Joy robber….

I wonder if you know what it is to have your joy robbed….

I wonder if you have figured out the way to protect your heart and ensure you are able to live out the joy that bubbles within you…

I remember first reading this and not really understanding how it worked. It took me a while to realize how powerful of a thief comparison is…

And I began to explore and study and wonder and look for this thief that seemed to come out of no where…

And one morning, I remember it as if it was yesterday, I realized that I was the one who left the door open and often even invited this thief into my heart and life…

I began to understand that this thief was invited in when I allowed room for the first small thought of comparison…

I realized it was much less about the thief and much more about my willingness to protect my joy with honest and positive thoughts about my identity, my beauty, my giftedness and trusting in God’s design of me and in His plan for my life.

I wonder if you have a security system for the Joy that bubbles within you. I encourage you to set a sensitivity alert for when comparison sneaks in. Be bold and declare that there is no room for comparison in your thinking….embrace and love others for who they are and embrace and love yourself for all you bring to each and every day…

Live joyful and live free…..
