A Little Reminder

I am not called to do what everyone else is doing. 

I believe that… and then I don’t.

I believe it on the days when I am being praised for what I’ve done.

I believe it on days when I feel momentum.

I believe it on days when I’m thriving.

But…

I don’t believe it on the days when it’s just plain hard.

I don’t believe it on days when I feel like the odd girl out.

I don’t believe it on days when no one else validates what I’m doing.

You are called to be you.

Don’t compete.

Don’t compare.

Don’t mimic.

Don’t envy.

Just lead.  Just be.  Just do all that God has specifically called you to do!

    Hi Jenni – YES! You are so right on– I think as women especially, we tend to forget that. We beat up on ourselves, and so often compare.. which winds up hurting us more. Thanks so much for your message. I’d like to share this with my readers, with your permission, and of course I will give you credit. Blessings on your ministry -

    Thanks for this! I printed these words out and posted above my computer for a daily reminder. I just found your blog this morning and it was clearly a divine intervention from the Lord! Thanks!
