The Antidote to Comparison

Have you thought recently…

  • “I wish I were more like…”
  • “How come that person gets ________ but I get _______?”

  • “I wish I could have the opportunity to _______ like so-and-so.”
  • The list goes on.

Don’t Take 30 Years to Find Your Voice

God is the most creative person in the world. He created the whole world using His voice. There it is in the text, He spoke when there was nothing, and then it came into existence. “Let there be” and there it was: day and night, land and sea, plants and fruits, birds and fishes, animals and humanity.

You were created in the image of God as a one-of-a-kind original masterpiece, with a completely unique fingerprint and voiceprint. There is no one like you, not in history past or in the future generations to come. You’re not a duplicate or copy. And, you have something to say that only you can say it in the way you say it.
