Cheese is GREAT!

WHAT?! You disagree with me?!

WHY do so many people think we have to agree on everything with co-workers, church members, or online “friends” and if they don’t like exactly all the same stuff we like we have to make rude comments about them or “unfriend” them?!

When someone doesn’t share the same view as you do and decides to “unfriend” or “unfollow” you based only on the fact that you don’t like a certain sports team as much, that’s just too sad.

The God of the Universe Who created EVERYTHING, including you, decided to make each person unique.

EVERY person will like or dislike different things.

ALWAYS.

That’s a God thing.

If HE decided to make us this way then WHY do we spend so much time being hurt over the fact that “She doesn’t agree that saving butterflies in Africa should be THE most important thing in the world. I’m going to take my ball and go home.”

Seriously?!

Stop it!

If God chose to make us EACH different ON PURPOSE, maybe that’s a good thing!

If everyone felt the need to protect the endangered fish then we wouldn’t have electricity or even bicycles! We wouldn’t have shampoo! Or cheese. Cheese is GREAT! Thank you to the cheese makers.

It is OKAY and necessary for us to have our own opinions and interests. It’s something God put in us.

Try something new. Try to encourage someone’s talents or interests instead of being offended that she doesn’t like cats as much as you do.

YOU ARE AMAZING.

God MADE you this way.

Be amazing AND a little more encouraging to all the other amazing people in your life.

The people who cross your path are not the same people who will cross my path.

They need your encouragement and support!

Believe it or not people look up to you and they care what you think of them.

Proverbs 27:17

YOU don’t HAVE to be perfect.

People tell you… culture tells you… you have to be good enough; great enough; perfect enough; BEST enough.

But why?

Jesus says lean on Him and HE will make you enough.

I don’t HAVE to be strong enough.

And I cannot be.

If I could be all that is needed, then WHY would He have DIED for me?  It’s not just all about having fun and happy times.  It’s about serving others and about doing the jobs we were created to do.

If I had to be broken so that Jesus could shine through me to show His Glory, I think I’m okay with that.  ❤

Check it out.  Jesus heals a blind guy.
John 9:1-5

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
