In lieu of all the chaos, tragedy, trauma, discord, violence, etc., etc., we must remember that GOD is still GOD, and we are still HIS people..We will be okay. Please stand with CYU in prayer:
Just because those around you are satisfied climbing the mountain of mediocrity doesn’t mean you have to be. My grandfather wasn’t a religious man but he was an honorable one and just as the scripture tells us to commit to GOD whatever we do, he used to tell me not to bother doing something unless I was willing to give it my all–And for him, it didn’t matter what it was.
“23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24
As Christians we are to be an example to the world; leading the way to a better way. NEVER lower your standards to fit in even if you are the only one. Beloved, you are a light shining in a dark place and sometimes that light burns a little too bright for those who do not have the courage or fortitude to walk the narrow path.
If people turn away from you, it’s OK, you are not to labor to fit into their club, for it’s far too costly..
“1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.” Ephesians 5:1-7
Until Next time,
Consecrate yourselves to GOD
Love, Destiny / CYU
I was once asked what my major pet peeves are and my answer was and is, “Back door cowards, and wet socks!” ©
By wet socks, I literally mean, “wet socks”.. I loathe them!
But, today’s thought isn’t about that, it’s about something else. Today, I’m shaking my head over a post I recently posted where one of my “Back Door Cowards” (a term I coined for someone who won’t acknowledge my talent but loves to copy it), took what I posted, changed it just a little, then added the “F” word, & now it’s a hit with thousands of likes and shares; this is what I experience over & over again, but, lovelies, remember, “YOUR Anointing, YOUR uniqueness, YOUR voice, YOUR Gifts, and YOUR passion cannot be duplicated, only mimicked” and in the end, these cowards be will be exposed..
“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17
I have acquaintances in my artistic circles who are hesitant (some unwilling) to post their works out of fear of them being stolen, and I do understand, but to allow a thief and a coward to hinder your progress is neither wise nor fruitful. In all, lovelies, the proof is in the pudding, and victory, success, vindication, justification, compensation, and acknowledgment, is to the one who owns the ingredients ♛
