I don’t get why everyone is so concerned with what everyone else is doing and the path everyone else is on or isn’t on. What is for someone else, isn’t always for you. Let alone the same timing. And what is for you, isn’t always the life for someone else.
I’m as guilty as anyone for wanting something someone else has (could run away with that thought alone) but you gotta stay on your own path, stay in your own lane, and most importantly, seek God for what His will is for your own life. He designed you, He has a blueprint for you, and He knows what’s best for you.
Don’t miss out on your own potential blessings and opportunities because you’re worried about someone else’s time-table and opportunities and what they have or don’t have. Wasted potential is always tragic.
In a DanT-inspired bit of perspective, I think so many people (myself included) are caught up looking at the silver someone else has, that they’re missing out on realizing Gods denial for that silver in their own life is a gift a yet to be given, wrapped in gold.
And, as Steve Jobs put it, often people don’t know what they want until you show them. You may think something is gold, but God could show you it’s only silver, and reveal and bless you with that Gold you haven’t even seen or known. He’s done it to me before and I believe he’ll do it again.
Matthew 6:33: BUT seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
