Your Journey, Gods Plan

In life one of the biggest yet hardest lessons for me to learn is that it is okay to be different. It becomes so easy to look at people and the way that they live their lives and think wow I would love to be like them and have the money that they have, the friends that they have, the ability to live life the way that they do. One of the hardest battles that people fight is peer pressure. We always assume that peer pressure is a battle with other people when in reality it is a battle against ourselves. We battle our thoughts and emotions.We battle with our desires and our knowledge of right and wrong. However, what we fail to realize is that people pay a great price to live the life that they live. We think that people live such amazing lives but we have no idea what kind of demons they struggle with. The battles that they had to fight and overcome in-order to get to where they are now. And we envy these people because of their money and their status and because everything looks picture perfect on the outside and so we work hard to strive to be where other people are but we can never obtain it because we can never travel on their journey. What God has for each and every one of us will not match the next person. We miss out on so many blessings because we are trying to obtain a blessing that belongs to someone else. It’s okay to be you. Life may not be what you want it to be right now, you may not have achieved all of your dreams just yet, there may be someone who’s life seems so much better than yours but trust that God has it all worked out for you. God may  be about to take you to the moon but we settle for going as high up as the clouds because that’s what those other people and right now I am struggling to even get off the ground but if we would only just trust him. Matthew 17:20 says that if you just have faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains. You are enough, just trust the process. Do not feel like you have to change who you are because at the end of the day whatever God has for you will take place. Don’t be discouraged. Be unique, be you and, in the process find your voice and do not apologize for it. XOXO
