“But you can be sure that no prophets are liked by the people of you home town.”
When we start making the positive walk to making your life better a happiness will show on our face. This happiness comes from being self-reliant on worldly things that we don’t have to worry about. It comes also from reliance on GOD for our spiritual well being lso. People will see this happiness and one of two things; either ask you how you became so happy or try to knock you down to to their level of unhappiness. Do your best to get away from the second one.
We should only worry about making our life and those around us lives better. If someone wants to be miserable leave them to it. I find myself falling in to the trap of unhappiness from time to time. It is hard to crawl out of that trap. Pray for God to take that negative from you and give you strength to get away from it. AMEN.
