Not everyone’s gonna like you

30 Jul

Recently, I came across someone who repeatedly asked me questions about my life, and no matter what answer I gave, you could tell that they didn’t like my answers, and they didn’t like me!

Every now and then, (no matter how well we try to treat others,) some people just won’t like us.
They may be jealous, judgmental, or just mean people in general.  And at a certain point, it’s time to stop worrying why people don’t like you, and just focus on the fact that God loves you!  You are a child of God.  You are fearfully and wonderfully made!  Who cares if a few people don’t like you?

When you’re doing God’s will and making a different in lives, there will always be someone who doesn’t like it.

I for one, don’t care if you don’t like me.  I’m going to keep doing God’s will and preaching His word.

I think God wants us to get to a place where we don’t care what others think, and where all that matters is what He thinks.

The word tells us to “seek first the Kingdom of God,” and that’s exactly what I intend on doing.  🙂  Enough with negative naysayers – they don’t matter.

Keep your eyes on the Lord!  So long as you’re pleasing Him, nothing and no one else matters!

Be blessed!

      Thanks Sylvia! Right now the link-up was too much with work, kiddies, etc., (you,) but if I start doing it again, I’ll let you know. I hope you’re having a great week and enjoying your summer. 🙂 Lauren

    Someone told me the other night, that if it doesn’t lead me to Christ and thinking about Him, then it is not something I need to concern myself with..this can definitely apply to what others think of me..I am trying to overcome people pleasing & focus on my love of Christ..

      People will always have an opinion – but thankfully only God’s opinion of us really matters. 🙂
