Celebrate the Blessings in Others
Rejoice with those who rejoice…. Romans 12:15
In the face of difficulty, what is your response? When things in life aren’t going exactly as you hoped, what is your reaction?
For many people facing trouble or pain, their first reaction is to look around and compare their situation with other people. But when we compare, our focus is skewed and we miss the opportunities to celebrate what God is doing in and through others. And celebrating with others is exactly what today’s verse is all about.
One of the biggest keys to overcoming pain in life is to STOP COMPARING and to START CELEBRATING. When someone shares something good in their life, take time to celebrate it! Even if you can’t experience what they are sharing, be excited as they share with you. Because when you celebrate with them, you will find yourself freed up to experience a new perspective on life, and on pain.
Ask God to help you stop comparing your situation with others. Instead, pray that He gives you the ability to celebrate the blessings in others’ lives.
Write today’s step toward overcoming pain: STOP COMPARING; START CELEBRATING. Then, find one way to celebrate with a friend about something good happening in their life today.
