Strength in the Background
I often think that I am not good enough. I have a friend who is successful in school and her career. At times, I fear being in her shadow. I fear failure. I fear my success not being comparable to hers in the eyes of others and myself. I don’t believe this is godly. It’s jealousy or envy. It shows a lack of faith in God’s Plan in my life. It demonstrates the lack of focus in my own affairs because I mediate on the success of my friends. God please help me with this issue. You made me, so I am good enough. Success is relative and the blessings you have for your children are tailor-made just for them. Forgive me Father for my insolence and pride in regarding my desires for myself superior to your own. True strength lies in strength and humility.
