After God's Heart


So this has been on my mind for quite some time. Being in this dark world where good is bad, and bad is apparently “in” or normal, you struggle daily on how to be the christian you so desire. It’s not enough to tick “Christian” in that little box, or tweet “God is good” while you are planning on going to drop it like it’s hot in the club 5mins later. You know deep down in your heart that your “friends” (re-adjust those you permit to be around you because people should qualify to be in your life) are pushing you away from God, but you can’t mount up the courage to denounce your association because you don’t want to appear weak. As much as it’s important to know who you are as well as your limits, it is even more important to have a strong circle of committed friends around you who will GET ON THEIR FACE and pray with you like it is their lives being threatened. It is not enough to have them tweeting subliminals and planning on having someone beaten--as if it will change anything.

We should strive to follow God and not that guy that is willing to spend money at your request. Don’t be a gold digger. So he has all the money in the world.....okay? He is tired of chasing you (the person God has for you will not get tired of chasing you..best believe) so now you have started doing the chasing. You are “fighting” for what’s yours. Is it the wallet that’s yours or the owner of the wallet? Remember this: Prince Charming literally chased Cinderella, she never was caught stalking him. A lesson also in that: Cinderella NEVER had her breasts nearly tearing her shirt to get the attention of the Prince. Her goodies stayed where they needed to be--IN her clothes & the man that was meant for her still chased her. You don’t have any business being in skirts so short that you dare not drop anything on the ground because we both know it will be a mission to successfully pick it up without exposing all you possess. You want to be treated like royalty, but you look like a .....you get me. 

Maybe it is time to get a new set of friends, maybe it is time to pray for strength to be that Prov. 31 woman you so dearly want to be. Where you are going in life, you know pretty well that your “friends” have no business being around you. Friends are like elevators, they either take you up, or bring you down. Be around people that push you TOWARDS God, and not away. No, you cannot be in the club looking like everyone else and think you are going there to be the light. You are a walking Bible, being at certain places will confuse the readers no matter how valid your reasoning may be. Don’t be that girl that just goes with the flow of life; control your environment and lead others to God. Your life in itself should be a reflection of God on earth. 

You know how much time you spend with that new boyfriend? always texting ((hearts)) and writing his name on everything you can find and living for the moments you spend together? Cultivate the same silly, high-school relationship with God. He wants ALL your attention and heart. Refuse to be of this world. Shine that light, and shine it BRIGHT. God is too big to be your closet friend. 

James 4:7-10
So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

Proverbs 13:20

Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.

You are crazy, silly beautiful. Believe nothing else.
