Why do people feel the need to share everything on social media?
I am active on many social media. Facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr and wordpress. There are many times that I have deactivated my account, I just felt that I need it.
Those were the days where I found myself posting too much to the extent that it has become my diary. Don’t get me wrong, posting is okay but I think is better to be mysterious sometimes. Not just to show that ‘this is who I am, this is what I want, this is what I do’. We share about so much of who we are until we forgot, is this really who we are? Or we just making ourselves look good to the public?
We are easily affected by the likes or the followers that we have. We become so opinionated about things and issues that we really do not understand. We tend to complain about everything, the traffic, the government and in the worst case, about our parents over the internet. We show so much of ourselves that there’s nothing left for us to be kept.
We trick ourselves into thinking people care about all the things about us. Talk about it to your friend or much better to your family. Pray about your problems or concerns. Talk to God about what’s in your heart.
Things to ponder : Does it matter? Does it change the situation? Does it encourage people?
I was just really thinking, how did my father pursue my mother. What’s her favorite food, where is she, what’s more about her. Surely, mother didn’t post it over the internet. I think is better to be mysterious sometimes.
To someone who think they are never good enough,
We live in a world where it’s the society that will tell us what is right or wrong. We let the world define us and how are we gonna act in different situations. It’s suffocating, sometimes. They said just be who you are but in the end they will judge you. They said you must accept on another but in the end people will try to change you into something that seems like “accepted.” They said you must do what everyone else is doing to be somebody. You are born to stand out and be extraordinary not only to be like them. A life well lived is a life not trying to please all people around you. Never rely only on human standards or else you’ll think small about yourself. These labels that they give you doesn’t say who you are. You are what God says you are. You are beautiful. You are loved. You are favored. You can do it. Don’t live a life that you’re not happy to live on. Remember that 2000 years ago someone died for you, for that life. Enjoy it.
Enjoy your season.
This is the topic when I received Jesus Christ in my heart. That was February 13, 2012. It thrills my heart everytime I here those phrases. Youth only comes once in a lifetime, it’s an opportunity that once you missed, you can never take it back. One of the reasons we miss opportunities is that we fail to see them for what they are. ‘Enjoying your season’ has been defined in many other mundane things in this world, often we called it Y.O.L.O. According 1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. It doesn’t mean do the wildest and out of control things that most of the youth are doing.
You are waiting at the same time.
Waiting will always be the least thing we’ll do. Admit it, we hate waiting. And as the years pass by, I’m finally beginning to realize it’s in these seasons of waiting and being still before God and in waiting does some of his greatest work.
Waiting is an opportunity to know God better through spending time in his Word. It’s in waiting that I get to know God’s heart more intimately and finally begin to realize he is my life.
Waiting is an opportunity to know yourself better. There are so many things that God has revealed to me through waiting. God restores my hope, dreams and vision and deepens my character. I was reminder how significant I am in His eyes.
Waiting is an opportunity to know others better. This is the when I have all my time to know many people, to listen to their stories, to lead, to minister, to share and to be with them. Why? Because this is the season that you think of self less.
Who loves God before he even knows that you exist. A man who falls to his knees, with tears in his eyes and hands held high, without a care to the world watching him. A man who knows that God is the best foundation in your relationship. A relationship that brings you each other closer to Him.
The man who loves Jesus will respect you. He’ll pursue you and treasure you. He won’t pressure you or control you, but gently walk beside you and lead you. He will appreciate you as the gift and beauty you are, and remind you of it every day. He will worship with you. He’ll pray for you and pray with you. He will lead you with strong hands, stand up when you can’t, but remind you that only God can satisfy. (repost)
Look around and think of a person that is most hated. Maybe because of his/her attitude or the way he/she reacts on situations. We tend to dislike a person easily by their actions, simply because we are human, we have feelings. Have you ever wonder how that person becomes like that? How the “monster” was build in their hearts? What made them hold that strong ego inside of them? How you love the unlovable?
There was this person who irritates me, I am not easily irritated on the way a person acts but it came to the point that she tested my patience. She embarrassed me, finding all my simple mistakes, shouting, too proud of herself and so many unwanted attitude that she has. How you love the unlovable?
Until I knew her story. Her story made her strong that no one can try to break her walls. This story pushes her to the limit that this is the only way she can cover up things. It changes everything. I just want to hug her so tight as if I can pick up all the pieces that tore her down.
Love people when they deserve it least. They’re the one who’s hard to accept their real situation so they act like they’re so strong so no one can hurt them again. We can’t always know the real story of the people for them to be understood but we can love them because they need it the most.
Mat 5:46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. Mat 5:47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.
