Comparison on Instagram

  • Struggling with Comparison on Instagram?

    Do you ever get a sick feeling in your stomach after looking at Instagram? I’ll be the first to admit it. I DO. I’m usually pretty good about protecting myself from social media but I am not gonna lie, it’s tough for me to not feel a little comparison or even jealousy sometimes! *UGH I am so human!

    Even posing for this pic in my sweatpants, I was like, dang. I’m so not stylish lol like these other girls at New York Fashion Week on my feed. I kept telling myself “DAN GET IT TOGETHER!” Maybe for you, it’s a friend group, a job opportunity, or a relationship.

    Girl, I want to tell you something today and I need ya to remember this! Write it on your mirror or save this post. REFUSE to let the devil win. All those negative feelings…THAT’S ALL A LIE! NOT ONLY ARE YOU ENOUGH, BUT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, AND THE BEST AT BEING YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD. I’m not the one who said it, the Big Man Upstairs did! Let’s get to his scripture, shall we?

    ♥️See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1)
    ♥️My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
    ♥️But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)


    ✨Let’s not waste another day believing words that GOD did not say.

    ✨Let’s put on our skinny jeans (or sweatpants) and feel like a hot sassy mama empowered in who GOD says we are.

    ✨Let’s scroll through our IG feeds (or don’t!, either way, lol!) and find PEACE that we are good enough.

    ✨Let’s live life in freedom and joy.

    Thank you for providing scripture and courageously sharing that it is all about God and not us!

    So true1 It is really hard to want to keep up with all of the trends and owning the trendy styles and stay humble and not greedy. I feel sometimes like everything in the blogger world is centered so much around buying and consuming but we have to stay grounded and remember that it truly all is vanity. Can’t remember the verse for that one but it is a great one.
    Love hearing about the reality and human side of blogging though. Keep it up!
