Something we do around this place! As a matter of fact, I have one wall, outside on our back porch, where I "measure up" on a regular basis!!
I know....from your view, this looks like a total mess. It's really not! This is only a small portion of all the measurements that we have taken for the past 20 years!
It all started out on a 4 ft. board and has now expanded to this side wall.
The four boys and Tori have all passed me up in height. But...I still have a couple of years before MJ catches up to me.
What about measuring up in our everyday life? Who is it that we have to measure up against?
So often, we compare ourselves to those that we believe are smarter than us...prettier than us....more successful than we are, and perhaps more Godly than we believe ourselves to be.
We allow this thing called "Measuring Up" to Rock our world!! Our attitude can drastically change when we allow ourselves to place marks on the measuring board that fall below where we "think" we should be.
Lack of confidence, insecurities, guilt, and negativity can shorten the yard stick by which we are measuring.
What can we do? First of all....understand that God loves you!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Don't allow yourself to settle for less. Find your strengths and work hard to build these strengths.
Be committed to pursuing the Good Works that God has given you. Step out strong each day....following in the footsteps that HE has ordered for you. Confirm in your mind the Promises that God has given you.....
When we focus on God's promises....we are able to clearly see that God has bigger plans for us.... we no longer need a measuring stick!!!!
