Sometimes I find it very hard to be a Christian in today's world.
Everywhere I look it is "Hate" and "I need..." and "You aren't..." and so on and so forth.
Sometimes it seems as though we can't have an opinion because our opinion is "wrong." That doesn't make sense to me.
For me, it has gotten to the point where I am so sick of seeing the same people in the news that I simply don't read whatever it is about them. Those people have so much power! They have so much influence! And they waste it. Just imagine how much more encouraging the world would be if just a few of those people stopped focusing on themselves, or on hate, or materialistic things and instead said just one encouraging word a day. Just one Facebook status. Just one Twitter post. Just one picture on Instagram. Imagine how AWESOME THAT WOULD BE!
Unfortunately for most people with power, that isn't the case.
But, there are people who definitely do. They may not have a lot of power but, somehow this small town girl from the Midwest discovered these:
I know what you are thinking: “How are bible verses something you just discovered!?”
But it goes a little further than just awesome bible verses. Someone had to put in effort and time and creativity and a whole lot of other qualities into those pictures. They intentionally made those pictures into something remarkable. Then, they made the effort to put it online. After spending sometime on the World Wide Web, those pictures found their way to Pinterest, where I proceeded to find them. So, yes I have no idea who created those pictures. But, I like to think that they are trying to do the same thing I am: just trying to do the best they can to bring God’s Word to the world! I can honestly say they are doing a super job at it too. I mean, again if this small town Midwest girl can find them, then anyone can!
So whoever you are, if by some miniscule chance you come across my tiny blog on the enormous internet, I want to say thanks! Seeing these and others have, some days, really made the difference between a good day and a bad day. Not just for me, but for others too :) :)
