I think you can follow Jesus & still be a complicated eccentric individual. I enjoy the freedom to be myself. I can be me and Jesus still loves me unconditionally. Of course He knows me better than I know myself right?
I can’t be someone I’m not just for the sake of appearing to be a Christ follower.
I spend time with all kinds of people, most of which do not share my beliefs. I listen to all kinds of music. I have two kids from two different fathers * not proud of that 🙁 but Jesus still loves me and my mess.
I’m sure God already knows all this and all my feelings. The good news is that Jesus loves all of us regardless of where we are at. He just wants a pure heart and genuine intentions. He wants me to love Him and love others. No matter who they are, what they believe or how they act. Just love them.
Life can be hard. Like really hard. But I know the issues I struggle with are the same as everyone else regardless of if they admit them or not. I know that I’m not able to love perfectly on my own. That’s why I go to God. I hope no one ever makes you feel bad or like a “Jesus freak” for being Christian.
Just try every day to love like Jesus and know that some days will be better than others. Thanks for reading.
