I Am Christian

I haven't written a story in a while, but I just wanted to share a few thoughts. As a Christian, sometimes I don't know where I belong or fit in. Recently, I have been growing more in Christ and repenting from past sin. I try not to judge anybody for what they do, because that is not my place. I went out with a small group of ladies from my church and I didn't feel completely comfortable in the conversation. Profanity was being thrown left and right and I am not saying I have no fault or that I haven't sometimes accidently let an inappropriate word slip out, but this was different. I truly want to seek a place where I feel like I belong. It often feels like I'm "too Christian" or "not Christian enough". I'm struggling to find a group of supportive Christian women that I can simply be myself around.

It will be a challenge for as long as you are on this side of the Great Divide. The key to it is to not take offence or imitate. Set your own course and trust Him to guide and guard.

That, my friend, is one of the biggest struggles of the Christian walk. That's why it's so important to remember that your security and self - worth comes from not only who you are, but whose you are. You are chosen, accepted, and dearly loved by God. Keep your eyes on Him rather than on those around you or the circumstances around you and you will find joy and contentment in Him. Easier said than done, but it's so important.

[@635091,Gethsemane] Thank you. I needed this reminder for myself. I often tell others that we aren't of this world and we cannot depend on others for our joy. Our joy lies within the arms of Christ.
