Friends who help along the way with words that encourage or gently guide me are my inspiration for today. They are one of my 10,000 reasons to bless the Lord. Yesterday, I received this wise, gentle reminder from a friend —
Worrying about what other people think is the quickest way to forget what God thinks!
It seemed to me this is what scripture says too and look what I found . . .
25Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.Proverbs 29:25
15My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.Psalm 25:15
For a short few hours, I got sidetracked worrying about what others thought. I needed the reminder that my trust is in the Lord, not in what others think, say or do.
Perhaps you needed this reminder today as well!
Have a happy weekend!
