Have you ever gotten stuck in the comparison trap?
I have. Was stuck in it for the entire year of 2015.
Major midlife crisis. Just couldn't move forward because my eyes and my focus was stuck on what everybody else was doing.
Pastor Andy Stanley and his wife Sandra have a name for the place I was making home at in 2015. It's called the Land of Er. You know where that is.
It's the land where everyone else is bett-ER, and rich-ER, and skinni-ER, and pretti-ER, and smart-ER, and all the other "ers" that make us feel like chopped liver. I know you've visited there at least once.
In Pastor Stanley's study of The Comparison Trap (you can watch the lesson on youtube here), he teaches how there is no win in comparison. God loves us simply because we exist. What freedom! I packed my bags and moved my butt right out of the Land of Er!
God says "You are fine because you're mine." I believe it with all my heart.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
