I Find that if I submit myself to the thoughts and whims of others (and their input) I no longer can submit myself to God and his input. I so long for him to be the potter and me be the clay. I have tried being open-minded and I do listen to others thoughts and input, however my mind is pointed at God saying “give me the mind of Christ.” I know sometimes others perceive me as being close minded but this is not the case. I spent years listening to the input of others (taking it to heart) and in that portion of my journey completely lost who I was. I want to please people and have them love me, but being a people pleaser has always gotten me in trouble. I can remember when “the enemy” even used my servant attitude toward God against me and ran me ragged until I had little or no time to develop my relationship with God. in the end I will stand before him, not a throng of people who say I was too much this way or too much that way. It’s God who will judge me (Ultimately) so it is him I seek for advice.

I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified. Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side. My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in. If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence". With Love, Laura I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org View all posts by Laura Grace
