Anyone else feel like they are in a frustrating season?
I'm caught up in trying to do ALL THE THINGS with Grace because last summer was a bit of a wreck (not just the BIG thing that I won't type because I'll get a warning on this post...but she was in a brace 24/7 the entire summer too)
It's super easy to see social media as a highlight reel and think that everyone's life is perfect but yours.
If you're feeling discouraged (and even if you're not!) I hope these reminders encourage you!
1. Stop Comparing Yourself To Others
It's so easy to start comparing ourselves to others. (this is something I really struggle with!)
If we don't really watch our thoughts, we can be tempted to be envious of others instead of appreciating and enjoying what god has given us.
2. Remember that God Works in the Waiting
Maybe you feel like God has been silent, or you haven't had your prayer answered in the exact way you wanted.
Don't forget that God's ways are so much greater than our own- and His plans are for your good!
3. God is there through the mountains and valleys.
God is there-- whether you're going through a great season or a really hard season.
He hears your prayers!
4. Don't forget to stay rooted in The Word (aka- the Bible!)
It's sooo easy to get distracted in the day to day and forget to spend time with Jesus.
If you're not rooted in The Word, you can quickly drift away before you even realize what's happening.
What's something you remind yourself when you're feeling discouraged?
