I wish I looked like her, I wish I wrote like her, I wish I (fill in the blank). I feel this way about my friends! Not some pretty strangers I see on Instagram. Friends I see every day, friends that encourage me and love me. I find myself resenting them the second I find something that they have that I don’t.
But luckily I have surrounded myself with people that are constantly reminding me of my inner beauty. Find friends that remind you to care more about your soul than your outer appearance. The friends that encourage you and help you grow. The friends that help you find your confidence in the Lord.
If today you were given the choice to either envy someone or encourage them. What would you choose? Seems like an obvious choice but we unknowingly seem to choose envy over encouragement. Make yourself more aware that this is an option, you can choose encouragement.
Be the person whose beauty rests in encouraging one another.
