Comparing yourself, or your life, to others will only serve to make you unhappy. When you compare yourself to others, you know all the dirty details of your situation but only the seemingly positive surface information about the person you are comparing yourself to.
When life isn't particularly going in the direction we planned, it's natural to immediately assume the worst and take matters into our own hands. It can be difficult to trust in a God when things just aren’t working out as expected.
What consequences have you faced from a life mistake? Have you paid a costly price for the mistake? Review your answers and reflect. Did you learn the lesson quickly or were you one of the more stubborn students? You know the one that makes the same mistake over and over expecting a different result. By the way you know what that’s called right? Insanity! Well today is the day to press pause and take inventory of your past consequences. Doing this will prevent similar future consequences that delay God’s plan and purpose for your life, and the goals and dreams you have.
