Day 220

Several years ago, I poured out all the best words I had into a book proposal, only to get rejected.

At the same time, other writer friends were getting accepted by publishers. I said on the outside, “Good for them.” But on the inside, I just kept thinking, “Ouch…that means less opportunity for me.”

After processing for a while, I turned to God’s Word. He showed me new and life-giving realities.

Other people’s success does not threaten mine or yours. When they do well, we all do well.

And remember there is an abundant need in this world for your contributions to the kingdom — your thoughts and words and artistic expressions ... your exact brand of beautiful. Know it. Believe it. Live it.
