WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD

We as women in general tend to compare ourselves to other women don't we? We say, "I wish my hair looked like hers. I wish I had a house like hers. I would love to be able to speak like her. I long to have my children act like hers. I want a car like she has. I wish my husband acted like hers. I wish my house was spotless like hers. If only I could cook like she does. I wish I had her height. I wish my facial complexion was like hers. If only I had her money". And our list goes on doesn't it?

First I want to say this:And listen good.....We need to be very careful about what we WISH FOR! We have no clue what is really taking place in another woman's life nor may we want too! 

If we are going to compare ourselves to someone else let it be Jesus! That will put our life into perspective. 


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Wow Cindy, that was powerful and so true. The other day I was wishing that I could paint like a friend of my daughters.

    I was sitting thinking that I have zero gifts...and while I still kind of believe that. I try to not want what others have...but painting or singing is one I struggle with LOL.

    So thank you for the reminder...I need to read this again.

    Blessings,
    Connie

  3. I'll 2nd your statement. be very very careful what you wish for , as we never truly know whats going on in someone elses life..

    We need to focus on being the best SELF we can and that will be job enough..

  5. Don't you think that sometimes God allows us to have what we wish for just to teach us a lesson...or does that only happen to me??!!??!! ;-)

  8. So true. It brings to mind one of my favorite scriptures. Philippians 4:11 - Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. We should all take a page from Paul's book and develop this attitude of satisfaction with where the Lord takes us and what He provides us with. Blessings to you, Ms. Cindy.
