let’s face it, we all have one – a friend
we like but secretly compete with.
after all, they seem to have all the
things we want. Their feed shows their
fun outings to places we want to go,
or maybe events we weren’t invited to.
Their life looks perfect.
No matter what the specific situation
is, these kinds of competitive thoughts
and relationships are not what God
wants for us, and can be damaging.
When i found myself with racing com-
petitive thoughts as i scanned social
media comparing myself or catching
up with someone’s profile, and not for
i decided i needed to figure out how
to change it.
With God’s help, i’ve found there are
simple things we can do to shift from
a harmful place of self-destruction to
a content place where we know and
understand we were individually fearfully and wonderfully made.
Stay in your lane – Focus on you and
what God is doing in your life. if you are
always looking back at other people in
the race, it slows you down.
hebrews 12: 2
keep it moving – Get out there and
do the things you are called to do! if
you are invested in a project or hobby
that you love, you are much less likely to
compare or have time to do so.
Ephesians 2: 10
Get out there and
do the things you
are called to do!
clean your “house” – There may be
people you follow on social media that
you just shouldn’t. What you surround
yourself with is vital to your growth as a
believer. Fill your newsfeed with things
and people that motivate you and
proverbs 13: 20
put your hands together – pray for
them. it seems so simple, or maybe the
last thing you want to do, but prayer
will not only help them, it will help you.
let God work on the world while you
work on yourself and your relationship
luke 6: 27-28
keep your eyes on the prize – Focus
on your relationship with God and not
