Last week I talked about being overwhelmed — from the comments and feedback I received about that topic, I really felt that I needed to talk this week about…
Trying to p l e a s e everyone can cause us to feel overwhelmed! When we put too much value on the opinions, judgements, and needs of others — attempting to “measure-up” to their standards — life can get out of control! There is simply no way we will ever be able to satisfy everyone.
There is One true, solid, and firm measuring stick that we need to aim to please, God. When we seek His will and His plan for our lives; when we set out to put a SMILE on His face — we can find peace and comfort despite the noise we hear from those around us.
I understand that there are times when we need to consider what other’s are saying and suggesting, but take those things prayerfully to the Lord…
seek Him first, His wisdom, His understanding
…then take the appropriate action.
Question: How many measuring sticks are you trying to “measure-up” to? How can you focus on the ONE that truly counts? Share your comment by clicking here.
