For the Days You Feel Like Less

Some days I feel like less. Less special. Less valuable. Less than someone else.

Maybe you can relate—there are just those days, aren’t there?

Today, I’m over at 5 Minutes for Faith talking about this very thing…those days when we feel like less. Here’s the beginning of what you’ll find…

There are days I feel like less. Depending on the day, it might be less skilled, less useful, or less liked by others. And sometimes, I just feel like less. Just. Less.
It happens when I compare myself to others, leading to jealously, anger, and feeling like someone else is better than me.
Maybe you’ve been there too, feeling… 
…like less of a mom when you watch other moms who seem to have it all together. 
…less loved when you see other marriages. 
…less valuable to God when you can’t do what He calls someone else to do. 
…less talented when you read or view someone else’s work. 
…less fortunate when you can’t participate in opportunities others can. 
I’ve experienced all of these at one time or another. And some more often than others. 
So, what do we do?

I hope you’ll join me over at 5 Minutes for Faith today to read the rest of my post. And if you would, leave a comment. I’d love to know you stopped by for a visit!

What picks you up on those days you feel like less?

In Christ,
Laura
