"Don't compare your Chapter 1 to someone else's Chapter 20"
Wow! Reading that quote this morning really made me think. There are so many people that are better than me at leading, managing time, promoting God's message, singing, dancing, running, sports, etc. But...there is only one who can be ME.
Why do we compare ourselves to others and mark our success and victory stories based on how others are doing. Remember the first day you walked into recovery? Can you imagine if you compared it to yourself living Today? It would be very overwhelming because you have experienced incredible growth. The only way to get to Chapter 20 and really understand, respect and appreciate it, is to read Chapter 1 and so on.
If you find yourself comparing yourself to others these days, stop, breathe, pray, refocus and remember where you are today because of Christ. Remember that part of the blessing is the process getting there.
No matter what chapter you are on, remember, He is performing miracles thru you the way He intended.
"You are the God who performs miracles; You display Your power among the peoples." Ps 77:14
Have a great week!
