Day 4 of "Free from Comparison" @illustratedfaith devotional "Free to Flourish"
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Woah...this one is a whopper. This world thrives on comparison, doesn't it? For me it's been a massive piece of baggage during different times in my life, for different reasons. One of the biggest is once getting married & wanting to start a family. After a few years of that not happening & then being surrounded by everyone else my age growing their own. It was torment. I mean, how could you not compare why it's happening for everyone but you? Infertility is an extremely rough road to walk. It impacts every area of your life. Nooks & crannies that most don't even consider. Everything is a reminder of what you don't have. But I have learned throughout this that comparing my life to other's was only killing me. It was rotting my bones. Making me miserable.
I'm thankful for a tranquil heart now. I certainly don't know what is in store for me as far as being a mom is concerned. I will continue to cling to hope, until He says it's time to let it go. But while I wait, comparing has no place in my life now. And what a joy that is.
