We are 9 days in to the #NoCompareDare… how are you doing? It is so hard to not compare. Oh my.
Doesn?t it feel like the whole wide world wants us to compare? Ugh, stop yelling at me world. Magazines stop yelling what is beautiful. First it was the 6 pack abs, now it?s the thigh gap… enough!
Facebook: stop yelling that everyone else has a better husband and kids.
Instagram: stop yelling that everyone else takes better vacations.
Twitter: stop yelling the issues I should really care about, you know what?s ?trending.?
Stop yelling at me. I hear a whisper. One that needs to be heard.
I am uniquely created. Uniquely! That means one of kind, unlike anyone else. Yes that?s me.
And being different is better than better! Because being different is what sets me apart, makes me unique.
And I hear truth:
For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother?s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14
Yes, You the creator, created me to be one of a kind. And if you are one of a kind, there is no comparison.
Besides when I compare I have only two seat options, the seat of discontent or the seat of judgment. Neither has the view I want. I want the view He has! The front row view to you and me!
I want to see through the eyes of the One who created me, Who created you! He sees the eternal not the temporary.
The world can keep on yelling about the temporary, I am not listening. I choose to hear the whisper of truth!
I am taking the #NoCompareDare. Won’t you join me?
