Measure up: Comparison 

“In the fullness of time, God sent his one and only Son, born of a woman born under the law to redeem those who are under the law, that we might receive adoptions as sons.”             Galatians 4:4-5

      I know comparison can be hard, and I know it’s not something that’s fun to talk about. I know sometimes it can be hard not to think you aren’t good enough, or you don’t measure up, or you are not worth it.. But you are!! God wants the best for us and he is our perfect father! God made us who we are and we all have our differences. Comparison can be a trap, it can hold you hostage, there is no win in comparison. Comparing yourself to others is harmful. Negativity is no good. Spreading negativity instead of positivity makes people feel bad about themselves and others. It puts them in a spot they don’t want to be in. In psalms 139:14 it says “I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” This places a lot in my heart. It makes me realize how much God cares for us and makes me think he made each and every one of us just how we are and loves us all. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by an amazing heavenly father who wants the best for you!! He made you who you are! There will be rude people in this world, and it’s really not fair. But, at the end of the day you just have to realize God loves us and he wants the best for us! Having lots of positivity is a great way to not measure up! Love yourself and love others around you! Compliment yourself and other people with positive things and it will make you feel better and not worse. Also, make sure you are being who you are. If you are going around being someone you aren’t… just to fit in or just to feel good.. Don’t. your only hurting yourself more because, you aren’t being who you are!! You are great. You are amazing. You are loved. And he is powerful. He is our perfect heavenly father who loves you so much!! When you compare yourself to others look to God, not people! Look to God for answers and look to God to see what to do. Don’t look and people and start judging yourself!! Be praying and and reading the bible to start in this journey!! Spread positivity and spread compliments rather than negativity! You are awesome!! 

love you lots, carsyn
