Don't Go With The Wave Of Society

➵ Hey, I get it. I know it is hard to stand up for what you believe in. I know it is hard to go against the wave of society. I know it is hard to say "no" when everyone around you is saying "yes." I have been there and I am still there. God doesn't call us to a life of popularity, but to a life of holiness. "Be ye holy, for I am holy." ( 1 Peter 1:16) I know it may get a little lonely when you choose not to do what most are. I know it might be painful when that person you liked breaks up with you because they don't have the same standards as you. I know the frustration you might feel when those around you seem to be excelling, while you just remain in the same place. I have been there. I get it , I really do, but, you know what?! You aren't missing out. If the "behind-the-scenes" played before your eyes, you would see that it isn't all fun and games. "Moses chose to suffer with the people of God, rather than enjoy sin for a season." (Hebrews 11:25) "For the one who sows in the flesh, will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life." (Galations 6:8)

God calls us to be more like Christ, not like other people, not even other Christians. He never said it would be easy, but worth it. All of the things you think you are missing out on, can't come close to spending eternity with the Father. You have to set in your mind what is most important to you. A relationship? A dream? A career? Or Pleasing the Lord God?! You have to set God on the throne of your heart and not base what you do on feelings, emotions, or on others, but on what God says in His Word. People don't have to get you. They don't have to agree with you. IT IS OK!! Because if the God of the universe is smiling down on you, then all is well my friend. 

In a world where popularity is praised, choose your purpose. Take a stand for godliness, even if that means being the odd man out. Stand for Truth no matter what the cost. Be different. Be rare. Be one that exudes the light of Christ. It is worth it my friend. ➵ 💕 #soulchaser
