What Defines You?

what-defines-you

Hello and welcome to Sunday! A Sunday hopefully filled with joy and peace and yes a Miami Dolphins win! I started my “pre-work” for my surgery last night by taking a shower in this antibiotic stuff to help prevent any infections during my procedure. Also my bride changed the sheets on our bed per the docs instructions so we shall see what happens. Just wanting it to be over ya know? Alright onto business…

I find myself often wrapped up in this and then God smacks me in the face a little and sets me straight. Let me give you all that same “smack in the face” this morning ok? Listen and listen very closely…You are NOT defined by the number of “followers”, “likes”, “re-tweets”, etc that you get a day. Did you hear me? Let me say it again…You are NOT defined by the number of “followers”, “likes”, “re-tweets”, etc that you get a day. I want each of you to say this 10 times right now…I’ll wait……

Ok, I’m back with coffee in hand. Did you say it? Well if you didn’t I’m sad because this is another “Removing the Veil” moment. Lucifer has our minds so twisted that we validate our self worth by how we fit into each of these categories. Do we want people to read our stuff? Of course! We all write for various reasons but I would hazard to guess that most of us write to express something that is passionate to us. Guess what? The Creator of the Universe and all that is in it loves you and is more interested in what you have to say than anyone here ever will be! He doesn’t care how many likes you get today, what He cares about is YOU. He cares that you have self-worth that can only be found through Christ.

I see people that have thousands and thousands of followers on this blog or Twitter or Facebook and yet no comments or feedback. Wanna know why? They don’t care! They are only in it hoping you will follow back and boost their numbers. If you have ONE person that reads your stuff and answers back you are fortunate. True that sometimes people read and take in material and just don’t say anything but more times than not they are worried only about this….

This is it ^^^. Your just a number. Point this morning is please don’t base your self worth and heck even your success in your writing based on a number. You may be making an impact on someone you will never hear from and more importantly you have value from the Creator! There is where your self-worth should come from friends; you are so much more than a number……

Truth,

David

  1. Amen ๐Ÿ™‚ I do think some people are genuine, and comment to others. But with larger numbers, you can’t reach everyone. You are right though, many do not, and it is a shame. Thanks for being honest!
