Are you carrying someone else’s mirror around? When you look in the mirror, do you see you or someone you’re trying to be?
God made you to be you, not someone else. We walk around envying and competing against others. What God has for someone else, is for that someone else, not you. God has something only for you.
We all have gifts and talents. What God has put in you, is only for you. God made you to look the way you look because that’s how He want you to look, not like someone else.
There’s a difference when you’re inspired by someone and being like someone. It’s not God’s plan for you to be like someone else, it’s yours. Trying to be like someone else only brings on frustration for you, not the other person. You are not able to be happy for them when they have something to celebrate, because of your envy and competition.
You can’t recognize there is something to celebrate in you, because you’re trying to be like someone else.
Give them their mirror back so that you can see yourself, your talents and gifts God has given you. You have something within you that God has given only you, and only you can achieve what God has put in you. Be the you God made you to be, you’d be surprised how awesome you are!
Psalm 139:14 (KJV) – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Ephesians 1:4 (KJV) – according as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.
