Dedicate Your life to GOD

 Have you ever been hurt by someone you love? How did you respond to the situation? I spent most of my life trying to please others, that in the process; I almost lost myself.  Here is an example, my late mother and I were close. Often times we were mistaken as sisters. As long as I did everything she said, I was okay. But after her death I realized that I needed someone to account to. So I looked into other people but it did not work. What works for one person(s) child may not necessarily work for another. Simply because everyone is different. You have those who don't want you to do better than their children. You also have those who look for your idiosyncrasies and will say, "I will make sure my child doesn't end up like that if I die." (HARSH) After years of going through that, I then came to the conclusion that the only validation I needed was God's. It's difficult when one has to risk relationships because that person or persons are being antagonistic toward you. God wants His children to get along - He mentions it over and over again in scripture, "as much as possible live in peace with everyone" (Romans 12:18). We can try it. It is a difficult thing to do, but the reward that you will gain is so much greater than what you will lose. (POWERFUL). You can repair an old relationship or begin a new one.
