Written on this date, two years ago.
This was an amazing message for me this morning. I am reminded that as long as I am doing what He wants me to do, and do it according to His standards…it’s a success, regardless of the outcome.
Very often when I get busy and distracted, I focus too much on the world’s metrics of success – Company sales quotas, profit projections, anticipated returns on investment, how many followers and likes are on Facebook/Instagram, and the list goes on.
While they are helpful to a certain degree, most of the time these standards are set by industry norms, other peoples’ expectations, and other irrelevant and temporary benchmarks.
I am NOT normal (clearly lol!), I should only be catering to an audience of One, my guiding post should be eternal and unchanging one, and I am uniquely-equipped to pursue a unique purpose that cannot be measured nor compared.
God’s will done God’s way never lacks God’s support; obedience – not the end result – is success; and when I don’t have to worry about what happens, I stress out less and can focus on the task at hand.
Have a great Monday, All.
