Be all you can be, and if thats not good enough fake it

I was reading Thur my Tv Guide that I got for free I would never pay money for it, lol.
Here are the line up I found

1 American Idol
2 Hells Kitchen
3 Shot at Love with Tila Tequila
4 Wife Swap
5 I know My Kids a Star!
6 Survivor
7 The Real world
8 Americans Next Top Model

I read the little write ups about each of this shows. Like George Washington can not tell I lie, I have even sat and watch a few of these shows.
But I begin to see a trend. 5 of the shows are about winning moneybeing number one the best.
Number 3 is about a Bisexual woman looking for love from either sex. By the way this is the second season guess she did not find it the first time. The Real World which has turned into a real money maker for MTV by throwing 6 young people into a house to live and work together for a few months has turned into a soft porn where it is more about who hooks up with who and how drunk you were when it happen.. Sadly that is the picture of the REAL WORLD in this day in age for a lot of young people. One of the trends I saw in each of these shows is that is it all about being the most beautiful, smartest, cuties, sexiest.
In 1 Samuel 16 verse 7 is says this
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, "Don't look at how handsome Eliab is or how tall he is, because I have not chosen him. God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart."

I am so happy to know that I don't have to be good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, tall enough, thin enough to be chosen by God for a reason. In his eyes I am the best, number one, his child. Made just like he wants me to be. We live in a world where each and every day we are told you have to try harder to be this or that.
Amy Grant sings a song the words say" All I ever have to be is what you made in me to be. "
This world we live in needs to hear that message, you don't have to be anything other then what God has made you to be. What presure is off of us when we understand that God has made in us what we need to be great! That is not to say we should not study or try to impove our selfs.
2 Timothy 2:15 (New Living Translation)
15 Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker,
one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.

The key in that verse is work hard so you can have approval from God not from the world.
I for one this we have been brain washed by the boob tube thinking we are not good enough for anything. Great lie the devil has sold us, people who are enough for nothing don't do much but sit around trying to think of ways to be better. If i were like so and so, then I could really do something great. So we just sit at home being a cough potatoe. Cough potatoes don't make history they become history..... My challage to you is rememeber the only person whos approval you need is Gods and the way to know you have it is by getting to know him and what he has made you for. No worries about wither of not you are up for the challage he made you for it!!!
Go make history ..................................
