When I was a young Associate Pastor, a person approached me after I had just preached and said, "Wow, that was a real yawner." Mic drop. That could have annihilated a young speaker's confidence. Thankfully, some encouraging people spoke life into me regarding my speaking ability. They genuinely enjoyed hearing me speak—but isn't it funny how that ONE person's voice can get in your head and control your destiny-- if you let it?
