So....while sitting in church tonight, I was asked this question, "Who do you follow?"
As a christ follower, the obvious answer was God. Once I got to actually thinking about that question though I realized God was not the one I have been following. I had been following the people around me. Without realizing it, I have been conforming based on people's opinions.
I changed the color of my hair because someone told me I would look hotter. Then I changed my hair style to improve my image. I changed my clothes so I would fit in with everyone else. I thought that all this would make me happy, but it didn't.
It took me a little while, but I'm finally starting to realize that my happiness truely is in God. Material things would not fill that void in my heart. Sure, it was nice for people to compliment me and everything, but something was still missing.
So now the process starts over again. Trying to get back to me. The REAL me. Not the me that the world wants me to be, but the me that God wants me to be. It's time to stop following the people around me and follow the ONLY one that can truely make me happy, God.
