In this episode, Heather Creekmore and I talk about how to stop comparing yourself to others. A comparison-free life leads to joy, peace, and rest. Heather helps us understand how “the life of comparison is the old nature, not our new nature,” and then helps us see how living comparison-free lets us rest in the joy that is ready for our pursuing. If you’ve struggled with comparison, and constantly trying to be better (and who of us hasn’t?), you’re in the right place.
Have you ever found yourself stuck in the comparison trap? Change is possible. You can learn to live in freedom from constant comparison. The path to freedom is paved in prayer. These three prayers to stop comparing yourself to others will help you break this toxic habit and learn to live in the freedom of God’s unfailing love.
With summer on its way, you only have to check out at the grocery store to read story after story about how to achieve the perfect bikini body. Comparison is the thief of joy, so looking at those perfect models only serves to make us feel inferior, inadequate, and unworthy. In this episode, Heather Creekmore and I discuss the real root behind body image issues, and how to stop comparing yourself to others.
