“This is what I have seen: It is good and proper for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the fruits of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life that God gives him; for it is his inheritance.” – NKJV Ecclesiastes 5:18
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU HAVE
We won't be tempted to compare or wish we had what someone else has if we fully understand and accept this. You won't be thinking to yourself, "If only I had their talent..." No, God would have given you the talent if He wanted you to have it. Instead, make the most of what you have. Make the best of the situation. Don't say to yourself, "If only I had her looks..." No, God gave you your appearance. That isn't a coincidence. Your life has been designed specifically for you.
According to the Bible, God has given us the right to enjoy what has been given to us. That simply means that no one else has the power to make you happy. You would have more success, money, friends, and a better career, but bringing someone else into your life might not be as enjoyable for them as it is for you. - Each of us was born to compete in our own race.
Now it's up to you to step up and take control of your life. Be proud of who you are, including your appearance, abilities, ability, and personality. God is honored when you are passionate about who you are. That's when God will breathe into you, and the seeds of greatness inside you will sprout and grow!
Father, I thank You for bestowing upon me the gifts, talents, and abilities that allow me to enjoy life while also carrying out Your will. In Jesus' name, I choose to place my faith and hope in You today, believing that You have prepared me for the destiny You have planned for me. Amen to that.
