Thoughtful Thursday - Creator and Critics
Posted by Linda McQuinn Carlblom
It's easy to get caught up in what people think. We like people to like us. But there will always be naysayers, those who just don't get you, or think you're not living up to your potential. They may even be right on occasion.
But regardless, keep your eyes on your Creator. It's in Him that you live and move and have your being (Acts 17:28 NIV). It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks of you. You are made in the very image of God. That's gotta be good, right? He gives your life purpose and meaning. He loves you in all your imperfection, even when the critics are right. Keep looking to Him as He refines you into pure gold.
God will handle your critics. Your job is to keep looking at Him. Soon others will follow your gaze.
