When I feel Blah....

{Praise & Worship Wednesday}

Just the other day, I was having a conversation with a dear friend. About approval. How I obsess and how it makes me nervous. How I worry and how it infects me. It makes me over think...me. It makes me over analyze, relationships. It makes me BLAH. Beyond my belief. Beyond my control. It makes me spin...out of control!

It's the enemy. I know.

That same day I am blogging, fb-ing, pintrest-ing, and so on and the enemy fills my heart with lies....so I wait. And....

I pray...

Dear Lord, heal this heart, and rid it of unnecessary jealousy. Surely it's not what you want from me or for me. And, we are all loved by you the same...

Then I noticed a new fan on my Blog... and as part of her profile....a scripture....

As I am a seeker....I search....and.....then....I find. 

And, immediately. 

Peace. 

This week. I will tattoo this verse into my soul and never forget the task at hand...

TRUTH. 

not...

ever.....

popularity...

Always TRUTH.

Luke 6:26 The Message (MSG)
 26"There's trouble ahead when you live only for the approval of others, saying what flatters them, doing what indulges them. Popularity contests are not truth contests—look how many scoundrel preachers were approved by your ancestors! Your task is to be true, not popular.

 My answer: "Your task is to be true, not popular."

"Your task is to be true, not popular."
