This. Comparison kills.
God alone is my boast. .
I don't mind sharing my failures, my doubts, my struggles, and my intense battle with fear. There are two Scriptures in particular that have really been my rock in reminding me that I'm fighting from victory. I don't ever want to pretend that my life is always together...that my IG is replete with perfectly staged, filtered photos of the latest poses and a funny, yet witty quip. I pray that my posts come across as real, raw, and authentic. That life can indeed be painful and unexpected but Jesus is and will always be our lifeguard, our anchor, our Rock, the one on whom our gaze must always be upon. I don't have to be afraid of failure, nor do I feel like I have to hide it when I do. Failing is not the same as falling. We are not defined by our mistakes. Stay in your lane and know that God has you in the palm of your hand. .
But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 TPT
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
Jude 1:24 NKJV
