When someone is critical of who you are don't make it your fight go on. Don't worry. God will remove the hindrances. Be secure in who God has made you be. Dont say a word Run your race, There is a Joy in not getting in a fight, Let it go set your eyes on your calling. Be whom you where intended to be in Jesus. Go on a follow the dreams God has put in your heart. If your road is God's road it doesn't matter what small minded people say. Press on to your calling in Christ. Remember when they mocked him with the thorn of Crowns. When they told him if he was God to come off the cross. When they gave him vinegar to drink. He said not a word. God has made his name the most honored name in the history of man. He didn't have to fight mockers or the backstabbers when talked about him in the Temple and in the Towns. He was called to the work of his Father just like you and I are. You don't have to please people. Please your Lord Jesus, Love others like he did and if they don't love you back its not your issue. Its they're issue so, don't own it. Do not let someone Rob you of Love , Joy and Happiness.
We are called to be peace makers. There is a Joy in seeking peace and Love!
Matthew 5:9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
