Discontent or comparison?

So I have been been very discontented lately and feeling like my life is purposeless and that I am not living to my fullest potential. I don’t know whether or not these are valid feelings because I would take one look at social media and see women my field juggle their full time jobs while pushing consulting/freelance or other flourishing businesses on the side. So I don’t know if my feelings are valid or fueled by the comparison monster? Because if I think about it, I don’t even know what I want to do beyond what I am currently doing now and I don’t want to just keep up with the masses. Please advise anyone. #Comparison #contentment

“I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.”

I know personally how hard it is to be content in your current circumstances. I know personally how hard it is to be content in patiently waiting for God to point you the way you should go on a certain job title that suits you. I know personally how hard it is to watch the people you knew going far in life when you feel like you’re stuck in one place. The list goes on.

While social media is good to stay in touch with family members and friends who are in another state/country, social media can also be one of Satan’s greatest weapons to throw at you in your mind with a dagger for you to compare your life at the moment with other people’s life’s, make you feel insecure about your looks if you see someone who looks prettier or healthier and your wardrobe if you see someone who has better clothes than you do, make you feel like you’re not wise enough or worthy enough to get a job no matter how many times you’ve applied for jobs, make you feel like your walk with God is not as powerful or strong as others do, and vice versa.

I know this is easier said than done, but don’t give in to Satan’s mind games. If you see someone going higher on the mountain God has put them on, cheer on for them to keep going headstrong with obedience! Compliment someone on how gorgeous or good-looking they look today because they might have posted that selfie for an extra confidence boost! Compliment someone on their outfit for today because they are killing the look! Compliment someone on their health journey and give them some encouragement to keep moving forward! Congratulate someone on their promotion or getting a job because they’ve been fighting hard to get that job title! Joyfully and genuinely praise for those true children of God for how far they have come on their journey with God!

Be content in where you are today. God put you where you are today in your life for a very good reason. Let God give you the strength and renew your mind to be content in whatever it is you may be going through right now. Bloom where God has planted you.

*Reference: Philippians 4:11-13

Don't let judgements bring you down.

Judgements won't affect if you know "you" completely. So, know your inner self, all the opinions, good or bad, won't remain a concern. Or even better, won't exist. #knowyou #contentment
