It's dangerous to be like somebody else. If God wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right? You never know what people have gone through to get what they have.
The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story.
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!
Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man/woman to hit the curb (if s/he isn't about the right thing)
e) You are a strong person and don't let people run you over
f) You have a strong and loving marriage and they can't get in-between spouses to spoil it
Haters can't stand to see you happy. Haters will never want to see you succeed. Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side (like some family and friends).
How do you handle your undercover haters?
- Knowing who you are & who your true friends are
- Having a purpose to your life. Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfulfilled. A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be. Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.
- Remembering that what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.
- Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live, when its your time to leave this earth, you want to be able to say, 'I've lived my life and fulfilled my dreams, now I'm ready to go HOME!'
'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
