The Comparison Game

Frustrated Woman in front of table, chairs, and brick wall

Do you struggle with comparing yourself to others? Me too! I am doing a lot better than I used to, but I still fall into that trap at times. As a matter of fact, even working on this blog I find myself feeling less than.

If only I could write as good as…

If only I was as talented as…

If only I was as smart as…

You know the routine. We all struggle at times. Can we ever truly be free from this crazy mind game? Hmmm, I really don’t know if that will happen this side of heaven. But what I do know, you can work on becoming the best you that you can possibly be.

God has called you for such a time as this. Instead of wishing you were more like “her,” start thanking God for the gifts He has given you. You are more than enough in Christ Jesus. Be free to be you!
