Blending In // Style Diary

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16

Conforming to the world and its ideal is easy, and even makes us feel good. (Even though that good feeling is short lived). It's easy to swim with the flow of the river, but not so easy to swim against it. Have you ever walked outside facing the strong wind? It doesn't feel so nice. In the same way, living for the world is easy, yet living for God doesn't feel so easy at times. We get discouraged, mocked, humiliated, you name it. We are also battling our own weak human flesh, so it's easier for us to just live like the world. But God doesn't intend for us to do so. He tells us to let our light shine before others. We must live and stand for God no matter what. Whether we feel uncomfortable, angry, humiliated, or desperate, we must live for Him alone.  After all, if we live for God, everything will be okay for us at the end anyways. Remember, we are the only bible some people will read today.  God never intended for you to blend in. He created YOU, a most wonderful and unique person to shine His light and stand out. Will you let your light shine today?
