My Sister’s Keeper by Tray Kearney
Ruth 1:16 (ESV)
But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.
You are not my competition
You are me.
I don’t hate you that would mean that I hate me.
I am not against you I am for you, as a matter of fact, I support you.
I want to see you win.
There’s enough room none of us have to lose.
When I’m looking at you, I’m admiring you.
I know your struggle. I know how it feels to pull it all together while you’re falling apart. I know how it feels to hold everyone up while breaking down. I know how it feels to be put last because you make sure everyone else feels first. I know how it feels to go to work to come home to work.
I don’t envy you, I admire you.
I don’t want to be you, I’m happy to be me.
I don’t want your life; I can imagine what you had to go through to become you because I know what I went through to become me.
Don’t let the enemy turn us against each other. Together, we can change the world. Apart, we will destroy each other. We have the power to uplift and build our homes, our communities and the way the world lives.
I am not your competition. I am you. Let’s bond together and show the world what we can do. I am my sister’s keeper from the beginning until the end.
I got your back my sister/friend
Father, in the name of Jesus, Unite us in sisterhood. Father, we thank You that You made each and everyone of us unique and special with our own gifts and talents. We thank You that You have enough of everything for all Your daughters. We thank You that there is no need for competition.
