We’ve all compared ourselves to others. “Why aren’t I more like her?” “Why can’t I be good at that?” On this episode of God Hears Her, Sally Lloyd-Jones challenges that way of thinking. She shares with Eryn and Elisa the way that God changed her own view of herself and used the talents He specifically made in her for His glory.

Notes and Quotes:
“I knew Jesus loved me, but I thought God really wasn’t pleased with me.” “The Bible is not about what we are supposed to do so God loves us, it is about how God loves us and what He did because He loves us.” “When we compare ourselves, we are kind of missing the point that God has a specific thing that only we can do!” “The beautiful thing about Christianity is that it is the most inclusive of all faiths.” “It is so poignant when you realize the God of the Old Testament is doing everything He can to rescue us.” “Abraham didn’t have to sacrifice his only son, but God did. God’s heart is beautiful for us.” “He somehow works suffering to make it all the more beautiful for having been so sad.” “I look back now, and that [failure] was my promotion.” “I would love to get to the point that when things go wrong my first thought isn’t panic, but it’s ‘Oh, I wonder what God is up to?’”
