On Impressing Someone


I think it's typical for children to want to make their parents proud of them,

Or for students to let their teachers know how hard they worked,

Or for workers to want to awe their supervisors.

I've done all those and more.

All in all, we generally like to impress people.

After decades, I have only began to realize that I have misdirected my energies. I was barking up the wrong tree.

I should have spent my time pleasing God. The rest will simply follow.

My name's Anna Maria! I publish a new blog post every Monday and Friday, two of my favorite days! If you want to learn more about my journey, my book "Touched by Grace: The Journey" will be released this summer through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

In the meantime, check out my website touchedbygrace.today and subscribe for book updates and more blog posts! If you've been #tbgtoday, feel free to share your story of grace here.
