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!

Take Me to the River

I used to know someone who had a plaque on their wall of a fish. His name was Billy Bass. Every time you walked past this plaque, Billy came to life and began to sing "take me to the river!". I know, you are wondering "what kind of redneck friends do you have!"
I thought about that fish today as I read Psalm 1:3. It talks about the believer that chooses to walk and stand and sit in places that bring life and not death. I am to be like a tree planted by the river. My life, nutrition and health are determined by the location I plant myself in. Leaves that don't wither and branches that are fruitful can only occur when I stay by the flowing spirit of God. If you feel weak, tired and unproductive, check out where you are planted. Is there "living water" close by? If not why not  join me today and sing with that crazy fish...take me to the river!
