I guess what I am trying to say is that I feel like I suffer by comparison. I want to find that one thing that I do very well. I don't want to be mediocre anymore. I want to be amazing...I like the quote from The Help by Kathryn Stockett when Minnie says, "You is kind. You is smart. You is important."
I have recently started reading the book called "You Are Already Amazing" by Holley Gerth. She writes like we are girlfriends, friends, acquaintances sitting across the table from one another over a cup of Hot Chocolate or Coffee or whatever your drink of choice is.... It is a fun book to read but also very poignant at the same time. I am truly enjoying it and am hoping to realize exactly what her title says.
Why is it so hard to embrace how God made us while comparing ourselves to others?
Why is it so hard to find our own talents and shining abilities?
Why is it easier to listen to Satan's fiery darts than
to the sweet promptings from Heavenly Father?
