  1. Aliza,
    I wrote a post this week about being under attack. In my years of living, I’ve learned that one of the sure signs I’m under attack by the enemy is that I find myself sucked into the comparison trap. The word “enough” is a red flag that the enemy is at work. He wants to engage our mind with a negative thought…get us to ponder it, roll it around in our mind, argue with it even. I try to filter these thoughts that I’m having and ask myself if they line up with what I KNOW to be God’s true nature and if not, it’s time to slam the door on those thoughts and kick the enemy to the curb. In God’s eyes we are more than enough simply and wonderfully because we are His workmanship and He calls us His own. Praying that you can recognize those thoughts for the garbage that they are. We ALL struggle…and the enemy is vicious, but God is always greater!
    Blessings,
    Bev xx

    • It is time to slam the door on those thoughts — and I’m grateful for you and your prayers, Bev! xx

  2. I have an issue with comparing myself to others. A lot. “I’m nowhere near as skinny as her” and “I’m just not good enough” cross my mind quite frequently. This is something I am working on. Plain ol’ human nature tells us we’ve got to be stronger, faster, smarter, all-around better than the rest. God tells us He loves us the way we are.

    • You’re not alone with those thoughts either, Casey, but you’re right — that’s such a human thing to do! And thankfully God is so much greater and lovelier and larger than all of that humanness.
