I will admit that I am a Christian woman with a sometimes awful potty mouth. I do not claim to be perfect. But I also don’t have a meme or post praising Jesus one moment, and the next minute having one talking about going to a strip club. Some of the women that I know on social media (Very few) are such nasty talkers or just low class in their choice of words at times, but at other times they are quoting C.S. Lewis.
I know that we all have somewhat “schizo” personalities. Even people that are not diagnosed with a serious personality or mental disorder can change like the wind. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I can go from one extreme to another with my feelings. But to be super holy one day and super sinful the next day is not having varying emotions. It is just plain crazy (IMHO). I keep talking about how I am trying to not judge, but is calling out people’s erratic behavior on social media judging, or just telling it like it is?
I have a friend/trend who gets on there with all of this kumbayah stuff and all of these posts about light and love and then she’s like-“Who is in for a Vegas girls trip?” Now we all not good and dang well that a Vegas trip spells nothing but trouble with a group of women who are either sex-starved or looking hungrily for a man. Believe me, these women are. I guess that I am saying that even though I have many sides to me (mom, daughter, friend, professional, seductress:), woman, child of God, hopeless romantic) I think that they are all pretty much in the middle. Maybe that’s not a good thing. Maybe I need to be a warrior for Christ and need to know every scripture. Maybe I need to be a serial-dater and have all of the men when my kid is away with friends. Perhaps I should work 60 hour weeks so that I could have more income. Okay, maybe the first one is okay to do:)
But seriously, are people super big time fakers on social media? Are they seeking attention? Are they wanting responses? I know that I write on here for responses sometimes. The same thing with Facebook or Instagram. Sometimes, we all just want to be heard and acknowledged. But I think that people need to be real with themselves and decide who they really are. Because we can not serve heaven and hell all at the same time. It is okay to have fun in life and to be human. No one is perfect except of course Jesus Christ. But no one will take us seriously if we are so extreme with our behavior that it makes no sense to not even ourselves.
Be true to you. Put things out there that you are proud of. If you are proud that you are going to a strip club, put it out there. If you are proud of your kid, let it be known. If you are a woman of God, show it. If you are the biggest heathen on earth, I don’t encourage that, but it is who you are. I think people can change and are fickle like me, but changing from a whore to a housewife five minutes between posts is not at all possible. Be real. Be you, If people do not like you for who you are, then that is their issue. I mean we all have things that we have to reel in, in order to not offend. I can’t tell people all of the time exactly what I would like to because it will hurt them. But I am certainly not being fake by using discernment.
I think that is the perfect word. Discernment. It is a word that many people this day and age do not even consider. Before we do anything, we need to always use good judgment and if it is something that is big or important, I ask for God’s discernment because I am not all-knowing and certainly need all the help that I can get when it comes to making wise choices. I think that we all do.
Moral of story. Be you. Be authentic. Think before you speak or post. Use wisdom. Ask for God’s help. Actually listen to what God, i.e., your intuition is telling you to do and do that.
Happy almost end of the work week! One more day for most, but I am off until Tuesday!!
