Pressure builds and comes from all sides.  Have faith, take courage, be not afraid. For I Am with you in all things.  I have not given you a spirit of fear but of courage.  Do not dread the days ahead, for they are your life.  Be still and stand firm in all things.  Allow others to “win”, but do not lose yourself.  Stay true to yourself in Me, and you will be Blessed beyond all comprehension.   Stay faithful in the little things.  Allow Me to guide you.  Worry not about what others will say and think.  For they think they know, but they do not.  Trust and believe.  Do not suppose to change others.  Work only to change yourself.  Take your mind off others in the sense that you do not need their permission or their approval.  Stay very close to Me, and allow Me to guide your heart and daily actions.
