Don't Compromise

It's time to stand up and make a difference as a generation. Let's be the generation that speaks, that acts, that doesn't compromise.

What do you want out of life? When you get to the end of your rope, are you going to be satisfied with what you've accomplished? Or are you just going to be one more life, came and went with the wind? Let's make a difference with this one life we've been given. Let's change the world.

You're not too dumb, not too young, not too old. God is AMAZING and can do anything through you! Start today doing hard things; don't procrastinate and wait till tomorrow to make a difference. It has to happen today if it's ever going to happen. Do the small hard things first, like staying awake in class, being respectful to the teacher, not texting in class. It's hard but you can do it.

Don't be afraid as you take on challenges. You have Jesus living inside of you. "Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16)

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." (Isaiah 41:10)"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." (Deuteronomy 31:6)

My life goal has always been to touch as many lives as I can and to make a difference in this world. 1 Timothy 4:12 says, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."

It doesn't matter at the end of your life who liked you and how many friends you had on facebook. What truly matters is what you did with your life. Did you spend your time wisely? Did you sit with that lonely kid at lunch? Or were you afraid of getting made fun of? Did you stand up and leave when the pressure was on you to stay?

It doesn't matter what people think of you. What truly matters is what God thinks of you. He loves you so much! So don't waste the life He's given you! Christy Nockels says in her song Hosanna "I see a generation, rising up to take their place, with selfless faith." Are we not that generation? It's time to stand up and make a difference. Don't conform to the world. Don't settle with low expectations. Do something to change the world.

Dear Jesus,
I want to live for You. I don't want to live for this world. I want to make an impact for Your Kingdom. That's what's eternal. I know You want to live for me. I know You can work through me. I commit myself and my life to You and following Your will and way. It will be hard, but I have Your strength dwelling within me. Help me, Lord.

In Your Powerful Name,
Amen.
