Strong By Design Podcast

Jun 15, 2022


From where we stand, things can "appear" to look better off in the distance. 
The famous saying ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’ is often referred to by people pursuing interests other than the ones they’re currently involved with.  

However, in reality it’s more like the other famous phrase that goes like this, ‘good from afar but far from good’.  

Honestly, how well do we really know other people's stuff? Most people post their highlight reel life and not the day-to-day grind and frustrations but the image they want others to see. 
The grass from afar looks perfect, green and full.  However, when you examine it up close you realize it's not so perfect, it's flawed, needs weeding, has dry patches and needs to be cared for just the same as the grass you're standing in. 
Remember, the enemy wants us looking backwards... but we are called to look to the present and the future. So, take care of the grass where you are and spend time focused on it. 


"The windshield is much larger than the rear window for a reason. Why? Because we need to see where we are headed, more than we need to see where we've been." - Chris Wilson
