They're saying this, but GOD said this...

It's a horrible thing to have a mind that always second-guesses itself. Torture even.  It's easy to become fixated on what others say/think about you, how they see you, your progress (or lack thereof).  As a result you become stuck there and begin to see yourself the way they do.  Stop that! This is bad.  

Do you soak criticism in so deeply that it cripples your progress even further? No matter how others see you and feel about your current situation, be even more intent on knowing what God says about you, what he promised you, and how he intends to get you where he wants you to be.

Your time with God is of utmost importance and precious for your continued growth. Along your journey, people will grow weary of you, your course and your circumstance. People will not understand and may laugh, judge, misappropriate, and whatever else. But in your communication with Him, allow His voice to speak clearly and shine past those other voices. Keep moving. Hold with a tight grip what God is saying to you and never let those words go. For they are your LIFE. In the end, it's HIS word that will stand and those same words coupled with your faith (no matter how small) will keep YOU standing.

Stop patronizing everyone's words and start solely relying and gripping God's word to you. Hang on to them for dear life.
