You can live your life just fascinated with others' lives, or envious, or frustrated, in a constant state of comparison with others...OR you can live your life.
I like Facebook because it does allow me to share some of my life and to be inspired by what others are doing... both to celebrate with them, weep with them at times.
But you really only do get only a few snapshots of people's lives that they choose to share, the good, bad, and ugly.
Ok, maybe you're not ____________ (fill in the blank) making a lot of money, traveling the world, dating the most amazing person, doing world-renowned things, saying wise sayings, hilariously funny...
Maybe your posts don't get more than 5 likes.
Maybe your name is not famous in the earth right now.
Kudos to all those who fit the bill on any of those areas but if that's not you, you don't have to chase their approval.
But you are significant. There are things that you can do and people you can affect that perhaps no one else can like you. There is a purpose for your life. If you don't shine, the world is quite dimmer.
My prayer for you today is that more of that purpose for your life is revealed and fulfilled with this new day given to you.
For me, that purpose is given in the presence of the purpose giver, the Author of all things who is eager to live in and through you with freedom, for the greatest joy imaginable.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, or love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity" (2 Tim 1:7-9).
