  1. This was a beautiful message of how Dr. Ware endured, embraced and exceeded the experiences of being a college student how GOD shifted her life using her as a beacon of light for others helping others and allowing her to Thrive in the midst of her family and friends while telling them the true importance of tithing this story lifted my spirits my heart is full of the great story Dr. Ware shared of how GOD ELEVATED her as HIS WORD speaks of as long as we Trust HIM LET GOD continue to show HIS bountiful blessings in every way to the world.

  2. Such a beautiful, timeless message for us all. The more “seasoned” I become with age, the more the truth in your writing stands firm, Sis. Ware. I wasted time and energy in my 20s and 30s looking back and grieving over closed doors. Now in my 50s, I clearly see the blessing that closed doors hold. Everything isn’t meant for us to have or even to know, and that’s okay. What’s for us will be right there for us. We can trust in that. Thank you for sharing with us, xoxo

  3. Hallelujah!!!! Thanks for sharing. Like Paul, an apostle for Jesus Christ, I have learned to be CONTENT… I have learned to Trust GOD and to take Him at His WORD.

  4. I had to learn this lesson too. I was thinking nothing was happening but it has because of his Grace I made it through tough times. I try to remember everyone has a story and not compare too much.

  5. It’s so easy to get caught in the trap of comparison! What a blessing it is to realize how individual and specific our own path is, particularly when entrusted to the hands of a very capable and intentional God!

  6. Over the years I have learned to protect my peace, not to allow anyone to disturb my peace. I trust in the Lord and know he has me covered.

  7. This awesome and timely. I was just wondering this very thing. Look at God… thanks and many blessings

  8. Thank you, Christy M. Ware for your wonderful story. I can relate to your desire to have what others have. Yes, we do not know what is necessary for others to get and maintain so many things. God has a plan for each life; therefore, we wait for His blessings. Keep writing words of faith and encouragement. Congratulations on your published story!

  9. Attending the same university, I am very familiar with the scenario described.I continuously thank God for all He blessed me to have and not have.
    May you continue to see God blessings in your life.

  10. I am a 8yr breast cancer thriver and recently my doctor gave me that diagnosis again. I had a biopsy which confirmed it and was set up for surgery. On my post-op visit..the doctor said that they found no trace of Cancer. So my question to her was well what happened cancer don’t disappear.🤔 Her explanation was that it must have been removed during the biopsy. Me: So you mean this scar on my breast was unnecessary? Of course she wouldn’t admit that perhaps a mistake was made! I was stemmed and talked to several personal injury lawyers about my situation.
    One night I was laying in bed and I heard my mother’s voice and she said in short” Are you nuts! God’s grace has kept you cancer free and all you can think about is a scar that will eventually go away…and she was right! That scar left and I haven’t stop prasinig him for being patient with his child🙏🏾

  11. CW!!! This is WONDERFUL!!! I read it in your loving voice as I smiled reading each line. This is a message worth sharing and ON TIME! Leaning on God, trusting in him and having faith can seem challenging at time YET, God puts nothing on us we can’t handle because he makes no mistakes. Ive witness your acts of generosity, kindness and see the God in you. I’m blessed to have you and call you family. I’m so proud of you my “Lil Bonchi” 😘

  12. This was an excellent and timely read. I still struggle with this issue. But then I remember God has a plan for me and he has never left me or forgotten about me.

  13. This is beautiful and you’re such a beautiful person so loving the Christ really shines through you. The things that I pray for is that God will direct my path each day. I’ve learned that only what you do for Christ will last. Therefore, we must put our faith in him and him only. Thank God for you.

  14. I am super proud to know you Christy and excited for you! It it is awesome to see you walking in your purpose!

  15. Im not waiting on God, I’m simply asking for him to order my steps and guide me. At this point in my life, I’ve loss many important people to me and question my place in life. So, I’m leaning on him! Amen

  21. It seems as if you’ve learned a lot over the years and for that I am tankful and grateful! You persevered in spite of and that is a testimony unto itself! I’m sure that you had doubts and felt some kind of way many times, but you never took your eyes off of the prize and now you are reaping the benefits. Your journey was typical even if the results were not! You can look back now and feel a sense of pride in your ability to stay the course and overcome adversity and now you are getting the payoff! I am definitely proud of you and all that you have accomplished!

  22. I am truly a product of God’s blessings because thru time I learned that I am who I am and that accepting Him has allowed me to accept myself and all of my imperfections.

