Passionate Writing: Ignore them!

When you're small, they'll dismiss you.
When you're growing, they'll criticize you.
When you're large, they'll resent you.

So . . .
Ignore "them"
and get on with whatever 
God has told YOU to do.
--Rick Warren

You're a newbie, a wannabe, a fledgling, a flunky
Your ideas and dreams and hopes are ridiculed 
as impossible or
stupid, and maybe even 
foolhardy.

Yet you persist . . .

Then you suddenly find yourself 
as a co-laborer, maybe
low on the totem pole, 
one who is inexperienced but somehow
made it this far

And THEN . . .

you've kept at it, plugging away,
plodding YOUR path,
YOUR journey,
the way GOD would have you go.

And you see the resentment,
the jealousy sometimes,
the sniffing and whispering
from those who wish they were doing as well

But it doesn't matter.
What does matter is doing God's special work
he planned for YOU!

That's what counts.
That's what's important.

Continue on! 


Blessings!
