My dearest child,
Why do you worry so about what others think of you? To know or to try to know their thoughts is not your job nor your responsibly; it is Mine (Psalm 94:11)! You worry so much about their thoughts toward you that you completely lose focus of Me! Seek Me and I will give you strength (Psalm 105:4)!
Avoid and resist the temptation to compare your life, status, and circumstances to those around you; you only see one side (Galatians 1:10). Life is like an embroidered piece of cloth; one side is perfectly stitched and is a beautiful work of art, while the other side has tangles, knots, and stray threads. I see both sides; while you may think that others lives are perfect, you see one side. I see both sides of your life as I do others. As I know your thoughts and struggles, so I know theirs. Focus on Me, darling and do not seek man’s approval; seek My face!
Throughout this life, you will have distractions, trials, and challenges begging for you to conform to this world’s patterns and traditions (Romans 12:2) rather than to press in and to be transformed through My word; My gift to you! Stay strong and press on. I know life is hard and things do not make sense right now, but I know! If you knew why these things are happening, right now you would not understand My entire plan. I am with you now, and I am in tomorrow already. I know your history, your present, and your future (Jeremiah 29:11)! You may not understand now, but in time you will…just trust Me!
With all of My love,
Your Father, God
