Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

Like Riding a Bike

Have you ever had one of those weeks that seemed absolutely filled with activity, saturated in promise and ended at an even higher level than it started? They don't happen often but when they do you just want to smile and say thank you Lord for bringing everything together like you did this week.
The first time I rode a bike my parents held on to it until I got going and then something interesting happened. They let go! Fear and excitement elevated to incredibly high levels at the same time. I got so scared I forgot where I was going and I was so excited I forgot that I was scared!
Living by faith can be exhilarating and sometimes scary. But God tells us two things that he told Joshua: "I will not fail you and I'll never forsake you". (Joshua 1:5)
You can take your journey down the path knowing that God is with you, cheering you on and helping you to be absolutely successful and prosperous. So go ahead and pedal forward with confidence! You are going to be fine!
