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!

Mis-takes

"The greatest mistake you can make in
life is to be continually fearing
you will make one."

- Elbert Hubbard

There are many people today that never move forward because they constantly worry about making a mistake. And when fear enters the picture, well, that can stop everything! Confucius says "Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes."
Most of the things that we worry about don't even happen. Faith enables you to step out when there is nothing to step on to. Faith in God realizes that even if we fall, we have within us the power to get right back up and try again. 
So stop counting the reasons why you can't begin and jump out there with blessed assurance that God will help you every step of the way. You are going to have seasons when you make a mistake. Just consider it a mis-take and take it over! Have a great weekend!
