Service was definitely on point today. Bishop spoke from 1 Peter 5:5-10 in which he encouraged our souls. One of the things he discussed was not allowing the thoughts and opinions of others to effect us. Furthermore, getting to a point where we say, “I don’t care”… literally.
In life, we often give credit to the wrong people. These people tend to control how we think, what we say and how we act because we are afraid of their perception of us. Know that God does not have you here living for other people.
He has you here living for Him. To give Him the glory, to teach and preach about His goodness. If Jesus was persecuted because he followed after God, how much more you? We are simply here to do what he has called us to do and are enjoying some of the perks along the way.
We have to stop being fearful of the unknown and not allow people to be apart of our life that shouldn’t. Life is truly too short to live it through the eyes of someone else. Focus on the right things and be true to yourself and who God made you to be. When you do, you will ALWAYS win.
