Need help saving me from well myself.
I have written about comparison before but I want to touch on it again. Comparison is tool if used in the right way can help people change, choose better and propel them forward in life.
In my case on the other hand comparison has been a tool that I allowed the powers of the enemy license to stop me from changing, choosing not so great things and to keep me stagnant from moving forward.
But how is this so, right? Well I allowed comparison to be used in a negative way to measure my life against another and seeing how I would never measure up to their successes or how they were blessed by God in life.
It wasn’t until I was truly (and I am still working at this so I have not arrived) seen that God has blessed me in my life. I have a roof over my head, food for the table and someone in my life as a Pastor/Coach/Mentor that is here along side me to help me heal and be set free to enjoy the life I am living now.
Comparison has robbed my joy, caused worry and anxiety, opened me up to fear to the point there is no peace, no display of love to God or others for what I do have. Where kindness is hinged off of wrong motive which all reflect lack of temperance and patience.
My Pastor/Coach has lovingly been guiding me toward a life more lived by the spirit and the fruit there of, more so than a life driven by what is carnal which is my thinking (my own logic and reasoning ~ self work or self reliance), my emotions which change like the tides and Gods word tells us to not be so tossed, my flesh which is the temperments that are part of who I am (these can and will change as they become more subjected to truth of what my temperment means to me and adding more exercise of the fruit of the spirit in my life).
This is my journey to save me from myself. I need to be free inwardly, love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, and those of the family of God he has blessed me with.
I am on the threshold of a new beginning and I am so excited to see as I keep doing the work as to the freedom inwardly I will have in time.
