When Others' Raise their Swords to You!
An audience of one does not marry with people-pleasing or the fear of others. This is liberating.
At those 'T' intersections of choice, turn only to what is right before Him, even when the world may raise its swords to you.
Allow Jesus to witness your thirst for His approval, and your hunger for His affirmation.
Aim to live each day under Jesus' smile.
Seek to be only found in the approving arms of Jesus ... this is all that is needed of you!
So, precious child, this day I ask you, would you serve man and man's recognition and obtain man's reward, so fleeting like a vapor? ~ Jesus#
Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:6)
The season arrives for all when blessings, cursings, judgements and envy will cease - but the Lord's opinion stands forever.
For decades now (to this very day) I have longed for 'well done good and faithful servant' - can we share this please?
