Like so many of us – I used to be very concerned about what people thought of me, however – when I realized how dangerous it actually was – I let that concern go.

When we have the mindset of worrying about what others say or even think about us – we’re literally giving them control over our lives while wasting a lot of precious time trying to be what they want us to be – while doing everything we can to try and please them – rather than focusing our attention on what God has made us to be.

It’s with this pleasing mentality we’ve somehow adopted, that we’ll eventually find ourselves being manipulated and controlled, which in turn makes us more likely to cave in to criticism, and yes, in grave danger of missing God’s best – all because we’re so worried about what they want – so worried that we can’t even stop to think about what He wants – and that sweet friends – is not good.

The truth is – we can’t please everybody – even God can’t please everybody – only a fool would try to do what He can’t do.

Rejection won’t ruin our life – oh it hurts and it’s not fun – however, unless we let it – it can’t harm us.

So yes, we stop the ugly cycle we’ve been peddling so steadily – for the bottom line is this – nobody can make us feel inferior unless we give them permission – nothing we’ll ever do will make God love us less – nothing we’ll ever do will make God love us more,

He loves us completely right here and right now – just the way we are.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“Let your eyes look directly ahead [toward the path of moral courage] And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you [toward the path of integrity]” Proverbs 4:25
