Who are you, deep down?
Are you the person you had always hoped you’d be?
Why or why not?
I have always been one to support authenticity. You, being you. I don’t get hung up on what other people think of me.
But that wasn’t always the case.
I’m a recovering people pleaser. I still love to bring a smile to a person’s face, and do all I can to make their day brighter. But my goal in life isn’t to win the affection or attention of others.
My goal is to please and bring glory to God, every day. I used to think this was really hard to do. After all, how do you please the One who is holy and fully righteous?
You please Him by using the gifts and abilities He has given you to show His love to people. You please Him when you go out of your way to help someone. Spend time with Him in prayer and quietness. Realize that he delights in you!
