Like my friend Zach Williams, I have absolutely changed since my heart failure incident over two years ago. There’s no denying that I’m a different person. Not just because of what happened from a health perspective. A lot of positive changes have happened in the past 24 months.
These events have allowed me to live a fuller life and hopefully inspired others to look twice at their own lives to make necessary changes.
We run around looking for others’ acceptance when we, in reality, also must accept our own life. People often compare their existence to Instagram and attempt to appear just as cool as they do. Just remember, a picture on Instagram does not make you a happy person.
I’m not afraid to admit that a renewed belief heavily influences my recent life changes in God, and listening to Christian music allows me to enjoy worship even more. The lyrics are filled with positive messages of hope, and it is inspiring if you pay attention.
Zach Williams, unbeknown to him, has played a tremendous role in my recovery and my reacquaintance with God.
He released a song back in 2019, ‘Less Like Me,’ and it is about how we can change and help others if you pay close attention. Such messages need to be broadcast more widely, and we need to focus on being more like him – him being Jesus.
A little more like mercy A little more like grace A little more like kindness, goodness, love, and faith A little more like patience A little more like peace A little more like Jesus A little less like me
During the COVID-19 lockdowns, we must look out for each other and help where we can. Giving others attention gives them a sense that someone cares, which will reduce their mental decline. We need each other to fight the lockdown loneliness.
We can be a little more like Jesus, and a little less like ourselves.
