Jeremiah 17:5

Thus says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the Lord.

We spend so much time trying to please other people or fit into some image that other people or our society says is cool or “successful.”

But what does God say about us?

Why do we put so much credence in what others think or say and not our Creator? 

There is a great quote in a documentary titled The Human Experience in which a rabbi says something to the effect that life is a grand musical composition…and God is waiting for you to provide your note.

If you are trying to please someone or even God to somehow justify your existenceplease stop!

You are already enough.

You are already perfectly pleasing to God…just as you are.

God loves you as a father or mother loves their child. You don’t have to do anything to earn that love.

But the question is…how will you be the love that you are to the world?

Are you listening to God’s tender voice in your heart…nudging you to be that unique note that only your life can play…or are you listening to human beings?

Love will lead you…if you allow it.
