We all have different versions of success.
You can’t tell me that I’m not successful because I haven’t completed the list of things that makes someone successful in your eyes.
I don’t need to put anyone down to get to the top, cause I’m not trying to head that way.
I’m not the kind of person that wants to be above anyone, or on top of the world.
God knows my heart.
I just want to help anyone that is struggling alone, hurting inside, experienced pain like me, shame like me, been played on like games like me.
Happiness and success means something different to everyone.
Money isn’t success to me.
Big house or heaps of cars is not success to me.
If you have it all and keep it all to yourself, that is not success to me.
Greed is killing our world.
Hate is burning our love and judgement is bruising our peace.
Jesus is my focus, heaven is my goal ❤
I tend to let the applause from people get in the way of why started this page in the first place. I told myself from the start, whether I inspire 1 person or 100, I’ll continue on with my journey. But some days I feel like I’m doing something wrong when I don’t get as many likes or lose followers and people message me negative things about my page or myself, but after speaking with my little sister this morning, she inspired this quote by telling me to “Follow my passion and not the praise”.
That hit home for me this morning. That I’ve been allowing the naysayers and the soul slayers deter me from sharing the work God is doing in my life. I’ve also let my pride and vanity hinder my growth by some times making it about myself and not about God.
So I wanted to share a little message of encouragement to anyone that has started a new journey, on a mission, or just unsure where to start, to remember that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us” (Philippians 4:13) and no matter what, let that praise go to God. Let your story be for His glory. “For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.” (Galatians 6:3). We are nothing without God. ❤🙌
