In searching for content for this week's Inspirational Monday, I saw this message and HAD to post it because I'm guilty of trying to keep up or always wanting to keep busy not realizing that I need to be still and LISTEN to God's plan for MY life.
I hope you all find this week's post as helpful and poignant as I have...
"Are you trying to catch up with someone else - a neighbor, friend or coworker. We get so wrapped up in the competition trying to outdo them, out dress them, or trying to prove that we're important. We spend all this time and energy going down that path when we should be using it to move toward our own God-given destiny!
If that's you today, realize that your life would go to a whole new level if you would just quit competing with everyone around you. It takes a lot of physical and emotional energy to try to impress people all day long. But it's very freeing to say, "I don't have to impress anybody today. I have nothing to prove. I'm secure in who I am. And I am not going to feel bad if you look better, make more money, or get more recognition. I don't have to keep up with you; I'm going to run my own race. Get free from comparison today so that you can move forward into the destiny God has in store for you!" - Joel Osteen
"…Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1, NKJV)."Have a blessed and prosperous week everyone!
