NATURAL BORN FOLLOWERS?
Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it. Charles R. Swindoll
At some point, we will have to go our own way, but that won’t happen if you are a Natural Born Follower.
If this is you, you’re not going or saying anything outside of what you have been told. As a matter of fact, Ken Follet ask us, Why do we have to be the same as others?… Most of them are stupid?
If living freely is what Life is all about, what’s the point of choosing a dictated life that restricts that? Why choose to support someone whose sole purpose is to imprison our ideas in order to carry out their own agenda?
I can’t answer that question but what I do know is we have a choice, and because of that, many lives could be transformed by implementing your ideas and interests? We just never know, but, great things have evolved from a single person, and that includes The Good The Bad and The Ugly.
In my opinion, if you are a follower that’s following after Jesus Christ, you are right where you need to be. On the other hand, if you are a person that claims to be godly, but without empathy (compassion), coupled with a healthy lack of respect for others, I can almost guarantee your life isn’t Going Anywhere, even if I take into consideration some folks are just happy being led, they say there is no pressure.
Basically, we are who we are and most of that personal connection is based on making crucial decisions for ourselves and sometimes others; on the other side, some may be incapable and others really don’t care.
You may be surprised at the number of people who do not want to make intelligent decisions that are mentality stable, only to be weak in character. Let’s not forget the scared of everything crowd, the ones with no backbone to stand up for themselves let alone others.
The good thing is the majority of people who are uncertain are only in need of direction. The question is, where are we getting those precious directions from? Following Fools are NOT suggested by me nor is it in the Bible.
Did you know the source of most information is generally where our misinformation comes from? Now you know, so don’t get me wrong, not everyone is full of it; some have been misled, others like messes, so a good start is to search for The Real Answers by Researching the Source…Where did this information come from?
I would take advantage of our God-given right to choose and to fact check everything in this so-called, New Norm.
There is a price to pay when we deny ourselves personal freedoms, such as researching our heart, soul, and goals while trusting our gut feelings and praying to Jesus Christ for answers. If not we will follow those who seek to ruin, rule and destroy us alone with all Humanity.
In my mind, I think we all should seek to know why are we so willing to follow a losing cause or person? The answer could be we have been taught to obey certain things since early childhood, as I said before, and without a doubt, it is who and what we were taught that shaped us.
It’s sad to say that some children were taught and expected to carry on family traditions that are not worthy and out of step with progress; although a few may be mean-spirited, others found the truth and their way out.
Today, as some are coming of age but still under the authority of the caregivers, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we at such a young age, thought to think, where is this going, why don’t I feel good about what I do or say?
Just so you know, I know some are taught to fear Going Outside Of The Box in order to be kept under control.
FYI: There is no gain in trying to mirror or destroy another. If you are compelled to be someone you feel you’re not, seek Help. Go to a Bible believing Bible teaching Church, talk to a Pastor, a friend, etc…
As we get older and common sense has made an appearance, I would start running towards self-discovery. Don’t you know how important you are, don’t you know you are just as sufficient as anyone else on Planet Earth? And you need to know that the person you are following instead of Jesus Christ knows that.
When we are on the right side of the fence, confidence and success are possible, but if we are on the wrong side of the fence, it may be good for a while but in the end, Karma will make you suffer if not kill you.
Don’t lose your soul dedicating time to make the World Worse then it already is. Don’t let your life be a dreadful existence following after those who are full of hate and creating an even darker outlook. Did you know they aren’t even worthy of your presence?
If you really want to find your voice and your place, remember, The Attitude you take with you will determine if that trip ends well.
I believe no one comes out of the womb with the knowledge to hate, to kill, to steal, or the greed, etc…it’s taught, creating a life that is either a wonderful adventure or a hellish ordeal paired with the biggest waste of all times, doing Nothing Worthwhile, At All…
As for me, I am not going down with a ship that the Captain is pouring water into. I will just have to learn how to swim on my own. You do you!
It’s Something To Think About!
To God Be The Glory!
