Stop Comparing, Run

Let's face it. We aren't like anyone else. We are as unique as our fingerprints, some may look a little more alike- but not one of is like another. Yet we compare ourselves to others, we use others accomplishments as a measuring stick for who or what we say we should be.

We place others on a scale to build us up or tear down what He has built. You and I and the girl down the street- you know her, the one with the perfect figure and awesome put together life (wink wink). None of us were made to be like another one. You are Gods great craftsmanship, his work of art. We weren't supposed to look like everyone else.


Personally, I love to travel. I would love to see the world- but I am truly horrible with languages. My twin, on the other hand, is pretty good. She picks it up well and can even throw in the right accent. See I could spend my time sulking and comparing- but that isn't going to get me anywhere. Besides who wants to travel alone?
"Let everyone be sure to do his very best, for then he will have the personal satisfaction of work done well and won’t need to compare himself with someone else." (Galatians 6:4 LB)
Do your best and leave it at the feet of Christ. Your story isn't going to match anyone else, so don't try to force it. You're the heroine, not the writer. Trust Him, and push ahead. Stop focusing on someone else story. Focus on Him, because He is the only one that matters.

Once you know the author you can see His fingerprints all over the story- instead of what could have been if we were someone else. 

He has HUGE things planned for you, but you can't embrace them if you are constantly wanting to be in your neighbor's lane. Think of it like a race, if you are so busy watching the people on either side of you, you A) are going to get a stiff neck and B) miss what He has in store for you. Focus on Him, not those around you. Fix your eyes on Him and He will direct your path.
