Wow!! 200 followers! I know I say it all the time but I’m so incredibly proud of this community and how much it has grown since I start this little blog over a year ago. So thank you to those who are new here and those who have followed this writing community since day one. You are all beautiful, amazing people and I wouldn’t still be here, writing away if it wasn’t for all of you!
God has really been amazing me lately. He has closed some doors, some that needed closing and He has gone ahead, opening others. He is providing things that I never thought I would need, constantly looking out for me. He is so good. He is my all and all. All I want to do is praise Him for always working out things for my good.
On another note, did anyone catch the VMA’s last night? Cause if you did, I’m so sorry for you.
I only watched half of it but I felt like someone took my brain and shook it. I’m constantly amazed at how much television and networks push the envelope with things now but this was on another level. It’s sad to see what music has become, what people think beauty is, and the fact that children are growing with that as their culture.
We shouldn’t look to that as our standard. We should strive for so much better. Women are more than their bodies, they have brains, personalities, and opinions. We need to stop sexualizing every single woman, and man, on these shows. Men are more than just macho, muscle, sex-craved animals, they have emotions, they cry and bleed just like women. The entire show portrayed this and it was disappointing to say the least at how low humanity has become.
But I know that everyone has worth and value because Jesus said so on the cross. Even if you aren’t a believer in Christ and you think I sound crazy, don’t you still think that humans are so much more than that? Don’t you think that there must be something higher than us, some sort of hope or ray of light in this dark, difficult, hard world we live in?
God is my refuge and strength, and in Him I have a hope, for something better and something worth holding on to.
