Free Thought Friday: March 18, 2016
Whoever you are and wherever you are in your life, try not to stress about what you don’t have or where you are not. I am not saying be complacent. What I am saying is if we do everything we know what to do day to day then that is all we can do. Only you and God know exactly what you are capable of. God knows more of what we are capable of then we ourselves know.
If you have a loud personality then trust God to use it because He created you. If you have a quiet personality then trust God to use it because He created you. There are ways we act that actually are not our true personality. I was shy and timid for a huge chunk of my life. As I got older I came to a place where that is not my true personality. I always felt off. Now that I am not shy and timid people that thought they knew me think I am pretending to be something I’m not. They are not my concern or my worry. This is me and I no longer make apologies for it. All I can tell them is talk to my Poppa God.
If others have issues with you being the real you, what does that have to do with you? We are to remain teachable and be accountable to God in all things. This takes discernment to have the right people in your life that will not put you down but encourage you and lift you up. These are the ones that hear and obey God to let you know when you are going off away from God’s will in your life as well as to let you know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be if you are.
When we all are and become exactly who God created us to be, our lives will be better. We will truly come to a place where we can show “where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom”.
