I DO NOT CARE anymore what you think about me, I am running after God. I used to care too much what others thought of me, and how I could please people; but not now. I am running after God’s ways. I don’t care what you do or how you do it; I am running after my Lord’s commands. I could care less what you think my motives are or how you compare me to another; I am running after His precepts. Talk bad about me, slander and abuse my name; I don’t care. I am running after God.
Friend, I love you, but I love Him more. I no longer have the time or the energy to get caught up in your offenses, I have a race to run. I cannot let the distractions of the enemy hinder me and I no longer believe the lies. The devil has thrown it all at me and I’m still standing. I shout out, “I will not be moved!” I have set my face like a flint to do the work that He has called me to and no person or devil in hell is going to stop me.
My mind is set and my feet are firmly planted on the Rock of my Salvation. It may get difficult to breath on the narrow path that high road, but it’s the only road I’ll ever travel. You’re welcome to walk this path with me, and we can travel it together encouraging one another and praying for the other to succeed. I’ll lift you up when you fall. But if you try to trip me up, you’ll find yourself left behind. I am running after God.
“One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.” Psalms 27:4
It’s taken me a while to get here. I still fight my feelings and emotions. I fight my flesh daily. I want people to like me and approve of me. But His approval means more. I have to remind myself that this is my race to run. I daily renew my mind to His ways and thoughts. This is my testimony. I will not be moved.
What about you?
