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!

Hide & Seek

You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance
. PS 32:7

Most of us when we were little kids played a game called "Hide and Seek". The purpose of the game was to go off and hide and let someone count and then come find you. The goal was to not be found. 
As we grew older the game changed, but just a little. We still ran off to hide. The difference was that sometimes it felt like no one was looking for us. And for many, the goal is still the same...to not be found.
Isolation not only breaks you away from fellowship but it also makes it harder for others to find you. As a kid when I played the game and got tired of looking for those hiding, I would just quit looking. People are like that. We get tired. It becomes too much work and we stop caring.
The Good News today is that the eyes of the Lord are searching the whole earth and looking for you. Jesus cares. Once you may have been lost but when the Spirit of God comes looking for you, it's just a matter of time before you will be found! You can't outrun Him and you can't do anything that takes you out of the picture and out of the game. He will find you. Why don't you start looking for Him?
