How much of your life are you playing to get someone’s attention? If only you could rest knowing the audience of one is the only way to live your every day.
Pressure is the breath of life. It’s a suit of armor that we bury our heart and soul into in order to get ahead, aim higher, and extend our reach.

Many of us live with asthma-like attacks keeping up with a schedule that has no margin for rest or even to make a swift shift.
The grindstone of busyness continues to shackle our escape for joy, freedom, and rest. We remain entangled with how the world expects us to live.
But how much of that life serves you? How much of that life brings you joy?
Habits are good until it creates barriers between the heart and soul. It’s a tug-a-war of sin and perfection; the earthly desires to fill wants and needs of the flesh.
Who are you living your life for? Are you trying to impress those around you? Are you trying to live up to expectations to be accepted? Are you committing to stuff in your life, because of how you will be seen?
You are not to live but for one. The audience of One!
The K.I.S.S. ~ The audience of One!
Living a life of expectations can cause us to fall short of what God has in store for our life.
You are not defined by what the world sees. You are loved. You are called beloved.
You are held by the God who created the heavens and the earth. Why would you give up so much to be recognized by all of those who fall short too?
1 Blessed is the one
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the one
whose sin the Lord does not count against them
and in whose spirit is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent,
my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night
your hand was heavy on me;
my strength was sapped
as in the heat of summer.
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
and did not cover up my iniquity.
I said, “I will confess
my transgressions to the Lord.”
And you forgave
the guilt of my sin.
6 Therefore let all the faithful pray to you
while you may be found;
surely the rising of the mighty waters
will not reach them.
7 You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
which have no understanding
but must be controlled by bit and bridle
or they will not come to you.
10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
but the Lord’s unfailing love
surrounds the one who trusts in him.
11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
sing, all you who are upright in heart!
With every breath you breathe, you have the audience of One.
Whom do you want to sit by your side when you miss the mark? Whom do you want to be your greatest cheerleader when you run away?
Whom do you give your heart? Whom do you surrender?
What would your life look if you followed those who trap you in doing what you think you should? Those would haves, could haves, should haves are problematic for the heart and soul. Hope is quickly lost.
Don’t waste your days away relying on what others recommend or say; they only hold everything against you.
Let God be the audience of One.
He stands by you when the going gets tougher. He forgives you when you fail and make wrong decisions and choices. He protects you when blind-sided by the enemy. He holds you upright when your strength fails.
This is the day the Lord has made. Sing of the goodness of God!
