“It doesn’t matter what people think. You gotta stop looking to other people to tell you who you are. You want to climb out of that hell you’re in; do the work.” @anthonymackie as Sam Wilson
I loved this scene from @falconandwintersoldier . So many people feel like they have the right to tell you what to do, what to think, and who to be. People, even well intentioned ones, can’t help but insert their own insecurities and maligned ideas in their assessment of you. Even the best people can’t help but be gaslighters and gatekeepers. They’re all wrong.
As believers, we look to Jesus to tell us who we are. He calls us beloved, a light on a hill, God’s temple, citizens of heaven, His workmanship, children of God, and a new creation. He already did the work – we just gotta do our part to move closer to Him.
