As I walk in this world, I want to be recognized as a light in the midst of darkness. I don’t want to blend in. Period. However, I’m human, so I have to check myself daily…aka….crucify that flesh!
I shouldn’t have to wear a Christian t-shirt to be identified as a child of God. I shouldn’t have to carry around a salt shaker or flashlight for people to know that I’m the salt of the earth and the light of the world. If I’m talking the talk, I shouldn’t have to defend my walk.
I’ve made up my mind. I refuse to compromise to fit in. I refuse to compromise to have friends. I refuse to compromise. Period.
I may get down and I may get lonely, but I’ll never be alone. Like Angie, I plan to put my focus on being a Jesus Pleaser instead of a People Pleaser. And as much as being a Martha is needed and required, I’m refuse to feel guilty for being a Mary. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not letting go of the Martha in me, but I do tend to feel guilty when I’m in the Mary zone. Not any more. Why? Because it’s all about Him. And He is holy, therefore I must be holy.
