Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2

You know those voices I'm talking about. The ones from all the people in this world telling us we have to do s or that to be accepted, the ones that fill our heads with expectations that may or may not fulfill God's plan.
I've had to remind myself so much lately that it's not the expectations of the world that I should worry about meeting (or even my own expectations... those get me, too... I'm my own worst critic), but the expectations of God on which I should focus. It doesn't matter one bit what the world thinks... it what God thinks that matters.
You know, we won't always fall in line with the expectations of the world. And, when we don't, those people won't always hang around once we've failed to meet their expectations. However, God will always be there....regardless. His love is unconditional and unfailing. If we keep our focus on Him, we can't fail. Sure, we will stumble along the way and not always follow His will, but He will help us pick ourselves back up again, wipe away the tears, and get us going in the right direction. All we need to do is seek and follow... setting our minds on Him.
