Comparisons Stink



It's sometimes difficult not to compare yourself to other women. Always remember, especially during these times, that God made you to be just the way that you are.

There I was on the beach my weakness standing beside their strength.  

I was on a beach vacation with several friends who have dancer’s legs. I guess you could say I have dancer legs too if you’re referring to the dancing hippo from the Madagascar movies. I can eat healthy and exercise all day long, but lean legs are just not in my genetic makeup.

When comparisons sneak in, it can be hard worse than hard. It can quite simply make me forget all the strengths I do have. Then, I stop being thankful and become consumed by what I don’t have.

I desperately need God’s truth to bump into my weaknesses every day. Only then can I stop comparing and start living in the reality of who He’s made me to be.  Not perfect. Not even close, but good.
