They will call you stupid...

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." - 1 Corinthians 1:18

You worship a God you cannot see and people think you're crazy.

You tell people His love satisfies every craving your heart desires, they think you're weird.

You live your life for the unseen, though in your heart's eye everything is clear. They say you're stupid.

You must not let what the rest of the world says about you, dictate the way you live your life. Words from the world are not facts, only opinions.

Sometimes I wish everyone could just see that God is who He says He is and He is so real. Unfortunately, people will see what they want to and we have all been in darkness before we came to Light.

Life seems simple at first. We live for ourselves. Look for all the happiness and pleasure we can find, but eventually it gets old. Running around in circles is only satisfying for a little bit before you want to see something new.

I know how discouraging it can be when someone says what you're doing, 'doesn't matter.' or 'makes no sense.', but we must not allow the words of others keep us from following the Word of God.

Stand strong. People will fail us, discourage us, and let us down, but God! He never fails us or lets us down. He always has your back! Let Him be your encouragement. Let the thoughts of one day hearing, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." be your motivation. His love makes it all worth it.

Happy Monday!
