Don’t let the “If Only” Win
Our lives are hard enough without the constant bombardment of what we think we’re missing. My life would be better if… You can fill in the blank! We need to stop comparing ourselves to the world around us. If only I were prettier, smarter, made more money, had a bigger house or better spouse. The world is not perfect and no one in it is! Stop playing the “what if” game and focus on the blessings that surround you. Appreciate the blessings and the good things that you do have. Adopt the attitude of gratitude and practice it! Look around you, do you have job, a house to live in, and food on your table? Then appreciate them. Stop focusing on what you don’t have and focus on what you already have. No one’s life is perfect. If it were, we would not have need of our Heavenly Father. There is no such thing as the perfect anything, this side of heaven. That is alright for we have a God who loves us, and we are made in His image. We are clothed with His righteousness. There is a God who loves YOU!
Ps 139:14” I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
