Ep56. Crushing Comparison with Nicki Koziarz
June 20, 2018
Brandee Nielsen + Nicki Koziarz
Coffee Talk Topic: Crushing Comparison Today’s coffee talk topic encourages us to stop comparing ourselves to others! Host Brandee Nielsen says “pop-culture continually reminds us that we are not good enough if we don’t look like this or don't have that, etc. Comparison is one of the enemy's most suitable platforms for wielding his campaign against us. Comparing ourselves to others can impact our emotional health and sense of self-confidence in alarming ways. And there is a spiritual impact associated because it will contradict the truth in what God says about us. If we truly understand and believe that we are who God says we are, then comparing ourselves to others cannot thrive in our minds. Read Ephesians Chapter 1:5, all of chapter 2, and Psalm139:1-18. In them we learn that we are God’s masterpiece. Fearfully and wonderfully made by His own hands. He knit us in our mother’s womb and designed us for His pleasure and purpose. He seeded in each and every one of us, good works that He prepared in advance for us to do. In God’s love and His creation, we have no rivals. So if God’s word is correct, then whatever pop culture and the enemy says about us not being good enough is a lie. And the act of comparison then has no power over us, and no place in our lives.” Featured Guest: Nicki Koziarz We’re joined by Nicki Koziarz to talk about her new book titled “Why Her” in the context of comparison, confronts the question: Why Her? Through two striving sisters in the Bible, in her new book, Nicki uncovered six truths we need to hear, when trying to “measure up” leaves us falling behind. Lysa TerKeust said “Nicki steps right into our most vulnerable places with practical ways to regain our confidence while also celebrating the success of those around us.” Nicki is a wife and mom to three girls plus a handful of barnyard babies. She’s an inspirational author, Bible teacher, and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries, leading from her own brokenness that somehow God is making meaningful.
