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!

Oh My!

Last night I spent some time enjoying a variety of musical tastes and presentations. I always watch the Grammys to see what kind of things are happening in music around the world. I had quite a few Oh My! Moments this year!

Chatting with others and commenting on the social networks makes for some great and playful banter back and forth. It seems there is something for everyone and no matter how I feel about a certain style of song, someone out there just loves it!

We are all unique in our own ways and when I see so many types of things as I did last night, I think about our church and many types of people that go there. Each one has a specific and unique calling that benefits the entire Body. Put them all together and you have one special place.

Celebrate the different people and personalities in your life today. Enjoy the differences that we have and laugh a little. A cheerful heart is like good medicine:)
