Don’t Forget To Be Yourself

I know it’s cliché and a little cheesy, but it’s great advice once you think about it.

God made you unique.

At some point, we all feel the need to fit in, look, and act like everyone else, right?

God made us in His own image.

If God made us set apart, unique, and perfectly imperfect, why in the world would we want to be like everyone else?

Is it because we are afraid to get picked on? Maybe, yes.

We are taught that being different is weird. We are taught that standing out in a crown of clones makes you a freak. we are taught that completely natural imperfections need to be hidden, that we need to look a certain way, and that we need to appear like we have everything figured out.

Well, guess what. We will never be perfect, and we should never try to be or try to look perfect. you are set apart. you are unique.

Never forget that

 

 

late night thoughts · rant

kids these days…

hey all,
lately i’ve been thinking… why are teenagers glued to their phones these days? why do these girls have boyfriends so young and why do they feel the need to wear a full face of makeup every day? eventually I realized something: maybe we do these things because of a pain deeper inside. I’ve heard and seen many (not all) adults looking down on teens like me, and be too quick to judge us. so what? maybe I like spending an extra twenty minutes in my makeup because I am spending time on myself? maybe my face is buried in my phone because the only people I can talk to that truly understand me are the ones i’ve only ever met on Instagram? maybe?

or… not maybe. this is my life. I feel alone. I find that every time I’m stressed out, I reach for my makeup bag. I constantly find myself scrolling through Instagram every day for hours because I feel like nobody, not even me, gets me. but when I go to Instagram and talk to my online friends in Ireland and Montana, I feel understood and not as alone. but some people these days don’t get that. some people refuse to look deeper, and instead they judge. many kids I know are depressed, alone, and  unfairly judged. I’m sure that in a hundred years, people will yearn for the days of cropped tops and skinny jeans to come back.

i think everyone needs to stop focusing on how “awful” this generation is, and start accepting change. that’s just my opinion

thank you for reading my rant

Hey all
lately I’ve been taking a break from wfl, if you couldn’t tell. I’ve just been suuuper busy with school, which usually takes me all day. and if you know my mom, you know that getting my schoolwork done and caught up is her top priority. It’s very stressful, but i know it comes from a place of love and that it’s also stressful for her. I don’t know if she understands exactly what its like being a teenager in 2017, either. I, along with almost every teenager in this world, am going through the whole my-social-life-is-more-important-than-homework thing, which makes makes everything really hard.

also, in my recent posts, I know they kind of seem half cheeked (and I’m super sorry for that), and like I have not been my happy, cheerful self. I’m just going through a lot right now. I will hopefully get back into the swing-o-things soon. but first, may I just say that if you have a problem with me, my blog, or what I post, please just unsubscribe. this blog is just about my beliefs, and I always back them up with the bible (with FULL context).

I love you very much. stay lovely!
xoxo- Faith

HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR DISABLED PEOPLE. 

Im seeing a lot of posts bashing people with special needs. 
After people use hateful words against disabled people, they tell them to stop being a wuss. 

It’s one thing when crybabies get their feeling hurt, but it’s a whole different story when people disrespect and bully those with disabilities. 

If you purposefully insult special needs people, they have every right to be offended. 

I need to see more people with RESPECT towards special needs people.

verse of the day

Mark 7:10-13

10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother;’ and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban, that is to say, given to God”;’ 12 then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or his mother, 13 making void the word of God by your tradition, which you have handed down. You do many things like this.”
