I wanted to let you know I am a Christian. I was thinking about committing suicide when I happened to scroll across your video, 'What Do I Believe In?' It gave me hope and I really appreciate that. You inspire me to put more of my faith in God. And another thing, I love you.

Hey I love you so much. I really do. God is so loving and caring and he wants to comfort and take care of you. Please don’t ever let this world beat you up! Run to the source of all strength and safety which is Jesus. He’s there to take care of you. I’m so stoked I could be here for you! Praying for you <3 

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have PEACE. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33

But do you find it hard to love bad people when you try to love everybody?

I used to. But then I realized we’re all “bad” people. We all sin. We all mess up. And that God loves everyone. So I have no right not to. Once I realized that, it became very easy.

HI Josh! I was scrolling through youtube on my phone and I came across the video "What do you believe in" in Joey's favorites. I decided to watch it. I didn't even know who you were until I met you at PressPlay DC... At the end of that event you said (Which stuck out to me) "Everything I do, everything I say, all of my actions,everything, I do for my Lord and Savior" I have looked up to you since thank you for sticking up in your faith so strongly.You've helped me with my faith a lot. ilysm :)

Hey Josh, do you know Romans 1:16? Its a great scripture for all chirstians to have in their head. Also if you didn't know already, 116 is a christian rap group that I was recently opened up too. I don't know how you feel about rap, but you should so check out some of those guys like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and KB. They got some amazing stuff, and I know you wont be disappointed. Thanks and keep on with the love!

I learned about Romans 116 from Lecrae a few years back actually. I love those guys!

if you could go back in time to your 15-year-old self, what would you say to yoursefl?

That’s the age when I started making videos on the internet. I would tell myself to “NOT listen to what others tell you. Do what you love and you will be successful” 

I listened to the opinions of EVERYONE when I was 15. It changed my view on a lot…. for the worse. I was embarresed of my videos which caused me to have less of an impact on the people around me.

Josh, in your video "What Do You Believe In" you called yourself weak for listening to all the bullies, but I don't think you were weak! If you were weak you would have stopped making videos and gave up doing what you love because of all the mean stuff haters would say! But, you didn't! You made videos for your fans anyway and to me, that's pretty strong of you! I'm not trying to say you're wrong, I just wanna let you know what I think! I love you. :) <3

You’re way too incredible. Thank you. The emotions I went through in high school were the worst. It hurt so badly every time I heard somebody wanting to play my videos in front of the class. It was hell. I would even hide these emotions from all my family and friends because I was embarrassed to say how lonely I was. But somewhere in me, I KNEW how much I loved making the videos and how I wanted to make people happy so I let go of what these kids were saying and pushed on. I pushed every single day. High school was the worst and I didn’t enjoy it one bit. But I KNEW after high school, it would get better and it did. AND now I’m so happy I kept pushing and letting go of what these kids said. 

Thank you for this encouraging post. I’m stoked I stuck with it so I could make you happy. That’s the most important part.

To anyone reading this now who’s still in high school and getting beat up… I went through the same thing. NEVER GIVE UP. It gets better. You’re put through these rough spots to grow! Keep your head up. You’re bigger than the bully trying to mess with you. It’s their loss. Live your life to the fullest and seek happiness.

You are such an inspirational person!! I love how you are always smiling and happy! How can I do the same, at times people can put me down and I hold on to that negativity. How do you always stay positive and love everyone??

It’s easy. You mention how you “hold on to that negativity”. Well, my answer is you need to let go of it. Whenever someone puts me down and hurts me, I immediately let it go and forgive them. I know that if I hold on to it, it will begin to eat me up and change me as a person. let it go and LOVE. You’ll slowly begin to see your life changing for the better. It’s the best feeling ever!

What advice would you give to someone who is trying to focus their joy and delight in Jesus and Jesus only? I know it sounds kind of silly but it's honestly something that I struggle with a lot

Constantly walking by the spirit. If you aren’t in the spirit, you are in the flesh. And those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the spirit" Romans 8:5

Now I pray every single day asking God for his strength to lead me on this narrow road following Jesus at every moment. I strive to live obediently to God at all times following all his commands. The moment you decide to push the world aside, you’ll notice how much Joy and peace will fill you. God is so faithful and he knows what you strive for. He knows your struggles. Reveal them all to Him and he will take over.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires." Galatians 5:22-23

The more you push into God, the less and less you will focus your joy and delight in the world. The world will always throw you down. Our God will never.

hi Josh i am also a believer of God and Jesus :) and i am wondering how do you deal with haters and bullys?

Love them. Love them. Love them. and Love them. It’s the last thing they expect so they’re thrown off and then most likely give up because in this situation, you win. You can never go wrong with love. That’s what I do. Some lady gave me the middle finger today randomly on the road haha I was so thrown off. I could’ve been mad about it but instead, I drove past her and smiled. ( it made her even more mad lol ) life is fun. Enjoy it :)
