Influenced

Hi. 👋🏻

My name is Daisy, and I don’t want to be an influencer.

I don’t want to be an influencer because I’m human, and humans fail.

They fail miserably.

Checkout Merriam’s definition of influence: the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.

Y’all, that’s a pretty heavy burden to bear if you really think about it.

You know what I do want to be though? I want to be a follower – a follower of Jesus Christ.

The truth of the matter is that as humans we will be influenced by someone or something.

And if I’m gonna be influenced, let me be influenced by Jesus. Let me be influenced by the words penned in that leather bound book written all those years ago.

Let me follow Him.

Jesus, influence me to be more like you.

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Matthew 16:24
