[1: 1,948 of 10,000] WOEAIHF? Day 42 of 42

WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 42: The people-pleaser trap

Rick warned and started with the question, “Whose approval are you living for?” And he then continued, “People-pleasing is the flip side of envy. Envy says, ‘I must be like you to be happy!’ People-pleasing says, ‘I must be liked by you to be happy.'” The only approval that I must seek is God’s so I won’t lose the grip of my life. With God, I will never feel insecure because He will never reject me and it’s the right path.

May I have the courage to be confident to do my life’s mission and speak about the love of God without fearing what others may think and never doubt my testimony. I will seek God’s help to break free when I am in the mute and inaction situations.

It was indeed enlightening that even God can’t please and make all happy because we were given the free will that we have to choose to know and follow Him.

And with that, I also share a prayer from Rick Warren that ended this book journey but the beginning of a meaningful and beautiful life: My sincere prayer is that you will begin to experience all that God has in store for you. “No mere man has ever seen, heard, or even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who love the Lord!”
