Don’t let them put out the fire of your passion;
Don’t let them pour cold water on your infectious joy;
Don’t let them destroy your confidence in Christ;
Don’t let them make your life miserable through their negativity;
Don’t pay attention to their cynicism and derogatory comments;
Don’t let them define who you are.
You are a child of the Almighty God, the Creator of heaven and earth.
You are forgiven, and were bought at a high price – the blood of Jesus.
You are justified and declared righteous.
You are chosen, equipped and sent.
You are magnificently created in His image.
Stand up. Stand firm. Be who Christ as ordained you to be.
“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16
