When you feel like you can’t keep up…
I know sounds sort of counterintuitive huh?
But really, our world is so different than it used to be. Everyone seems to be moving at a faster pace and doing more…and it leaves my head spinning sometimes.
In reality, we are all still heading in the same direction…
Just at different speeds.
And truth is, I don’t want to try and keep up with anyone.
Well, except God. He is the One I am following.
It’s too easy to get sucked in and see what others are doing and feel inadequate.
But my life is about serving Him and seeking Him and following Him.
If I am distracted by what others are doing I can’t keep my eyes fixed on Him.
Don’t fret about not keeping up. You weren’t meant to keep up. You were meant to live a life that glorifies Him.
Quite frankly our own selfish pride gets fed when we keep up with others. Because then we focus on what WE can accomplish and what we can achieve…we puff ourselves up, even sometimes at the expense of others.
But when we walk in humility, it isn’t about what we can do but what He can do.
I am a work in progress. I constantly have to remind myself that my life is between Him and me. Not the world and me.
I am not living to keep up with the Joneses but to walk with God.
I have to remind myself that no matter what everyone else is doing, I am content with what He has me doing.
It is hard to filter out the noise these days because there are so many voices. Which is why it is more important than ever to be a woman in the Word. And not just IN the Word, but living it.
Are you struggling with comparison? With keeping up? I encourage you to take your eyes off the things of this world and truly follow Him wherever He leads.
This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone. I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.
