I was reading today and came across a beautiful phrase from Thomas a' Kempis, a 14th century catholic monk. He wrote a book called "The Imitation of Christ".

He said this:

"It is great wisdom to keep silent when damaging words are spoken to you. Turn your attention and don't worry about rumor or slander. Don't look for support from the mouths of others. You are who you are regardless of what they say. And you shall know much peace if you neither try to please them or care if you displease them."

This really reminded me of a phrase I always have running around in my head..."Character is way more important than reputation". People, even family sometimes say the most hurtful things and sometimes it's literally not true....but at the end of the day, my family, that is Adrienne and I are living for Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and He knows. He knows the truth and if I'm living for Him and His kingdom, than my significance, character, worth, and the Truth is TOTALLY found in Him.

God, you are so faithful, so true, and I can't believe you loved me enough to save me.

grace and peace,
