How to stop comparing yourself with others. Why is it easy to get caught up in comparing our life, marriage, kids, home, car, finances and just about everything to others?
How to Stop Comparing Yourself with Others
I would like to think that this isn’t a stumbling block for me but every once in a while comparison will show it’s ugly head and whisper destructive thoughts like you’re not good enough, look at her, they have their life together, they do a better job, look what her husband does for her, her kids are smarter, their house, car, etc is better…..and so on.
How to Get Rid of Negative Thoughts
As soon as these negative comparison thoughts start creeping in what should be done?
Speak God’s Word Over Your Life
Instead of listening to the dreaded comparison whisperer, start speaking out the good about your life.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
God loves me.
I am blessed with means of transportation, a roof over my head, food on my table, clothes for my family to wear.
God is taking care of us.
In your marriage, speak out the good things your husband does for you instead of focusing of what he doesn’t do.
He sends a text every day
Calls when he can
Tells me he loves me
Loves our kids
Is a hard worker and good provider.
We are all a work in progress. We are all on different paths with different circumstances. Lets not compare our first chapter to someones 20th chapter.
Bible Verse Affirmations
Find the good in each day. Cover your day and thought life with Bible Verses. Ask God, daily, for what He wants you to learn. Be content with where God has you but eager to move forward to be better. To be the woman, wife and mother that God wants us to be. To be the person God wants us to be.
God is enough. Trust Him. Lean on Him. Walk with Him. God should be your joy. Let’s not let our fears, emotions and destructive thoughts rule our lives. Let’s counsel our hearts with the word of God. Let’s not take scripture for granted. Claim the strength in it. Draw near to God.
Read Isaiah 43. God has called us by name. He created us. He has been thinking and loving us all this time. He knows what is best for us.
God says when we pass through the waters and fires that He’ll be with us. He doesn’t say we will have it easy but He says He will be with us and He will not let those trials consume us.
He calls us precious and tells us he loves us. Read the chapter but pray first that God will open your eyes and heart to take in what He wants you to understand.
Let’s stand on the strength and power of the word of God. Let’s get excited about what God is doing in our lives!!
