Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today, I was talking to my bestie “E” when the Holy Ghost began to remind me of how far I have grown in my love relationship with Him. You’ll be surprised how much you’ve changed when you actually sit down and think about your life. I was really surprised at how far I have come out of the lands of people-pleasing and insecurities, into a place of security and assurance in who I am. I used to need people’s approval of my actions and lifestyle. I used to need people’s validation of my accomplishments to feel like I actually achieved something in life. I used to need to be celebrated by certain people to feel important, cherished, valued and loved. What the Holy Spirit helped me realize is that I don’t have that need anymore. I don’t need people to be my best me, nor do I need people to dream or to validate me. There is no need for certain individuals to be in my life, nor is there a need for certain opinions to live my life. There’s no need…
Once I became complete in Christ, I made up my mind that I was going to live life the way God wanted me to- whether people agreed with my choices or not. I made up my mind that I was going to be happy, whether people celebrated me or not. I decided that I was going to enjoy my accomplishments, whether people saw it fit to validate me or not. I was going to blog, whether a lot of people followed my blog or not.
I am in a place in my life where I am going to be the best me that I can be regardless of the opinions of others. There’s no need for extra validation or extra affirmation, there is really no need...
Friends, If God has approved of your ministry or of your vision to changing to the world- you don’t need the approval of others. If God has validated you, you don’t need to be validated by anyone else. If God has affirmed you and He thinks highly of you, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Period. Live your life to the fullest, and realize that sometimes there’s no need for certain people to be in your life. Live your life pleasing unto God and He’ll make your dreams come true. What can people do? Can they do more than God? I don’t think so but hey those are just my thoughts. I love you guys and I hope you guys have a great evening!!!
Until next time,
