This quote is so true. Don’t compare yourself to others.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.
My words of advice for today, Don’t compare yourself with others, rejoice with them in their abilities and talents but know that God did not make us the same.
If we all had the same talents and abilities the world would be boring and unbalanced.
So love who God made YOU to be.
Don’t be afraid to take time and smell the roses. 🙂

Some times we are so rushed to get things done, and we should make good use of our time but not so fast that we miss out on the beauty and the people around us. So today I encourage you to stop for a minute, take a deep breath, look around. Is there anything you are missing out on?
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
I really really really like listening to music but the other day when I was working I realized that it was quiet, and my first thought was to turn on some music but then I head God’s still, small voice saying, Be still and know that I am God.
And I Just stood still for a moment and thought, He is God. It flushed out all the worries that would normally fill my thoughts. To know that He is God and He loves me, He cares about me, He wants me to cast my cares on Him, He gives me peace in the midst of turmoil. He sent His only son to die for me and He does and is so much more.
Can I ever comprehend what it is to know that ……..
HE IS GOD!
I sought the Lord, and he heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
As I sit here and write this post, I am trying to think of something to write along with this verse, but it is written so simply, It needs no commentary.
It is so simple and incredible that I think it is hard for us to believe.
So please just read it for exactly what it says and know that God is true to His word.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
Perfect Peace and Everlasting Strength, I did nothing to deserve such promises but that is how much my Jesus loves me.

“Most people think that God asks ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and He does at times. But most of the time He asks extraordinary people to do very ordinary things.”
David and Jason Benham
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Today I am thankful for the chance to get together with family and friends .
Not everybody has family and friends to gather with today.
It does not matter how the meal turns out or if we forgot to make one of our traditional dishes, it is our attitude that matters.
Are we truly thankful?
I have heard it said that “A thankful heart can make any meal a feast.” and it is so true.
Look around you today and count your blessings and it WILL surprise you what the Lord has done.
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20
