1 Peter 5:8 NKJV
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

I want to take you back to the very last facebook post or text message you received. What was it? Was it a friend telling you about how good her outing was that YOU didn't get invited to? Was it a picture where you believe she looks better than you? This past weekend, I got an official name for this deadly disease for most women. My dear friend, Brenda Blankenship refers to it as
"comparisonitis". If you're anything like me, you suffer with this every day. For me, it doesn't have to be a facebook post or text message. It can be a lady in the choir who is a better first soprano. 
It can be a friend who I think is a much better writer than me. It's a friend who has a book (or several books out long before I ever have my first one written. Ladies, God doesn't want us comparing ourselves to others. He made us each individually. He made us with our own talents and abilities. Today, let us take God at His Word that we're all unique in His sight.
Father, I pray for the sisters reading this post. Let each one of us know how special we are to You. Remind each of us that we're created with a very unique purpose and only You can fulfill it in
our lives.  In Jesus Name, Amen.


  1. This is such an important message, Jamie, and one we should all take to heart. God made us exactly who are are for a purpose, and His purposes are always good!

  2. Love this Jamie. Thanks for a very important lesson.

  3. It's so easy to compare ourselves to other people. Thanks for the reminder that we're each unique for a reason. God has a different plan for each of us.
