Hey y'all. Welcome to the second Motivation Monday.
There's been something on my mind about the world in general. Something I think we all need to hear.
This might get a little rant-y and some of you might not like what I have to say, but I need to say it. This message is something that's been on my heart. Motivation isn't always positive quotes and happy messages. Sometimes it's just something that makes you think. And that's what I intend to do today.
On November 8, 2016, America elected Donald Trump as president of the United States. This sent a lot of people into protest, protest that only happens when a Republican is elected. Now, I'm not going to state my side of the political spectrum here, mostly because instead of conforming to one party or another, I like to make my own opinions and decide things for myself.
There were many marches and each protest left destruction, whether it is believed or not, there is proof of destruction. Everyone has been hateful to the president.
What the nation has failed to realize is no matter what, he was elected. Our morality as a nation is terrible. We're doing things that shouldn't be done. We're trying to disrupt the natural order that God made.
Just recently, some things have taken place that are against President Trump. Some things you might have seen in the news that are honestly just too disgusting to mention here. No matter who the president is, this act is not okay.
And I know there will be people who don't agree with me. That's okay. I want us all to think for ourselves, not conform to something society wants us to conform to. And if you do agree with me, again, these were probably already your opinions that you made with your own mind.
As teens, we are assumed to rebel against what our parents believe. Or its assumed that we will agree with everything our parents say because we don't know otherwise. How about we break that barrier? Sure, there are things we will agree with and believe because of our parents. But we might also form our own opinions. We are separate people.
Society today conforms. Most younger people conform to what others want us to believe. Schools don't teach the necessary things anymore, nor have they really ever. And homeschoolers, like myself, are looked down upon and thought to be stupid or sheltered from ever knowing the cruel facts of life.
My heart is heavy because of the violence and disrespect. Hollywood thinks it can set the standard and have us worship the actors and actresses. The government has gotten too corrupt with power and wants to control every aspect of our lives.
Everyone wants to run around saying #notmypresident when in reality, unless you're not a citizen of America, President Donald Trump is your president whether you like him or you don't. People who didn't like Obama didn't act like this. They didn't destroy property, hurt others, or riot out on the streets all the time.
Again, I'm not saying what my side is. I'm stating what I see and how I see it. I'm not against protest. I'm against violence and looting. I'm against the evil that people become as they gain too much power.
God is the ruler of the earth. Not President Trump. Not any of the foreign leaders. Not you. Not me. God. He sent Jesus to die for us, to make us new. He didn't send Jesus to die so we could riot and kill. He didn't sent Jesus to die so we could destroy.
The Dial of Good and Evil is pointing way to close to evil and it's becoming a big problem.
I guess what I'm trying to say is people are going out in the world believing everything they're told instead of researching or forming their own opinion. It's about time we start deciding for ourselves what we believe. And some people like to say they keep their religion and politics separate.
There is no way you can do that. Your beliefs affect everything you do and say. Sometimes we mess up. A lot of times, we mess up. We're human, but we have to repent. We have to realize when we're wrong. Part of becoming teens and young adults is realizing it's time to own up to our own actions.
I believe in y'all. I know you can do it. You can think for yourself. Lead by example and show the world you don't need its standards. You set your own standards according to God. Or, if you aren't a believer, you can at least take away from this to think for yourself.
So, tell me in the comments what you think about all the stuff going on lately. As I said in the first post of my blog, fighting, cursing, and ugliness will not be tolerated. However, I encourage healthy debate. Having a difference of opinions makes us unique and brings a different perspective to all of our eyes. No rude, snarky comments. No negativity. Lift each other up.
On that note, I'll end my rant here. Hopefully you've taken something away from this. Let me know in the comments what you've taken away. Thanks for sticking with me.
God bless y'all. 😁
