Problematic Bieber

As a youth worker, I was delighted to gain insight via twitter this morning regarding problems that face young people today.

One might have thought that this consisted of things such as annoying teachers, day long relationships or lack of spots, but no, apparently, the biggest teenage problem is not being noticed by Justin Bieber.

Youth workers and Councillors across the country are now holding training days and conferences to deal with this epidemic! How can we help Bieber to recognise his fans?

Now, like him or hate him, you can’t blame him for not noticing little people when he has 22,583,546 followers / Stalkers on twitter. The poor guy must get tweeted every second of the day with countless proposals and hate mail – At first, not from the same person, but when he ignores the proposal – it all goes down hill.

I was recently told by a young person I work with that at a certain point in his concerts, the stewards will walk along the isles of the crowd and pick one girl who is invited to sit on stage whilst Justin sings to her, personally. The young person I was speaking too longed to be picked as she expressed her deep love for Bieber. I must admit, I chuckled in response.

He clearly has something that appeals to the teenage market, in particularly, teenage girls. I can’t decide whether it’s his looks, his voice or style of music, but whatever it is, people seem to either love it or hate it.

However, whilst you may not have been noticed by Bieber, you have been noticed by someone greater.

Not in a romantic sense but like that of a parent who adores their child.

You have been noticed by someone who is available 24/7.

By someone who became one of us, who was willing to die on our behalf, so that we could connect with our creator God.

Jesus Christ has noticed you. He’s taken an interest in doing life with you.

I wonder, have you noticed him?


PS – I hope Bieber notices this blog. I’ve bigged him up and all!

If you have enjoyed reading this post – I’d be really grateful if you would help get this message further by sharing it on your facebook / twitter profile. Cheers :)
