Part of your spiritual journey is shedding other people’s expectations about what your spiritual journey should look like. And shedding your own too, by the way. I am not you. You are not me. We started at different times and places. We will end at different times and places. Our journeys are just that…ours. I’m not sure that many if any of us should be trusted, but I sure do trust the author and finisher. Seek…and you will find. Not because you’re doing it right, but because God plans to be found…in ways and at times that are unique and specific to you. No need to compare with your neighbor. No good in judging your neighbor either. We’re all in different places on our own unique path. It’s not supposed to look the same.
The more you focus on what you are called to do, the less you become distracted by what someone else is or isn’t doing. It’s hard to run your race and your course while focusing on someone else’s race and course.
