I'm Impressed by You

I had a conversation this morning with two random strangers about life, marriage, education and children. One of the men was a pastor and upon leaving he said, "I'm impressed by you." It felt awkward, but ultimately I said, "Thank you."

If you're living right, people notice. We know what it means to live right, even though we fight it. I believe in applying God's word to every crevice of my life. God's Word does what it is supposed to do in each individual's life. You won't regret living by the principles laid out in The Word. You may not be a  huge success, but someone is looking on and wants what you have.
So I'm giving you permission right now to be glad with what you have accomplished, and to also know that there is more ahead.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
I Thessalonians 5:11

I'm impressed by you!

  1. That is great and even better that you simply said thank you. Sometimes we get a compliment such as that and it is hard to accept and it feels easier to just say, no, come on and try to brush it off because it does feel awkward ... I'm sure you know what I mean :) Such a great post of encouragement. Thank you :)
