I Want To Shine For God, Not Fit Into The World
By VivaciousSun on June 25, 2014
I need to share this on here and publicly, as this is something that has burning on my heart, Spirit and mind. Concerning a situation that took place a few weeks back where I was forced to block people, who I really don't have contact with at all, we live 2500 miles from each other and honestly, we all have our own lives to live now with or without each other. Everyone can have their opinions that is fine, this is my blog and my thoughts on the thing of blocking people as a Christian woman.
I have been praying a lot of on this whole mess, I pray daily for all of us, I pray that God will bring about change and healing, hopefully restoration. I also feel that when I say I am a Christian, it must be by my walk and not just the speech part of it, words are only words. I need to show by my own personal actions that I am set apart and show the world the love that God shows me, showing them the same forgiveness, love and mercy that God shows me on a daily basis. I don't feel I need to block these people anymore, I need to be not of this world and do as the world does, I need and have to do what God would do. I truly believe that in my heart of hearts. It's almost like leading by example, I need to be God's example to the world and not allow Satan to win this battle.
Satan would love for me to bad mouth these people, take part in the games of drama and negativity, fighting and strife, he gets off on that. However, I am going to play that game, I am going to be the light that shines for God, maybe they will read my words, see by my actions that God is alive. Maybe they will want, what I have in my life, perhaps my example can win them over to God, that is what God wants. I am not saying I want toxic people in my life, let alone the drama they carry with them, I am saying I want to bring more people to God. I want to see more souls gained for God, for them to have eternal life, to have the happiness and peace I have in my own life. I want what God wants for His people and the world, I want to see more people turn to God and have the awesome relationship I have with God.
God didn't block me when I walked away from Him, God didn't block me when I spoke bad things about Him and did the cruel things against Him. He stayed strong and loved me through it all, He didn't give up on me, He held tight and waited patiently for me to come to my senses. I want to be more like God and Jesus, be led by the Holy Spirit. We have become a society of people who think it's okay to delete and block people online, like it's something we do in our real offline life, it's sad. We are a throw away society online and offline to other people and sadly animals, I don't want to be like that anymore. I speak from experience from my own life, through my family, former friends and so on. I want to show others that I do love and care for them, even if it's from a distance, this is truly a subject that God has really been speaking to me on this.
Matthew 10:14 says "If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet."
It doesn't say delete or block these people, just dust it off and move on. However we are to keep loving them from afar and praying for them, that is true, unconditional love for all man and woman kind. I truly believe this with my whole heart. I just won't play in the drama or contact them if they contact me, that is on them. I won't be drug into the drama of it all, I will pray for them and wish them all. That is what God wants me to do.
I will keep shining the light, keep growing in my relationship with God, sharing my life with the world and pray for everyone in it. That is what I am called to do. Again, this is what God has put on my heart as of late and I am working to change that part of my former self, so that I can be more like Christ.
