5 Reasons You Suck At Life and Why and Its OK


You are not special. God doesn't center around your amazing existence to make sure everything turns out the way you imagine it to. In fact, we can all admit that many times it feels like this separate entity called "Life" is against us. As if we live in a strange and unwelcoming world constantly driving us out and pushing us over the edge of the Abyss of Chaos and disorder.
Rather you are deep in your faith with Christ or are somewhat new to the life with Jesus, prepare to be a little offended yet enlighten to why you suck at life, The root problem of such reality, and five factual and Biblical reasons for this reality that may make you cringe as you read, but will have the seed of Biblical and Eternal encouragement.
This Article is not to make you feel good, more or less, to allow you to stop 'trying-so-hard' and rest in your newness of life with Christ. I warn you, since you most likely have a short attention span, t…

Four Reasons Young Adults Should Not Dream!

Image
I am no billionaire or millionaire but I am one on the journey towards being a young entrepreneur that can hopefully add value for others in society one way or another. As encouraged as it is to have a BIG PLAN and HUGE VISION, as many in the self-help world would explain, A big vision without smaller and micro-managed goals is just a pipe dream. As young adults, it is important to dream but to also be grounded in reality and take action on a day to day basis. Many young aspiring dreamers, such as myself, have fallen to the 'Dream Curse". It is having so much Ideas, Theories, and desired outcomes, but getting stuck in idleness when it comes time to take basic and BORING actions. Since we have a 'dream' but no smaller and realistic goals to get to it, we become idle and lazy which results in self-sabotage, self-judgment, and worst STAGNATION.
With the popularity and growth of self-help, also comes self-sabotage for many of us. We become addicted to the 'feeling…

Life is Not As Hard As We Make It: Zack's Testimony

Why do we do what we do?  Why do we go to church? Why do we love people? Why do we hate people? Why do we drink or smoke? Why do we live the way that we live, or is it even the way that we want to be living? We do what we want to and live the way we chose to live for many different reasons.  Some of us do it because we are depressed, some because we are simply bored.  I want to share with you guys a little bit about my story and how my life has began to change. I grew up going to church every Sunday.  My parents are both saved.  I was expected to behave and treat other people with respect.  As I got older I wanted to fit in.  I started becoming a fake person and leaving old friendships for new ones.   High school came around and I wanted to become someone that I wasn't to fit in.  I had a lot of fun doing this in the moment, but eventually I became miserable.   I began drinking.  I couldn't do any drugs in high school because the school that I went to drug tested.   Once I gradua…

Why Living In The NOW should be your daily goal!

Image
Our minds are constantly racing. A fact every human being experiences to be true. Think of this moment as a brief example. Relax and feel your breath and body and be as present as you can be. You'll notice very quickly that thoughts about the future such as, "I need to get this done" "What should I eat for lunch" other thoughts and critics such as "This is boring" "Im uncomfortable in this position" or thoughts about the past. Either way it is the same,the mind is never truly 'here' it is always seeking to be somewhere else, some distant future that seems better than the present one, but once you get there its just another 'Now'.

As a follower of Christ, imagine how your personal life would look like if you lived in the present as intentionally as you could? This answer may vary, but one thing that is sure is that we would hear and know God's voice and will in every scenario. Being present isn't just a fancy term nor…

Run!

Run!
That silent demon Like parasite consumption Grab a hold of your thoughts In its wrath, it controls your functions.
Flesh. It screams. Keep going. Keep going. You’ve got nothing to lose. It’s already growing. He’s watching you. You’re falling. Deeper and deeper.
Run! No…no..not away from Me. TO Me. My child, can’t you see? You’re trying to fight this battle, without Me. One blow and you’re knocked out, cold.
Run! TO Me. Call unto Me! Look at My Hand! Reach! You yearn to scream out for Me, I know it. But that pride…that pride, you show it.
That silence. My child, break free. Come to Me. I am your refuge, your rock. Why hide? Why? I know you. I’m no stranger. From my Hands I created you. Stop looking back. Stop looking away. Don’t hide your face. Look at Me.
You think I can’t see? Stop trying to avoid in order to fill A void Only with Me will it be filled. Talk to Me.
Say it. Say the word. Lust. You’re fighting it, I know. Open up to Me. I want to see you grow.
The next time Lust knocks on your door, Run! TO Me.…

100 to 0 Real Quick

I mean it when I say I've learned more about myself, school, and life in general in just the 4 short months I've been in college than 4 years of high school EVER taught me. Anyways, back to the topic.

Typical Phone Conversation with my mom:

Mom: Hey baby, how are you?
Me: I'm good.
Mom: ok. How are your classes coming?
Me: They're going alright..
*continued small talk*

I never have in-depth conversations with my parents about school unless I made a really good grade or some cool event happened. That's where the problem comes in. I would never discuss if I'm struggling or having problems. I would hide it because I was afraid of being lectured or being told what I'm doing wrong. The real problem is...I'm too prideful to let people know I'm struggling. So I try to cover it up and hope I fix it. Bad idea. Because that very mentality is what led me to end up in the current rut I'm in with my grades. Again, I thank God for opportu…

How Boredom Can Make Or Break You.

Image
90% of our actions come from boredom. It is crucial to make use of our God-given moments. It is easy to self-indulge ourselves with lofty entertainment and self-gratifying activity. In the end, they leave us empty and seeking for more. Those who succeed in their calling are not only those who believe in Christ but SUBMIT to his will to discipline oneself.
Our culture was built on a self-suffecient spirit. When arriving to the New World, we mastered our aguralcutlure, social, military, industries, and technological skills. It is the reason our American ancestors called for 'independence' from Great Britain in the first place.

We are more advanced than ever as a society. Major changes in technology and scientific instruments, have helped us live more comfortable lives. The issue lies in the self-indulging distractions this has caused. We have become more concerned with the next ppv event than our own personal lives and relationship with our Higher self, Christ.
