Stop judging and evaluating yourself, for this is not your role. Above all, stop comparing yourself with other people. This produces feelings of pride or Inferiority, sometimes a mixture of both. God puts you on a path that is uniquely Tailor made for you. Comparing is not only wrong; it is also meaningless.
Don’t look for affirmation in the wrong places: your own evaluations or those of other people. The only source of real affirmation is the faith within yourself. Many people feel God is a judge angrily searching out their faults and failures – nothing could be further from the truth.
Your path is where you are supposed to be. Every day embrace what happens to you and focus on your goals and your faith to get you where you want to go. 

Protect Yourself

The positive mental attitude towards emotional well-being makes the person sensitive to the differences between negative and positive feelings. 
The possibility thinker gradually gains the ability to recognize and reject negative feelings, then intuitively and self-consciously senses and submit to the positive feelings! All forms of emotional input – relationships, books, magazines, religious teachings, lectures-affect our emotional well-being for better or worse. We begin to sense whether our thoughts and experiences are giving us joy, health, confidence, courage, love. If these positive emotions are stimulated, we ourselves will remain in the groove. But if ideas, individuals, institutions, activities, or experiences tend to leave us with negative feelings – discouragement, depression, anger, guilt, shame, we take immediate corrective action to extract ourselves… if this is not practical then create shields to protect ourselves from negative impact. 
My own personal shields to avoid negativity are prayer, readings with Bible verses and talking to those who have the knowledge and experience to help me grow beyond. 
Today stay positive and use your shield to be a better person. 

Street Ministry

True story- Today I was walking my dog and met a man with his dogs. We started chatting and he shared the following with me.
“If one lives in doubt, one lives without. If one believes one receives. By faith, prayer, obedience in service you can live your life to its fullest “
This is Brother Steve’s Street ministry
