It amazes me that some people make their living being “influencers,” it’s a real profession nowadays! How crazy is that?! This profession always makes me wonder about who the true influencers in my life are. Who is speaking in my life and guiding my decisions? Sure, this includes those who I seek out when I need advice, but I think it oftentimes goes a lot deeper than that.
I watch a lot of television and movies and read a lot of books. So these various pieces of media are constantly shaping my view of myself and the world. I have learned that I can’t watch certain shows because it negatively affects my mood—that’s influence. I’ve also seen how my view of the world around me has changed as I have diversified my library. There are so many people out there who are influencing us, our families, our friends, and our culture. Let’s pray for them today!
Today, I am praying for:
- Influencers in my culture (specifically Hollywood, celebrities, authors, etc.)
- God’s promotion of his people to speak truth in love to those in power
- God-honoring art to be created, celebrated, and distributed
- Those influencing our culture to fall madly in love with Jesus
Who influences you the most?
What is God saying to you?
