This is something people must ask themselves every single day, sometimes even multiple times during the day. The answer isn’t always one we’re going to like. We know we need to be acceptable in God’s eyes, but we want to be acceptable in the world’s eyes.
It’s hard. It’s hard to try to love a life acceptable to a person you can’t see when there’s people you can see that are hating on you for it. Sometimes, it feels like it’ll be easier to just do what the world wants you to do and hope God understands. It’s hard, I know. Don’t get angry at yourself for struggling with this, it is hard.
But every time you lose the approval of a person, remember that God sees that. God sees what you’re going through and God will get you through it. Not only that, but God will repay you. It’s hard. But keep going, it’s worth it. God’s got you.
