 Emily Blog.001.jpegAs a teenager, I’ve noticed that kids my age tend to prioritize the wrong things. We get so worried about how our most recent post on Twitter will not get enough retweets or how the way we dress will not be acceptable. We get so caught up in the world of reality, that we forget that there is anything besides it. Kids my age often think past the fact that God should be our main focus in life.

 Psalms 16:8 says, “I keep my eyes always on The Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”  This verse means to keep God in the front of your mind and do not let the world take you under it’s wing. As people of the earth we tend to put our earthly commitments before The Lord. But as children of God, we need to concentrate more on The Lord and concentrate less on other obligations

 In the song, “Fix My Eyes,” by For KINGS & COUNTRY, it talks about all the distractions that the world has for us to get caught up in. But once it gets to the chorus of the song, it states how we need fix our eyes towards The Lord above and listen to his callings for us. This song is a great reminder of how Christians should live their life here on earth.

 I wrote this originally to help myself realize that I need to not stress out about all the crazy interferences from God. And focus on God’s plan and opportunities he has in store for me. It’s easy to get distracted in everyday life, but by putting in little efforts here and there will help train your heart and your brain to Fix your eyes on God.

Set your mind on things above.” Colossians 3:2

Here is a wonderful post written by someone who serves both with The STORY Kids and The STORY Teens. This has been taken, with permission, from a recent post of hers on social media. Thank you Brittany!

“Harsh reality: you can’t change other people, you can only change yourself. Last night was one of those nights that I never like to reflect or dwell on, but today I felt like I needed to. Working in the restaurant industry can turn me into the person that I don’t want to be. Negative, selfish, judgmental, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to people and making their experience at my restaurant the best for them; BUT sometimes, it gets tough. I’m sure all my server homies can attest to this. Last night I was not treated very good (this is not the first time something like this has happened), and usually I would talk about how mean and rude people can be for treating me this way. I would get overly frustrated because I didn’t think I deserved to be treated that way. BUT this time I took a few deep breaths and I thought to myself, I may be the only Jesus that some people ever see. As much as I would want to before, I couldn’t be short, standoffish, or a little sassy because Jesus wouldn’t do so. Although I am human and still get upset, I treated this table with as much grace and kindness as I could. Now, I know I have a LONG way to go, but my hope is that I am as rich in love, slow to anger, and as kind as Jesus is in my every day life. This is someone that I long to become. I’m thankful to have such a role model and reflecting on my reactions to situations does the heart good. The only person that I can change is myself, and it starts with recognition and change of heart.” #liveabetterSTORY
