Not being liked used to be something that bothered me more than anything. I tried so hard to please everyone, I probably still try too hard at times if I’m honest. But today’s verses are clear, not everyone is going to like us. I’ve met some people that seemed to dislike me before they ever knew me. Why Poppa? They recognized the Spirit within me! I’m okay with that. His light shines through me and it is going to clash with the world. I’ll keep shining anyways! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
“18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” John 15:18-19

Yikes! That was a very hard lesson for me to learn! I admit I used to be such a people pleaser. But God is teaching me that it is better to be who I am and that having fewer relationships of better quality is healthier for my soul. Amen.
