“Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” ~Aristotle

Thank you LORD for people who criticize me.

1. It helps me learn a little about my faults so they can be corrected.

2. It helps me to learn who my true friends and true leaders over me are.

3. It helps to break intimidation off my life.

4. It helps me to know who I am in you and sense your love and your presence.

5. It strengthens my resolve to focused on your call and vision

Thank you Lord because I am a person who people are critical of, because I am a women who is following you call and vision. LOL …. You are so God Lord! Your ways are wondrous and marvelous.

Oh God how unworthy am I of your call and vision. Help me to be a women of passion! My heart cries out for your love of a people who are lost and broken. They do not know you because of lack or labors. They have not heard of your love and saving power of redemption.

I may not be as polished at others, smart as others, supported as others, liked like other and a am not a man. But I did not call myself, I did not give myself a vision. Like other women before me I am an obedient hand maid trying to serve God the best I can. Criticism is my friend.

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
