THE THIEF OF JOY

I saw this quote floating around over this weekend, and I must say it's one of my favorites. 
  I think it's natural to compare ourselves to one another.  I think that it can  be a good thing, but most of the time it's not.  At least not for me.  I compare myself to a fault.  
My house is never as clean as                  . My blog isn't nearly as interesting as              .  I'm not as good a teacher as              .  Just put a name in the blank and you see what I mean.  
At times these comparisons can totally steal my joy.  They make me feel worthless and jealous.

But then God will gently remind me of the oh so many things I do have to be thankful for.  I'm reminded that I'm a daughter of the King and He loves me for who I am and who I'm striving to be.  I am reminded that He is the only one I should be interested in pleasing.
And it feels good to rest there.
