No Comparison

"One of the worse things for a woman’s self-esteem is to compare herself to other women."

When I stopped being in competition with my friends, I saw my life take off.  I woke up one morning and said, “I will never ever compare myself to anyone else in my life” I was hindering the quality of life God had destined for me to live. He said in his word that he came to give me life and life more abundantly. I am not a size 3; I don’t have a big ole butt or an hour glass figure. I do have a beautiful smile; my eyes grasp attention and my presence demands attention when I walk in the room.  I realize God create me in his image and I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I taught a group of young ladies this same principle. Many of my friends said they are encouraged by my self esteem and outlook on life.  There I stood struggling with my self esteem. I was comparing myself to all of them. Today I am awakening from my slumber of confusion by the grace of God. I embrace my fat roles, my kinky hair, and my flat feet. I wear the best accessory my smile and I work it. Now my eyes are off my friends and my focus back on the true and living God, I have peace. God is allowing his glory to shine through me. My inner light radiates. I know my inner beauty is worth more than latest fashion and having booty that spans from east to west. (I still secretly want a big ole booty. lol!)  A woman who loves the Lord is to be praised. God said so… The bible says Charm is fleeting, beauty is deceptive but a woman who fears the lord, give her praise. Proverbs 31
