Get Real!

So many people today are fakes, phonies, pretenders and show offs.  There has to come a time in your life, where you GET REAL with yourself and put all the charades aside.  Enough pretending - simply be YOU!  So many times, I've seen people act a certain way to please others, all the while they are pushing their own individualities to the curb. They lose their sense of self and what God has made them to be.  They get lost in this persona that they feel will get accepted by their peers, those in authority over them or whoever it may be they are trying to please.

It's time to get real with yourself and push aside your fear of rejection and allow the person God made you to be to shine.  I've come to the place in my own life, where I honestly could care less what others think of me and its taken me a long time to get there mentally.  Sure, I could say with my mouth that I didn't care what others thought but deep down there it was and would soon arise again.  However, through trials, personal slanders, insults, criticisms and seeing through the phoniness of others you began to realize that they don't matter in the whole scheme of things.  What really matters is GOD and what he wants for you and it isn't to live your life pleasing someone else besides Him!

God wants us to take full advantage of what he has designed us to be and our personalities.  Through illness, I've learned what is really important to me and isn't mulling over who is gossiping about me this week!  Why would you let satan use what others think of you to the point where you are completely controlled by it in your mind?  It's time to break free from those chains and GET REAL!

There will always be those who brown-nose, act a certain way around others to get approval and put on a good show but then there can be you being REAL and to those that value authenticity - they will take note!  If you can't let your hair down, have a good laugh, have a deep conversation without your mamby-pamby feelings being hurt - then you need to get real and let go of your insecurities!

Are you a professional chameleon?  Do you change your demeanor based upon who you are with and who walks in the room?  Do you crave approval?  Do you do things to be accepted?  Play all your cards right and ensure you are the ultimate poster child of perfection?  Then its time that you.........GET REAL!

Bev,

I am starting to become more real as the months go by. I am serious by the months. Due to alot of thinking lot you stated. Nothing matters other than GOD's opionions.

I have always stated with my mouth I don't care, but in my mind I did. So, I for sure learning how to be more in tune with myself due to the fact that our ministry life has reached higher levels.

You know higher levels more devils.

Yes, you are right Chrissy - the more you do for God and especially with ministry - the more satan will fight you. These tactics of the enemy; satan, are common to man - using what others think of us and having us become distracted by that and therefore using that to lessen our effect. However, we can be aware of his devices and fight them! What happens when we conquer one of his tactics? He goes to another tactic lol - we will always be in warfare but we know that with Christ - we win in the end if we keep the fight!! ;-)

LOL sister amen! We need to be real and not care what people think. If someone doesn't like me then oh well that's their problem not mine. Just tell them to take it up with Jesus because they need an attitude adjustment and they need to get real and quit walking around with their phoniness. I see chameleons all the time and they think that they are better than everybody else but God resists the proud.
Love ya
