The Care & Feeding of Zebras

An A to Z Look At The Ironies Of Life

Acceptance 

We all have the inherent desire to feel needed, wanted, belonging, accepted, understood, valued, a part of “community.” Often to the point of loosing any resemblance of who we are and were meant to be. Willing to do almost anything to fill the void in our hearts and souls just too feel we are accepted by “our peers.”it’s hard to choose to “buck the system.” But if I claim to be trying to follow the teachings of a Jewish Carpenter, who not only “bucked the system,” but defeated and destroyed it, then why am I giving it so much control over my life. Yes, of course, I do care how the world sees and accepts me! I still want and need to feel love and being a part of community, but I have found it far more important to desire how God sees me and accepts me then the world He has defeated. Remember, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! For if I gain the world and loose my soul I ave not won anything. Trust God, His way is perfect! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543
