If You Water Your Own Grass It Will Be Just As Green

Good Evening My Loves,

I hope today has been a day of fulfillment and blessings. Be thankful for right where you are today and the things you have. So often, we walk outside and instead of ¬†tending to and watering our own lawn we are too busy admiring someone else’s. If you take time to admire and water your own grass it would be just as green. While there is nothing wrong with admiring another’s lawn, we often don’t get an opportunity to see all the hard work, sweat and dedication invested into the final product. All we see is the beauty and curb appeal. ¬†Whoever always looks for greener grass on the other side, will never be able to appreciate the green grass that is right under their own feet the whole time.

The same concept applies to our attitudes in life. We tend to see the sun shining and rainbows appearing in another’s life but weren’t there to experience the storms, hurricanes and tornadoes. Don’t judge someone’s life by the chapter you walked in on. If you continuously compete with others you become bitter. If you must compete with anyone, compete with yourself to be better than you were the day before. When you compare yourself to someone else, that’s when you start losing confidence in yourself. You are the sole person capable of placing shackles on the feet of your own joy. Fortunately, you are also the one who holds the key.

You can admire the beauty of someone else without questioning your own. A flower does not think of competing with another flower it just blooms. Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, we were all created equal. We are unique and incomparable…you are you and I am I. Just because you aren’t where they are doesn’t mean you don’t have what it takes or your blessings aren’t coming. What you have to do is appreciate right where you are, in your own yard, on your own grass and water it to grow and it will be just as green as any other.

Tonight as you retire for bed, remember you are enough. You are right where you are meant to be and when it’s time for your divine appointment God has set for you, nothing in the world can keep you from it. Keep watering your own grass in faith and watch what God blooms in your front yard. You are meant to be in this very moment my Loves. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…Great Is In You!
