The thief of joy.

Every single person in this world has problems and difficulties. Every. Single. One.

While we would like to think that some are immune to problems, it’s simply not true. Wealth and fame do not make one immune to problems.

If you ever find yourself comparing your life’s issues to someone else’s, know that this unhealthy comparison doesn’t come from God. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle. Seriously devastating battles- of illness, of loss, of abuse, of addiction, of heartbreak. Battles that you might not even know about- and might not ever know.

How many of us hide behind the words “I’m fine” when we are completely broken inside? So many of us hide our struggles behind smiles.

Comparison truly is the thief of joy. If you find yourself longing after someone else’s life, just know that they’ve faced incredible challenges as well. They might even be facing them now, and you just don’t know about them.

No matter what we are going through in life- all of us can find peace with God, and with His son, Jesus Christ. They know what we are going through. Walking with them doesn’t provide us with immunity from difficulties, but it does provide us with peace in the storm.

Ask in prayer to feel peace in your life despite the challenges or heartbreak that you may be facing today.

God loves us and wants to help.

Wishing you a beautiful day!
