At any point in life you’ll encounter, or have encountered, one or more folks who are more than happy to tell you what you can’t do and what you’ll never be. Ignore the critics. In God’s eyes, you’re a mighty hero (Judges 6:12). God has set you apart from the low expectations of others. That kind of behavior is often motivated by fear. You’re trying to do things that so many other people are afraid to do. And when people can’t get themselves to do something, they criticize other people who do. Stay focused on God’s opinion of you. Keep calm and carry on.
