You Are Where You Need To Be

It seems like human nature to envy where other people are in life.  Many people envy their friends’ financial status, work position or even their prayer life.  When you’re healing from narcissistic abuse, you also may envy others who seem to be so much farther along in their healing.  I’m not immune to it- I feel the same way sometimes.

The problem though is there is no good reason to feel that way.  If God wanted you to be in the same position as another person, He’d put you there & nothing could stop Him.  God has you where you are in life for a reason.

So what is the reason?  Honestly, I don’t know.  However, I do know that part of the reason is to bless you & to bless others.  I’m not saying God is like a faery godmother, granting wishes.  Instead, He uses things that happen in life, good & bad alike, to help you to learn & grow to be more like Jesus.  And, He uses you to help others to do the same.  Even your mistakes can help others.

I encourage you today, Dear Reader, to stop griping about where you are, & to ask God to help you see the good in it or the good that will come of it.

    This is true.I know after we got married,hub and I had to figure out who we were,apart from our parents,and what wanted for ourselves,instead of trying to please both sets of parents (impossible),and always doing what they expected us to do.They learned to expect on,because a lot of those things didn’t happen.Everything from jobs,gong back to school,having kids, going to church,where we spen weekends,holidays and vacations became an issue.We learned to do things our own way,eventually;it wasn’t easy but I know we are far happier being ourselves,rather than trying to please them all the time
