"What if instead of talking about people, we prayed for them?"
It's a thought I had been pondering for awhile and thought it was worth sharing. How quick we are to gossip and judge. How quick to spread the word when we hear bad about people. Or how quickly we become angry with the things people say to us.
A few hours later, someone tweeted back at me. Something not very nice. Something about not believing in God and prayer. And then she attacked my faith.
My stomach sank. I got bright red in the face. I wanted to curl up and die. Or at least give her a piece of my mind and include a few choice words about what I thought she deserved in life.
Then I thought of this quote...
"Pay more attention to your Creator than your critics."
I don't want to force anyone to believe what I believe. I am a praying woman. I will ALWAYS be a praying woman. And I will worship God through the good and the bad. And there will always be someone who disagrees or disapproves of the way you choose to live your life, even when you are doing your very best.
It's not between you and them. It's between you and your Creator. An Almighty God who believes in the very best of you. <3
How do you handle the critics?
