My friends, I am so so so excited for what is in store this month! The Write 31 Days challenge is pretty well-known in the blogging world. This challenge is to write every day for 31 days on the same topic. Whoa. The last time I attempted to do this, I only made it halfway through. It was 2014, and I met Rory during that month, so writing just wasn't much of a priority anymore. #oops My topic for that year was "31 Days to Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman." Well friends, two years later I finally finished the series and turned it into my first ebook and later made it into a paperback! That series became my first devotional: Proverbs 31: A Life of Truth and Grace. Somebody somewhere that is not my mother is still buying that book, which amazes me. I digress.
In the last several years, with the rise of social media as part of our daily lives, the sin of comparison has so stealthily crept in to many of our hearts. It can show up in so many ways and steals our joy during moments that should be celebratory and sweet. And what's crazy about it is that it can sneak its way into the hearts of the old and young, rich and poor. It does not discriminate.
I don't know about y'all, but I am tired of allowing comparison to steal my joy. I am tired of allowing what I see on social media to dictate my perception of what is normal. I am tired of the fake. Anybody else? This month we are going to walk through what it looks to love the life you've been given. I am so excited to share with y'all what is on my heart and to learn with you. Let's do this!
