I'm going to a baptist church down the street nowdays, my kids love it, I'm knowing in advance I'm not going to "fit in" very much. But I am doing better these days......................................not sure if "better" is a bad thing or a good thing really though????????? I guess it's a good thing, fitting in, fitting in some in the body of christ..........it's good. I don't need to be a "cool kid" either. Yep it's enough for me to just go to a few church shin digs every month, and just be a part of things I recogn.
----------- I go to instagram accounts of a few "cool kids" one in particular I fantasize being like her............I totally couldn't do that though it's better I keep on wearing modest attire!!!!!!!!! Though one can get popular with the less attire photo's 1 Corinthians 6:9 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,". I recogn if you sacrifice your "classiness" just to get some extra followers on the instagram that probably is a "type" of abuse of yourself with mankind. Cause anytime you sacrifice you image someway...................that is abuse isn't it??????????
There's clean companies these days making money to clean up people's reputations online these days, so important that is out there. But even if your reputation didn't mean nothin to you, cause you didn't want a high paying job...........still if you "cheapen" yourself with certain photo's I do deem that as a type of "abuse" people do to themselves with mankind.
-------------------- so it's not worth it to be a "cool kid" Luke 16:15 "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is a abomination in the sight of God."
Below is well a bit of verse 1 and 2 of "Footsteps of Jesus" words by Mary B.C. Slade, music by Asa B. Everett......................................(and I cut out the part at the end with me, everything don't have to be about me, and according the elder of the apostolic christian church of america my blog is covered in sin because I talk about my life to much on it...........but my husband pointed out I'm a human being and as thus I should be expected to talk some about myself..........but definately I agree with the idea of myself decreasing and jesus increasing John 3:30 "He must increase, but I must decrease." I am these days continually making a effort and I think even in the past, somedays ya I might've gone to far, but then again
I ain't perfect yet
Matthew 10:22 "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved." Don't give up out there, I AIN'T GOING TO DRAW BACK OR GIVE UP!
-------------- I was really close to those people, they did feel like family to me. I can't force something to happen, if they are determined to hate me, they gonna hate me.