  23. This is such a a beautiful testimony! You’ve come along way and even better things are in store for you. May God bless and keep you.

  24. Christmas this is such a story of perseverance and Faith. Learning that most things that glitter aint gold, comes with time and clear vision. Your story is relatable and real. God seeing you through the struggle and allowing you to be Blessed and a Blessing to others. May He continue to elevate you with the desires of your heart and most importantly with the Blessings that he has ordained for you. You deserve it!

  25. POWERFUL!!! PERSONAL!!!
    FILLED with INSPIRATION!
    Dr. Ware fills each reader with “notes” from her heart. Can’t wait for her NEXT LIFE LESSON!!!

  26. So often when we meet and talk to people we don’t know who they are… We know that you are compassionate and willing to tell your life story to help someone else. I enjoyed you realizing your struggle was rewarded by your spirituality.

  27. What an honest and introspective story about lessons we sometimes don’t know are also blessings!

  28. I’m patiently waiting for GOD to help me heal my broken heart 💔 and for a better paying job because I barely am making ends meet.

  29. This is an awesome example of how hard work, perseverance and faith in God can lead to amazing benefits.

    Excellent!!!!

  30. What a spiritual message and great reading… be obedient and trust the Lord and blessings will be abundant

  31. This is a message I needed today. I truly believe we should not be counting other people’s blessings and be grateful for our own. Social media has lead us to believe that everyone else is richer, happier, more successful than we are. We are so blinded by these illusions, we fail to look internally and see how special we are. Thanks for relaying this message so beautifully.

  32. I feel like this message was for me— and it was right on time! Having the trust and faith that it will work out is hard when you can’t see the how or the when, but your testimony shows that it happens when it’s supposed to. What a way to keep others encouraged.

  33. Thank you for sharing your story with such courage and openness Sister. Your words are a powerful reminder of the importance of faith and trust in God’s plan for each of us.

    In a world where comparison often seems inevitable, your insights offer a refreshing perspective that encourages us to focus on our unique journeys. Your courage to share your experiences and struggles is truly inspiring, and it reminds us that we are not alone in our feelings.

    I hope others who read your post will be as encouraged as I am to place their trust in God and find peace in His plans. Thank you for being a beacon of light and hope. Keep shining and sharing your faith.

  34. Christy, your story is a blessing. Thank you for your honesty and for sharing what you’ve learned. Thank you for the lesson that comparison robs us of so much peace. Being content and trusting God’s plans for us are muscles we have to build and continuously exercise. I am trying to trust God to show me the next step to take on the road ahead and to let me know when to move or be still. I’m also praying for faith to be obedient. I will definitely be sharing your story to help others just as it’s helped me.

  35. Love this article and truly appreciate your insight on trusting God. I’ve learned in life that everything isn’t for me. Just because I want what someone else may have the reason I don’t have it because God knows it’s not for me. Even when you try to force it, God will definitely show you why you didn’t have it to begin with. I’ve learned to keep my faith and trust that God is doing what he needs to do for my life and for that I am grateful. Like they say, everything that glitters, ain’t gold. What God has for me it is for me. Again, thank you so much for this, Christy.

  36. God is so amazing and truly when we grow in our faith He allows these types of experiences to be revealed and they all point back to Him!! Loved this story!! Truly a blessing to read!

  37. It is an amazing feeling when you understand the work of God and what/when it is revealed! The “joy” that you gain in understanding and the clarity you receive in knowing❣️

  38. Congratulations to you my beautiful sister! I am so proud of you! Continue to follow in God’s footsteps and the plans he has for you! Keep shining! Keep up the AMAZING work! Love you sis❤️

  39. Patiently waiting on God’s to answer a few of my prayers.. and even if he doesn’t, he’s already done enough. I am grateful for God’s grace and mercy. This humble writing gives me a great lesson to share with my young high school graduates for encouragement. So beautiful!

  40. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful testimony, Christy! Comparison is literally the thief of joy and I think we have all been a victim of comparing our lives to other peoples’ lives and feeling down about where we were/are at the moment. But God! I love that you trusted God and went back to him. I love that no matter where we are in life, God always has his arms open to his children and is willing to welcome us back! Such a beautiful story!

  41. A great message and lesson for all of us. Comparison is the thief of joy! Thanks for sharing and being a blessing to others ❤️

  42. This. Was. MEEEEEE! It’s almost like we were the same person during college. This was even me during most of my 20s. If there is ever anything I would pass down to a young lady just getting started, this would be it. God sees it all and is working a story within each one of us.
