (: Thank you for that Vanessa! Be blessed and a blessing to those around you today!
Hey Christine, since this is pretty much the only way to tell you this. Anonymously, without any social repercussions, I decided this is the best way. I love you. Don't try and find me, it wont work. But I love you. I always have, and I always will.
Hello Anon. Oh wow, this is a first. Just a thought, if you really wanted to tell me you love me. Wouldn’t you say it with your name showing? I wonder who you are. Message me again, but with your name and I will respond privately. All you gotta do is ask to respond privately. Haha.
