Alright, so it has been almost a year and a half since I last posted something to Instagram. I left asking a simple question: “What am I doing this for?”
While I knew the answer would have to be “For the glory of Christ” but Christ’s glory was not my main motive at the time.
I decided to “clear the stage” I stopped posting. I realized it was only making me more prideful and greedier. Both of which can take the form of idolatry. I was putting my desires for attention ahead of Christ’s glory.
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” - 1 Corinthians 10:31
Now you may or may not be able to notice a change, but the change has occurred in my heart and that’s where it counts.
I am so excited to be posting again. I have come to realize just how huge of an opportunity it is to use Instagram as a stage. This stage is to be comparable to my life. A life I live where Christ is the Lord of my life, the one who owns the stage. The most incredible thing is that our highest possible good is to bring glory to God Himself. God! The Creator of the universe! The All-Powerful, Entirely Holy, Perfect God! We get to bring Him glory! No kidding bringing Him glory is our highest good! It’s unbelievable just to think that we would even be able to bring Him glory! He is so good! Not only is it a HUGE privilege to worship God to glorify Him, it’s what He made us for!! LIKE WHAT?! Not only does He create us, give us life, allow us to live, but He DESIRES our worship! Christ suffered, died, and rose again just so that we could glorify Him forever and be with Him!
I’ve gone on a bit of a tangent, but we are so blessed that God wants our worship, He wants our stages. He can and has mine. “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!” - Psalm 115:1
God has taught me so much in themes since the last time I posted. I’m not gonna explain them all right now but basically He taught me more about: His’s protection, His timing, His provision, Community, listening to His still small voice, stop being so attached to plans cause God knows so much better, faith, trust, follo(cont’d in comments)
