The pressure to be what others think I should be is strong and I don’t know what to do with it. Compliance has always been my mode of response; I don’t know if there can be another. What would life look like if I could be assured that what I’m supposed to be was in my Savior’s hands…was something that I could not lead, but could surely submit to?
Isn’t that a relief? You don’t have to make yourself be anything. You can simply be what I have called you to be because you know I am working that out within you. My child, you don’t have to worry about anything. What the world wants you to be is not a lasting entity or a worthwhile pursuit. Yet, if you will remain in Me, you shall know what real living and being is.
