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!

You Can Do It!


Peter Marshall said "We are too Christian really to enjoy sinning, 
and too fond of sinning really to enjoy Christianity. Most of us
know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it."
Something moved inside of me when I read the words of Mr. Marshall today. I find myself being pulled towards things that can harm me so often that I wonder at times if I have the strength to stay the course. The answer is YES! In Him(Christ) I live and move and have my being. With Him all things are possible. In fact Philippians 2:13 says,"for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." He gives me the power to choose the right way AND to follow through on that choice! And that choice should bring the Lord great pleasure!
Don't let the pull of what is harmful take you away from Him who can only be helpful. Abundant life in Christ: YOU CAN DO IT!
