“The Truth”, Not Interested In What I Have

By: Heather Mincer

Do you remember that feeling in high school when you didn’t make the cheerleading squad or maybe it was the soccer team, or when you went to a friends house and they had such a cool bedroom when yours was meekly decorated with a hand me down comforter and pillows…. sometimes being a Christian can feel a little like that when we first meet people. One of the difficulties of being with other Christians is that we tend to bring revisit old ways of thinking with those relationships.  Cultural, economical, and social status can determine how we feel and act, even when we are with those who share the same faith and Heavenly Father.  There have been times that I have felt discouraged and sadly inadequate because of the economical or social status of other believers, like I was not good enough to make the team even though I was on the “team”, or that my homemade curtains were deficient to so and so’s Pottery Barn decor.  


The Father is not interested in what I have but what is in my heart and how I seek to praise and glorify Him. My concern about my status, economical and social, stems from not being satisfied with what the Father has given me.  I do find it hard sometimes to fit in and feel part of the “team” but ultimately it is not because of what I have or don’t have or what others have.  It is because I am not resting in who the Father made me to be within the “team”.  Maybe I am a hand me down comforter, but that may just be what someone else needs.

A born and raised New Yorker, I come from fields, falls, and familiarization. You may have heard the term “close but yet so far” growing up in western New York, I can honestly say I have experienced a life near the city lights but not “in it”. My writing style consists of anything and everything that my mind whips up, meaning I’m a powerhouse of ideas and intuition. I am currently working towards and master's in journalism and eventually will grace the covers and pages of every major magazine and newsletter. I hope to become a great writer who stands for excellence, reliability, and intrigue.
