Don’t believe the hype by Tamara Patrick

It’s so easy to get caught up in worldly things. It is so easy to drift away from God, our one and only source of life and all that is. It is so easy to believe that you are a body who has a soul, when in fact it’s the other way around; you are a soul with a body.

Don’t believe the hype. You are not your clothes, your hair or your shoes. Beauty has nothing to do with outer appearance. ‘Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.’ - 1 Peter 3:3-4

You are not what other people say or think about you. Not one bad word (or compliment!) made by other people can ever define who you really are. God is who you are! God is our only and true source of life and all that is! God lives in us and we in Him. You are more than what you wear, more than the money you own, the car you drive and the people you hang with. If you know this, and you still feel the need to chase after worldly things… remember that you are only chasing them to fill an empty heart. Searching for love in worldly things and other people will never (NEVER!) satisfy you. Only God is love, and only God can give you this perfect love you’re searching for.

Thanks for sharing Tamara! Excellent Post!
