• Roots showing
• Mane is too long
• Crows feet at 💯
• Autoimmune bloat & inflammation at it’s finest
• Less than stellar eyebrows
• Always in purple 😝 (I’ve acquired much purple through the many years of supporting 2 boys’ sports + my hubby who is a coach!)
But that’s okay.
Even still… I feel like this season of my life is going somewhere great, and I can’t wait to see where God takes me!
There was discussion in a group I am in on comparison today. I am so guilty of this, in many ways.
To compare myself to others is not even practical… the family dynamics is different than anyone else’s, as are finances, work life, family structure, community involvements, health issues, etc. Time management is so important in my life, and I have been good (so far) in 2020 trying to be intentional with every moment and having purpose for every minute. But the comparison game gets me every time.
I am, in this process, learning to minimize my priority list and focus on the most important for every given moment, reminding myself every minute of the day that my life looks different than others…as does everyone’s life to others.
Only me… I, myself, am responsible for the stewardship of everything I have. I cannot gauge what I do based on what it looks like in someone else’s life. I must take those steps God ordained for ME. Not for anyone else. God is ordaining MY steps to disciple me in a way that is personal to ME…. and for His glory. God ordains others’ steps in a way that is personal to THEM.
To compare to others cheapens what God has planned for me. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss a second of what He has planned for me, amen?
So, don’t waste the time and energy on the comparison game. Just take each step as God ordained.
Do everything with purpose – every minute.
If you aren’t learning, you aren’t growing.
If you aren’t growing, you aren’t really living.
God made you to shine through the darkness in your own special way. YOUR way, and no one else’s, for His glory. For you were fearfully and wonderfully made, so don’t lose site of that. Don’t fret and definitely do not compare.
“You is kind. You is smart. And you is important.”
Keep shining. 🌟 💎
