I’m just going to ramble for a minute. This has been on my heart this past week and I thought you ladies would be encouraged by it too.
Last week, a cool guy friend of ours – Jeff Peters – made a simple yet profound statement to me while Aaron was playing at a gig. The place was packed and everyone was engaged in my hubby’s performance. That’s what every entertainer wants, right? I was explaining how happy I was that the place was filled with loyal fans then my friend said something to the effect of, “Yes, that’s great, but we should all be more concerned with the audience of one” then he pointed his finger to the sky. God was who he was talking about.
WHOA!!!!!!!! The place went silent and this hit me like a ton of bricks for a few seconds.
Don’t you love it when people around you are truly iron sharpening iron?!? (Thanks Jeff!!) This resonated with me all week. We live in a world where so many people are trying to warp the perception about themselves on social media and make us all believe they are something they are not. They are more concerned with how many followers they have and…so….
Are you more concerned with impressing people than you are about impressing God?
The silly thing is God knows who you are so it’s a slap in His face when you are being the fake, inauthentic version of yourself to the world. He created you to be exactly who you are with all your gifts, shortcomings, talents and flaws. He must shake His head when He sees someone put out a fake representation of themselves. I want to make Him proud. Don’t you?
As an influencer, I pray daily for God to enlarge my territory (Prayer of Jabez) which means, yes– grow my social media, but there is a mission and purpose behind it. Are you more concerned with feeling “popular” or are you more focused on the amount of people you could add value to? Again, God knows your heart!
Summer is behind us and as we head into Fall, take a look back at your 2016 goals. Have you hit them or missed the mark a few times? You still have time to create the best year yet!
I encourage you all to set your intentions toward impressing God more.
Please give me you 2-cents on this topic!
The world wants and needs the authentic YOU!
