Midweek reality check:
You can't please people.
You can't make them happy.
maybe for a day, but not forever.
whomp whomp, huh??
no, but really.
this has been a pretty tumultuous few weeks at work,
ups and downs, inside out, hanging on for dear life.
tumultuous in the sense that we've felt a little uninspired, restricted.
and it's really affected how our team's been functioning.
i'm sure everyone knows how that feels,
so i feel ok posting about this here.
i've been exhausted!
trying to figure out how to fix this.
how to be a "solution" to the problem.
since getting this job, i've really been
well...less praying, more wondering how "i can be a light" here in hollywood.
i really thought that meant smiles, happy faces and a really good attitude about everything.
and i realized that yesterday somewhere along the 10,
1. this verse, ironically from our bible study just this past saturday.
"Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings,
or of God?
Or am I trying to please people?

I would not be a servant of Christ."
duh, Trisha, it's ALL RIGHT THERE.
2. this not-so-HIP, but totally happening song from the 90's:
Oh Holy Spirit, You're my comfort
Strengthen me, hold my head up high
And I stand upon Your truth
Bringing glory unto You
And let the peace of God,
let it reign!
