I don’t care.
I know this blog is full of opinions and (oftentimes) just a bunch of hot air. And to be honest, over the past couple of weeks I seriously considered bringing this episode of my life to a close and walking away from this blog.
So far I haven’t acted on that yet…
Lest you have a false impression about how I feel about certain things, let me set the record straight. But before I do, let me also state that I’m aware that I have some standards in my life that some of my readers do not have. I’m also aware that some of you may think I’m off my rocker for adhering to said standards. With that said, here’s what I really wanted to say in this post…
I don’t care.
There, I said it.
I don’t care if you agree with me or not. I didn’t write this blog to attract a group of people who would hold hands with me, sing Kum-By-Yah, and pat me on the back in absolute agreement. In fact, my writing this blog had nothing to do with any one of you. It had everything to do with God.
With that said, there’s a few other things I don’t care about.
I don’t care what Bible version you read.
I don’t care if your wife wears pants.
I don’t care if you listen to Contemporary Christian Music.
I don’t care if you go to a liberal mega church.
I don’t care if you go to church once, twice, three, or five times a week.
I don’t care if you drink alcohol till your liver rots.
I don’t care if you cuss like a sailor.
I don’t care if you judge me.
I don’t care if you read romance novels.
I don’t care if you have a MySpace account.
I don’t care if you watch R-rated movies.
I don’t care if you go to the theater.
I don’t care if you work on Sundays.
I don’t care if you listen to “worldly” music.
I don’t care if you wear plaid shorts with a striped t-shirt.
I don’t care.
Why? Because those things in your life are none of my business. What is my business is how I live my life. My business includes doing what I feel the Lord is leading me to do to live a life pleasing to Him, no matter what anyone else says.
I’m not out to make your day. I’m not out to make my mom’s day. I’m not out to make the pastor’s day. I’m out to make God’s day — because that’s all that really matters.
With that said, I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. And, as all living things do, they grow over time – the same goes for spiritual things. When you grow, things change. When you grow spiritual, sometimes your opinions and views change a little here and there.
I’m doing a lot of re-evaluating in my life right now. I’m not asking that you agree or even like the changes that may take place in my life. I only ask that you be patient with me. Because sometimes growing pains hurt…
Have you done any re-evaluating in your life lately?
What are some changes that you’ve made in your life recently?
