One of the best decisions I have ever made was dropping out of PEOPLE-PLEASING UNIVERSITY and enrolling in GOD-PLEASING UNIVERSITY. I didn’t fit in at PEOPLE-PLEASING UNIVERSITY! Whatever I did seemed to be wrong. I didn’t talk right. I acted weird. I was too weak. I have heard it all! I literally broke myself down trying to get attention and please others. In the mess I had put myself in, Jesus came along and filled out my drop slip from PEOPLE-PLEASING UNIVERSITY. I then enrolled in GOD-PLEASING UNIVERSITY where I am assured that I am loved no matter what. I am enough. I am not too this or too that. I am blessed. I am assured that God created me to stand out and not fit in. I can’t bring God glory by looking and acting like the world. I must stand out so that others are inspired by it. Is it time for your drop slip to be filled out? “In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
