“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God?
Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people,
I would not be a servant of Christ.”
As a writer, I want my words to serve as a ministry to others, but moreover, I want my life and work to be pleasing to God. Sometimes, however, the people-pleaser in me shows up and focuses on others’ approval rather than God’s.
Just when I think I have it under control, my sinfulness resurfaces. At 11 o’clock the other evening, I sat with my MacPro on my lap, trying to meet a fast-approaching deadline. My heart was pounding like a bass drum. My fingers harrowed through hectic hair. Unease seethed from my gut like over-boiling potatoes.
Please join me over a Deeper Waters where my devotion is published…
