Try Not To Compare Yourself With Others

Life’s race is not a sprint – it’s a journey. 
 
Instead of focusing on what we don’t have or complaining about where we are in life now versus where we thought we would be, let’s decide, today, to enjoy the journey and run this race with patience.
Nothing worth having comes overnight… sure you may not have some things you may be believing God for yet, sure you may be believing God for a mate along with other goals, but remember that the word patience in 
Hebrews 12:1 means steadfastness, constancy, endurance…it means the characteristic of a man who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith and piety by even the greatest trials and sufferings, it
means a patient, steadfast waiting for – a patient enduring, sustaining, perseverance.
So instead of looking around at how God’s blessing ‘her’ or how God’s doing that for ‘him’, or ‘them’, stay focused on YOUR race and continue to look ahead with Jesus as the author and finisher of your faith. (Hebrews 12:2) 
Run your race with patience and joy knowing that at the end of your finish line, and even while on the journey – you win.  
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.  {2 Corinthians 2:14}
