“I guess you’re supposed to be holier than thou, now, because all you seem to do is talk about God,” is a statement I’m often met with. “No, I’m not, but now that I have your attention, I’ll never stop talking about Him,” is usually my response. I’ve mentioned this before, but it needs to be said again. When I first started NBL 4 years ago, I didn’t have a focused agenda of talking solely about God. I’ve always known I had an inventory of testimonies and stories that others would identify with and find comfort in. I will not apologize for professing my love for God and Christ or sharing God’s word, no matter who feels uncomfortable by it or don’t agree with it. I can remember starting out, one of my very first followers were an atheist, and they had the name as their profile identifier.
My immediate thoughts were to remove this person, but God told me not to. Perhaps they came to mock me or blasphemy God, even, but no matter their agenda (or not), I allowed them to stay. Many months later, I no longer saw atheist whenever I accessed my follower count, so I assumed they had enough of God (or at least reading about Him) and left. Unbeknownst to me, they never left; they just changed. I don’t take offense when people judge me based off what I write. If they knew what I went to get to the point of trusting and believe God the way I do, maybe they too would talk about Him more than they question me. It doesn’t matter if they feel I’m the last person (or least) that should be sharing God’s word. It doesn’t matter if they think I’m not qualified. I won’t ever stop talking about God, especially when His word is causing others to get closer to Him and be more like Him.
No matter what you do (good or bad), people will find a way to criticize you. When they do, let them. But don’t ever let them stop you from doing the right thing (whether they agree with it or not).
