Our capacities in life are different.

What's your capacity ?? Driving into a fuel station for a refill. The car has a fuel tank capacity of about 60 liters. While the pump attendant filled the tank, a motorcyclist also rode in to the second pump. Before I knew it, the motorcycle was full and the rider rode off while the car was still at the pump. I got there before the motorcyclist but he left before me. It suddenly occurred to me that it would be absolutely silly of me to think "I got here before him. How come he is leaving before me?" Why? Our capacity is not the same. The truth is there are times in life when we are stuck at the pump of divinity. Those who came in behind us have gone ahead of us; those who learnt from you seem to have outran you; those who graduated years after you are now the ones calling the shot and it seems as though you are stuck. Could it just be that your capacity is bigger than theirs? Could it be that your own assignment needs longer preparation ? Could it be that your character is being formed for the task ahead? You do not know what you need. Only the One who designed the journey knows what is important. Why don't you hold on? People will often say my friends are doing this...My friends have done that... My friends have this...My friends are now...But I'm still here doing or having nothing. It is important to know that you spent nine months of formation in your mother's womb alone and you were given birth to alone. Therefore never classify anyone as your mate. God's dealings with/in your life is never an estimation of what is happening in the life of your friends or colleagues. God's dealing in your life is very PERSONAL and unique and should never be an estimation of physical and tangible things. Take your gaze off other people's path and concentrate on the race. Speedometers are different. Have faith... You will earn your own medal. At the Lords appointed time. enjoy your personal hustle Happy new month. Be blessed

Dear Noel,
Clearly your religion has given you some great insights here. So true that we get nowhere by comparing ourselves to others. We can be inspired by others. But we each have our own journeys, reasons for being here, purposes in life. Learning to trust our selves instead of comparing ourselves to others is a valuable lesson.

Thanks hon you are so inspiring with your comments

Hello, Noel,

You truly are a reflective thinker. I agree that our relationship with God is personal, and customized, not one-size-fits-all.

We are all created special and unique. Comparison is not needed. We have setbacks and challenges along the way, others might have move further ahead or faster than us, but life is not a race.

I have learned instead to honor each one’s journey, and to honor God with my life as well. :)

Have a great day!
