I'm trying to sort out the difference between thinking and doing.

wondering if the words I say and the things I do line up at all.
the difference between the idea and the putting into practice.
what is it?

what difference does it make if I'm a Christian on Facebook,
but not in daily doings?
I'm not claiming that I'm a completely two-faced,
hypocritical liar with no spirituality outside of the Internet.
feel free to think that if you'd like, but that's not the point.

on a long-winded side-note, I've finally come to a place where I literally do not care about what people think about me.
every once in a while, my pride will show up and I do think about how a certain situation or something else looks to other people.
yes, I do care about how people view Christ through me.
yes, I do care about people wanting to correct me out of a loving heart.
but who am I serving?
in no way am I the epitome of a servant, no.
but I'm trying, and learning.


the world does not need another Facebook Christian.
or another Christian hiding behind a blog.

what the world does need is a group of real people,
who are different.
they reach out, they help, they spread goodness,
they are truly Christ's followers.
no, they are not popular.
but they are known for who they are. for who Christ is.
He is always the difference.

that's the person I want to be. that's the difference.


  1. LOVE it!

    What does "REAL" look like to you?

  2. Kayla! thank you, dear.

    I believe that these people are authentic, humble, not at all contrived.. they're just who they are, because they know who Jesus says they are. unashamed of it. they've been through hell and back, and they know what forgiveness is in its truest form. to me personally, someone who would give you the clothes off their back and go out of their way to show you they care would fit into that, too.
