So often we get caught up in the futility of life, thinking and acting like everyone else & seeking what doesn't really matter in life just because everyone is pursuing a status - a life that impresses only themselves and brings self-satisfaction - and then we feel like we are really chasing the wind!
What really matters to you?
"Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognise what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." Romans 12:2
For me, what really matters is seeking Jesus with all my heart, having my relationship with Him getting closer and closer every day - nothing in this world will ever completely satisfy me if it's not His presence - the emptiness & futility of this world don't attract me but make me want to be closer to him.
Don't strive to fit into a certain group of people but be yourself and I'm 100% sure that you will draw the best people around you because you will pour out love into their lives and this is what really matters - His love being poured out into people's hearts! JESUS is what really matters! Do you love Him enough to say - take the world but give me Jesus? take everything that would take His place so that I can have Him more real in my life.. Would you say that?
SEEK what really matters!
and you'll find Him so ready to take your relationship with him to a whole nother level!
The more you know who He is - the more you know who you are.
Know your identity and stop chasing the wind!
