Perspective...

I never like to put things on my car like stickers or anything. I just feel it makes a car not look nice, especially over time, that sticker soon fades.

I have thought about and liked the idea of getting one of the "NOTW" stickers or a Christian fish or saying to put on the window or as a license plate frame but never wanted to look like a hypocrite to others when I have a "bad" or "angry"moment and falter while driving.

Then I got to thinking yesterday while I was driving home from work.

Shouldn't it be God that I'm worried about looking like a hypocrite to? If anyone is gonna see when I falter, it's God. Whether or not I have a sticker on my car or not, I can't hide from Him.

It made me realize, I shouldn't care what other people think when I have these "bad" moments. I need to worry about God seeing me act like this.

Only God Can Judge. Pictures, Images and Photos

I have been a lot better these days. I've learned to "chill" while driving which is why I started thinking "Maybe it's time since I'm behaving myself". It also made me think that my priorities weren't where they should have been either.

I can totally relate to this post Kimmy. I'm really working on not caring about what others think of me too!

Since turning my life over to God, my old friends (I'll call them party buddies) now exclude me.

To be honest, I really didn't feel comfortable around all the drunk party people anymore anyways (but I NEVER judge anyone), I guess it's different if it's just weird to not be "part of the group" anymore. I know it's a growing period in my life right now though.

You are so right about only caring about what God sees!!!

GREAT BLOG & I love your honesty!

Wow!! I feel like this post was written just for me! I can totally understand that feeling. I know that in all ways I want represent God in a way that will make people want to know him too, and I'm often aware that in my moments of - let's call them ugly human-ness :) - I make God unappealling. When, in actuality, it's not God who is doing anything wrong and at the end of the day, I'm only accountable to Him anyways.

I love your blog....can wait to read more as I follow along.
