Praise – express warm approval or admiration of.
Your (current) position in life is not to be compared. You are not a mistake. Your marriage, relationship, job, where you live, etc. was and is all a part of the plan. Give unto God wholeheartedly at your (current) capacity out of love for Him not for advancement. Be who He’s called you to be and serve there, not at what looks good from the outside of someone else. Know why you were created, ask God to define your purpose- and live it out! Don’t worry about if you’re the only one not married (yet), with no children (yet), doesn’t own a house (yet), job doesn’t pay over $40K (yet) – its okay, that’s not your position YET! God will elevate you, when He knows you’re ready. When you’re not seeking Him solely for gain, but because you love, honor, and serve Him inspite of! And whether or not those things come to pass, you’ll continue to serve and praise Him because you Love Him. What if you viewed your YETs in life as BUTs? Because your future testimony will go something like this – I once wasn’t married BUT God, I once didn’t have children BUT God, I once didn’t own a house BUT God, my job didn’t pay over $40K BUT God…
