Stay in your lane

by Sherlette Rutherford on May 01, 2020

Living in this social media era we constantly being are bombarded by images that can cause us to compare our worth and accomplishment to others. Society has also established certain norms and milestones that we should achieve by a specific age. As individuals we all have aspirations and we sometimes attach a certain time frame to it. Once the time starts drawing near and we are yet to see results It's easy for us to become frustrated and discouraged. Sometimes you scroll through your social media timeline and everyone seems to be having children, getting married, buying homes or travelling. You begin to wonder and ask what's wrong with me? My encouragement for you today is to stay in your lane and live a purpose driven life. Stop comparing yourself to others. Your accomplishments are for a set time. Esther 4_14 declares "...Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” NKJV‬‬. When Esther came to the kingdom she was amongst other young women. Some were probably more beautiful than her or even from a wealthy background. However, She didn't let their differences discourage her. She stayed in her lane and found favour amongst the royal staff and the king himself. She had a purpose for a set time. When you are focused on God and living in purpose you will never feel inferior to others. You will never have time to compare yourself to others. When you stay humble and in your lane you will find favour amongst great men. When Your set time has come it doesn't matter who may have been there before you or who your competitors are God will show up and show out for his glory. 

Be encouraged, be inspired & be blessed
