The prompt word has been posted for tonight for this edition of Five Minute Friday. It is: Reach.
And now we begin:
I have reached a point in my life where I no longer worry about the opinions others may have of me. When once it used to bother me when I would hear people whispering about me and giving me those up and down looks, now I just take a deep breath in and give it to God. I realize that I am not in control of any one else. I am only in control of myself and my actions. If you haven’t reached this point yet, give it time. As you grow older, things of this sort will not matter as much any more. You won’t sit up at night losing sleep over this like you once did. You won’t try to go out of your way to reach this person, to change their opinion of you, to make things better like before. You will just simply pray for them and hand it all to God to work out. It used to bug me when someone didn’t like me before. I wanted everyone to like me. The reality of it is that not every one will. I like me and God likes me, and that, my dear friends, is enough!
