Don’t you dare compare
Don’t you dare compare.
You are a masterpiece.
“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].”
Ephesians 2:10 AMP
You are a symphony of ideas, creativity, growth, energy, laughter and love.
No one else can do what you do- how you do it- and with as much love as you do it with.
Your smile- your attitude- your words- are all trademarked to YOU.
They can try to replicate- they can try to do what you do- they might steal your color scheme- your logo-your website- but NO ONE can copy your business ethic- your morals and your dedication to your craft.
So keep pushing in your lane- don’t look to the right or to the left- that will only distract you.
“[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].”
Hebrews 12:2 AMP
Do you the best you can with what you have been given.
Put it all out in the field EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
“so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord [displaying admirable character, moral courage, and personal integrity], to [fully] please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing in the knowledge of God [with deeper faith, clearer insight and fervent love for His precepts];”
Colossians 1:10 AMP
If you fail- get up and do it again. If you don’t know how to do it yet- learn and come back around to it. Pause but never stop.
So don’t you dare compare- the world is waiting for your gifts and beauty.
