Blogtember Challenge Day 20: To Believe or Not to Believe

There are so many different things that people don’t know about their friends, family, people they work, etc… Today’s prompt is to share what we wish more people knew or believed. I believe that there are so many words in the world that make people think differently or even believe differently about things. There are competing voices and opinions, people who contradict everything you “think” you know or believe, or articles you read that will break you down from time and time again. Then when you are old enough to have your own opinion people around you start to give you their own opinions about your life choices. People today seem like they should always give advice even when you aren’t asking for it and always judge every move you make.  We have to remember to not listen to any of that. We must believe in ourselves, believe in one another, and the most important is to believe in Jesus.

I really wish that people would take the time to believe and to really know who Jesus is. There will be days that you don’t feel like you are enough and others when you feel like you could conquer the world. You might think I’m too fat, too skinny, too proud, too smart, too fit, too stylish… Remember especially on those hard challenge days when you hear something or are criticizing yourself that you were created for a reason. You weren’t that “accident” that kids might say you are. You as a creation from Jesus are here for a purpose. All of those imperfections that you point out were knitted together by God. He picked every inch of whom are today. Try not to judge yourself too much because you were created in HIS IMAGE alone!

You are God's treasure no matter what people think or say. Remember that Jesus helped you through all of those tangles and challenges in your life that you went through. He picked you out of the big treasure box to not only help you but to help Him. It was worth everything to him because He got to see you big smile at the end of the day. He got to witness all of those bumps in the road. He witnessed every single step you’ve taken or took to be that beautiful gem He picked out the treasure box.

God will always guide you, He will speak to you, and He will ALWAYS love you. He will help you no matter what and will make sure to put you on that everlasting path to heaven. Pour everything onto Jesus himself as he will pour out His loving grace on you!

“Nevertheless I am continually with you; you have taken hold of my right hand. With your counsel! You will guide me, and afterward receive me to glory.” Psalms 73:23-24
