I wanted to make a quick little post today, it’s been something on my heart.
Why do we live our lives for the approval of people? Why do we care so much about what they say about us? I lived my life trying to please people, doing things to make others happy. Wondering what others would think before doing anything. This put me in a crazy cycle of anxiety, always SO worried. It was so exhausting. But as I have been growing in my faith and understanding God for who He really is, my wanting to please people mentality has changed. Here is the reason why.
He is ALL I need. He is who I will live for. My life is His. All that I do I want it to bring glory to His kingdom. Nothing else matters.
The things people feel about your life, the things they think they are entitled to say, guess what? You don’t have to believe it. You don’t have to accept it as truth. If you know the things that God has said to be true then their words shouldn’t matter one bit. He has told us who we are, and what we are to do, that is what we live our lives off of, not the thoughtless words of others. Don’t hold tight to those things, don’t let them be the gauge of how your feeling or what you do. Don’t be a slave to that any longer. There is SO MUCH FREEDOM being completely His in every aspect of your life.
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.
