We're recognizing some of our own tendencies to try to please people and to always want everyone to like us. It has not happened yet, and it probably won't ever happen. So, rather than go slowly, insane, we're working on letting go of that nutty idea all together. God wants us all to desire Him and His approval -it is a journey and we're hopeful that along the way we learn a lot about loving Him and about loving others - whether they approve of us or not.
This song is good. Hope you like it.
Sara Groves - This Journey is My Own
When I stand before the Lord, I'll be standing alone. This journey is my own. Still I want man's advice, and I need man's approval, but this journey is my own
CHORUS: Why would I want to live for man and pay the highest price? What would it mean to gain the world, only to lose my life?
So much of what I do is to make a good impression. This journey is my own. So much of what I say is to make myself look better. This journey is my own I have never felt relief like I feel it right now. This journey is my own.
' Cause trying to please the world it was breaking me down, it was breaking me down Now I live and I breathe for an audience of one, now I live and I breath for an audience of one. Now I live and I breathe for an audience of one, 'cause I know this journey is my own
You can live for someone else, and it will only bring you pain. I can't even judge myself. Only the Lord can say, "Well done."
