    So many people live life worried about what everyone else thinks and wondering how they can impress other people. But we have to realize that when we come to the end of life, we’re not going to stand before people to give an account of our lives, we are going to stand before Almighty God. He is not going to say, “Why didn’t you do what so-and-so said to do? Why didn’t you fit into their mold? Why didn’t you take their opinion?” No, He is going to ask, “Did you become who I created you to be? Did you stay true to what I put in your heart?”

    This is where Saul missed it. Saul had a big destiny. God had great things in his future, but Saul was so insecure that he let people squeeze him into their mold. He was afraid he was going to disappoint somebody. He said in First Samuel 15:24, “I disobeyed the Lord’s instructions because I was afraid of the people, so I did what they asked.” Notice Saul knew what to do. He even admitted it, “I disobeyed God’s instructions.” Why? He was a people pleaser. He forfeited his destiny in order to please people. Friend, don’t let that be you! Don’t be a people pleaser, be a God pleaser because pleasing God is all that matters when all is said and done!

  9. There are three things I want you to learn how to say.

    “I love you”
    and don’t just say it as an empty phrase,
    say it with feeling,
    say it to every person who comes to mind when you think of those three little words.
    I know it’s scary,
    I know it’s difficult,
    but open yourself up
    and shout it.
    Don’t mumble,
    don’t say it under your breath,
    when you love someone,
    whether platonically or romantically,
    it deserves to be shouted from every rooftop.

    There will be some people in your life
    that come in and just wreck everything,
    they mess up your plans,
    they hurt you,
    and make you feel less than what you are,
    so please learn how to say goodbye to them.
    But I also want you to learn how to say goodbye
    to even the people you want to stay.
    not everyone stays,
    and saying goodbye is like setting someone free,
    and it won’t always come easy,
    and it won’t always come without heartbreak,
    but not everyone stays,
    and it will do you a world of good to learn how to tell them

    “I am worth it.”
    there will be waves of sorrow in your life,
    and you will feel as if you were the sand that the tide carries away,
    you will feel as if it carries away your worth
    it will feel like you are the left over rubble of a building
    that had been burned down,
    and you will feel less,
    but please learn to say these words.
    say them in the mirror when you have just woken up,
    say them when your lover turns their back on you,
    say them when you are opening up the refrigerator
    sing them,
    yell them,
    whisper them,
    and please, believe them.
    You are more than sand that can just be washed away,
    and you are more than just a few pieces of broken cement,
    you are worth it.
