Comparison is the greatest thief of joy in the world! There is no way to be content and have joy in your life if you are constantly comparing yourself to other people around you, to your past self or to your future self you have imagined! God has you in this season in your life for a reason and you might not ever find out why if you are constantly comparing yourself and not allowing yourself to be calm, listen and just enjoy the process! What a shame that would be! .
There is nothing that will steal your purpose in your life more than comparison! Trust me! I get it! "That person is already doing it so much better than I could ever hope to." "I don't have the skills I should have. Maybe I'll do it in the future." "I can't reach the people I want to reach so maybe someone else should do it." "Maybe if I was younger I could pursue it." "I'm not as creative as I used to be." "I'm not old enough."
I've got news for you! You are meant to be in this season and you know what God has spoken to you for your purpose in your life! If you're truly honest with yourself, you will know. What are you meant to do with this gift of life God has given you?! Don't let fear steal any of it from you! There is only one place fear can come from and that's the devil. He has come to steal, kill and destroy Sound familiar?!
"The thief comes only to steal kill nad destory, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
Comparison doesn't come, in any way, shape or form, from God! If you need to repeat that scripture 100 times a day, do it! You need a mind and spirit understand of it! .
Be fierce today! Pursue your God given talents and purpose with FIERCE PASSION and don't let the devil compare you to anyone else, even yourself! .
Ps...Isn't it amazing when you have a topic in mind for the week and your pastor happens to speak on it at church on Sunday morning?! Yeah...that happened this week! 😂 Thanks @joshskjoldal! 😝
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! -Psalm 139:17-18
Cuán preciosos me son, oh Dios, tus pensamientos! ¡Cuán grande es la suma de ellos! Si los enumero, se multiplican más que la arena; Despierto, y aún estoy contigo. -Salmos 139:17-18
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
🍃Mientras más doy y más trato de cambiar. Mientras más avanzó, más me doy cuenta que pocos creen que pueden avanzar. Que personas se quedan estancadas por el miedo al que será. Rechazan el aprendizaje y el vivir sin límites mentales...Me quedo sorprendida con las viejas costumbres, que por más anticuadas y primitivas que sean, permanecen en la forma de ser de personas mayores y en de los jóvenes por heredar. Miro a mi alrededor y confío que si hay un remedio, a pesar de sentirme impotente de alcanzar a los más cercanos, pero más capaz de impactar a los más extraños. Y porque? Porque son los que mejor conocemos que se rehúsan a cambiar y a crecer. Son los que más temen defraudarnos y fracasar. Pero más por el miedo a reconocer que el cambio los va a sanar. 🍃 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 🍃The more I give and the more I want to change, the more I move forward, the more I realize that a few want to move forward too. That people get stuck in life for the fear of “what will it be?”. They reject learning and living without mental limitations. I am amazed with old customs, that no matter how old and primitive they may be, they continue to be the way of being of those old and young. I look around me and I believe there is a cure...Despite the fact that I feel more able to reach strangers than close relatives. But why? Because they are the ones that refuse to change and grow. They are the ones that fear disappointing us and failing the most. But mostly because they fear admitting that change with heal them inside. 🍃 #change#changeistheonlyconstant#beach#breeze#happy#positive#believeinyourself#dontfear#openminded#education#cambios#creencia#tatiyyeli#tatiyyelineumeister#thoughts#tertulia@booksandbooks
Everything we desire in this world is on the other side of fear! Will Smith tells an amazing story about skydiving for the first time. (Look it up on YouTube it’s worth it) He talks about how everything leading up to what you are about to do should not be feared. There is no reason to fear it because you are in no danger. There is no reason to fear skydiving until the moment you step out of the plane. But once you step out of the plane you realize there is nothing to fear because you are experiencing pure bliss. Stop living your fears today! Everything you want or desire in your life is on the other side of fear! #motivation#quoteoftheday#fear#fearquote#dontfear#neverfear#fearnot#willsmith#dontbeafraid#conquerfear#conqueryourfears@willsmith

The vision and goals I have for @mck@mckinnonactingstudio honestly SCARE me. I FEAR them! They scare me because of how IMPOSSIBLE accomplishing these goals seem. The amount of money needed to fund it, being able to manage something so huge, the sacrifices that are required to make it happen, make it seem impossible. But I’ve learned from my mentor and Bishop, @joel_ylawndapeebles , that whatever you fear, that’s the direction you’re supposed to go. The devil’s purpose is to make you so afraid, so that you can’t live out your purpose. But our God is so much bigger than any fear. With God, ALL THINGS are possible. If I serve God more than the thing I want, He will give me more than the thing I want. I’m ready to FEARLESSLY attack what God has shown me for @mckinnonactingstudio ! Let’s work! #mckinnonactingstudio#goals#vision#dontfear#allthingsarepossible#actingstudio
