And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men (Col 3:23)~ You feel like the child who appears to be loved and respected less than your siblings. You’re in a relationship where you’re poorly regarded and seem to be the only one trying! A fellow employee seems to step in and steal all your kudos from the boss. No matter what you do in life, you’re always compared to the one it seems like people prefer over you, and you can’t seem to get ahead no matter how hard you try. Man can’t help but fail us because man isn’t perfect. When we do our works as unto the Lord, God blesses our steadfastness and integrity. Over time, our faithfulness will be proven and yes, it will pay off. When you do your best, you will ALWAYS have the approval of your Heavenly Father. Feeling like second fiddle is tough! But you’re not a hopeless case. You don’t have to live in unhappiness and unfulfillment, either. GOD sees NUMBER ONE when He looks at you… a great Masterpiece that He fashioned in His own image. He is proud of you and wants to see you blessed, full of joy and at peace! Be confident in Him and be confident in yourself because you are His and He is glad to have you and more glad to bless you! Walk in THAT! He looks at you sees His best creation – hold your head up and give HIM your best!
