To be Yourself....that is the Question

To be ourselves causes us to be exiled by many others,
and yet to comply with what others want causes us
to be exiled from ourselves.--Unknown


Well this is definitely my struggle these days. Like Noah building his ark in the face of his stunned and confused friends and family, I am in the same boat (pun intended) with my family. What to do , what to do....as painful as it is I know I must move forward toward the call......hand me that hammer, would ya?

DO IT! You won't regret it! When you escape the "bondage" of pleasing people, God will open wide the doors of power and opportunity!

And a man's foes will be they of his own household.
He who loves [and takes more pleasure in] father or mother more than [in] Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves [and takes more pleasure in] son or daughter more than [in] Me is not worthy of Me;
And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conforming wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also] is not worthy of Me.
- Matthew 10:36-38 AMP
