What really matters.

"What really matters?" It is written inside of my bible. It is a thought that often travels through my mind. It is an idea that constantly reminds me of my actions. It is a saying that always helps me set my priorities. The only problem is, sometimes I don't know "what really matters." Sometimes I'm not sure if I want to do "what really matters." Sometimes I feel like maybe I'm wrong about "what really matters." I do know one thing though. I know, for a fact, that if I cannot figure these things out, if I don't want to do it, if I'm not sure, or if I might be wrong that I can always turn to the Lord, and He will show me where my path should be going.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6

But really, what does really matter? Well, I know that people put a lot of effort into their appearance. They care so much about what other people think of them. I mean, its perfectly fine to a point. You should care somewhat what others think of you, because if you didn't, you would just look like a low-life hobo who doesn't shower or have any kind of hygiene habits. So its fine for a while, but some people are obsessed. They not only work on their physical appearance, but they lie and manipulate in order to create a repuation for themselves that they think is flattering. Why? When people find out about the lies that you've been telling they are not going to want to be around you.
So what really matters is to be yourself. To not let the the pressures that the world puts on your shoulders get you down. Don't give in to doing something just because you see the rest of the world doing it. I guess I need to say this to myself as well. I'm not near perfect, and I often let other people talk me into doing things.

What really matters to me is my relationship with Christ, my indescribable family, my unbelievable friends, the relationship I have with people, and the way I live my life as a Christian. My faith is my life. And THAT is what really matters.
