We crave acceptance, therefore criticism and judgment are hard on us mentally and emotionally. The fact is it hurts! But confronting the criticism and judgment of other people becomes easier when you remember that ultimately it is before your own master you stand or fall ( Romans 14:4) In the end you will answer to God alone.
Criticism and judgment are the devil’s tools. He uses them to stop people from fulfilling their destiny and to steal their liberty and creativity. Paul did not allow the options of others to change his destiny. In Galatians 1:10 he said if he had been seeking popularity with people, he would not have become an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. This statement contains important wisdom. How can we succeed at what God has called us to if we are overly concerned about what other people think?
A woman on the path; chosen by God to see growth EVERYDAY!!!
I am a simple person who enjoys the simple things in life. I am a home body who enjoys being around family and friends. I enjoy the challenges in life because I really believe that they come to make you strong and to prepare you to bring others out of the battles that we ourselves have won.
I am happy being me, as I look back over my life it has not always been easy, yet I am still standing! Praise the Lord!!!!
