Don’t Compare–not worth it! James 4 part 1

It is inevitable—our myopic view of life compels us to want anyone elses life.  We know what is not working in our own lives and without fail; we think a simple change in circumstance will alleviate all struggle.  Common sense dictates that if we all feel that way, then the chance of of it being true is very slim.  We cannot dwell on what we do not have, or what we cannot change.  Instead, we must learn to be content with what we have and rejoice and mourn appropriately with those on the family.

 

The journey is difficult.  The source of obstacles vary from health, to finance, to sin in our lives.  Biut, we have to be sure that he who has begun a good work in us will carry it to completion until Christ’s return.  Do not try to figure iut God’s plan, simply submit to it and seek his face.  Help me Lord to submit to your plan and follow you.

 

God Bless you

 

What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? 2 You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. 3 And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.
