One of the most self-defeating things i can do to myself is to compare myself to another person’s success. This is especially dangerous when i am already feeling discouraged and compare my state of affairs with another person’s seemingly successful life. This kind of self-defeating tendency creates everything which is counter to God. It makes me angry at God, disappointed with Him and myself. I start finding fault and blame in others or direct it all toward myself which spins me into a deeper state of despair.
So i am determined not to look the world for acknowledgement, but to look to God and seek help and hope in Him. The world changes and is unpredictable, but my God is good and holy all the time. He never changes. I will look to a God who will encourage me regardless of my circumstances, and He will give me sufficient strength to endure and persevere.
Lord God, i am here, i am relying on You to keep me afloat, to keep my chin up and to be the light in my heart which nothing can extinguish. Nothing can take You away from me, and You will never leave me. You are the King of kings, Lord of lords. In You, nothing is impossible, and in You, i have hope of better things to come.
