I still love you. Grow and be great.

I still love you. Grow and be great.

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.

“At times we may feel as though there is times when our love is beyond control, extremely potent and over-passionate, yet there is a growing fissure between your thoughts and actions. You can’t tell the person you love that you feel so because you feel that way”
