Keep seeking and serving the Lord whether people get you or not -- whether people understand you or they don't. Even if you have to yell, "I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in my mouth!" (Psalm 34:1), do it over and over again. And whatever you do, don't move from your post and position of God. Let Him shut the mouths of the lions, while we play our positions.
I know for a fact that there are some people who think I'm straight up weird simply because I don't do the things they do. They think I should have certain people in my life and they don't understand why I don't. They think I should be involved in this and that and they don't understand why I don't indulge. I won't ever indulge. It doesn't matter how long they wallow in their confusion about me. Let them wallow.
What I'm starting to realize more and more, is that some people just don't understand who I am. They don't get that my reliance is on God moving and shifting things on my behalf, not Sharon trying to move and shift them. My life is so much better that way. So, if people want to think a certain way about the servants of the Lord, let them. You have to be willing to stand for God. Those who choose to put Him first are the ones who He gets -- who He understands. And when that's the case, man's opinion doesn't matter one iota.
This is just a reminder to keep seeking God no matter what comes your way and don't worry about man's view of you (Matthew 6:25-33). Keep serving Him whether people get you or not. God will ensure they will one day understand. In the meantime, keep being you and stand strong.
