Trying to live for an Audience of One is hard sometimes

How is it that good actions can become catalysts for bad thinking so easily?

Let’s just say that I’m frustrated with my own people-pleasing tendencies. It’s way too easy for me to become overly concerned with making other people happy to feed my own self-esteem.

“Only the Lord can say, ‘Well done.'” (see Sara Groves’ song, “This Journey is My Own.”)

The good news is that He is faithful to remind me of that.
