I want to wholly purge the need to hear “good job” from people. To appreciate the words but not use them for validation of self-worth.
Alternately, I yearn for the words of validation from my eternal Master saying:
“Well done, good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21a
Father, I live my life in devotion to Your standards not being concerned about being approved by the world. If there is any approval to be had by anyone, let it be because I am exhibiting godly character. Ultimately, I yearn to hear Your words of, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” All of this is accomplished through Christ, Amen.
Truth in love,
