It can be incredibly hard to go against the grain of your friends. To stand up for what you believe in and to stay in the light and power of God. However, stay strong in God’s truth and the powerful message you can bring to others to help their let shine too!
God has a huge purpose for your life: Think about it — nothing would be the same if you weren’t here. You were designed for a purpose; don’t throw away your talents for what’s “cool” in the moment. Satan is everywhere, and is seeking to destroy people and lead them further away from Jesus. This is one of the reasons I am sharing the evil ways of people in the media like Lady Gaga — how she wants to hurt people through her demonic music. That’s what Satan wants!
Let yourself be above all of the sinful influences, and you will reap tremendous rewards. Here is a quote to help you realize your potential and God’s love for you!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Nelson Mandela
