Be careful. 

Be careful not to allow

the pressure of expectations,

the lack of understanding,

the looks of disapproval,

the negative vibes,

the critical spirit,

the absence of support,

the wary facial expressions,

the scorn,

the gossip,

the threats,

from those around you,

and even closest to you,

to cause you to divert from or abandon

the path, the process and ultimately, the fulfillment

of what you know

to be God’s will for your life. 

Be careful.


“And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].”

(Colossians 3:15 – Amplified Bible)


“The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.”

(Proverbs 29:25 – Amplified Bible)


“Now am I trying to win the favor of men, or of God? Do I seek to please men? If I were still seeking popularity with men, I should not be a bond servant of Christ (the Messiah).”

(Galatians 1:10 – Amplified Bible)


“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.”

(Jeremiah 29:11 – Amplified Bible)


Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], and let your gaze be straight before you. Consider well the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established and ordered aright.”

(Proverbs 4:25, 26 – Amplified Bible)
