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!

Do What You Can

Romans 12:13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
 Once again my heart is warmed and my spirit encouraged by the character and kindness of people. As quickly as the devastation hit our state, people from all walks of life began to gather together and do what I spoke of in the blog yesterday…bounce back and rise up. Our church, The Landing is in a small community and we have some really amazing folks around us and within our faith family.
In only took moments for some of them to organize their support network and soon our folks were joined with some amazing folks who raised money and put bags of supplies together for people and their pets too! I thought about this scripture in Romans and how we are encouraged to share and to practice hospitality. Do what you can, where you are with what you have.
If there is a silver lining at all within this terrible tragedy, it is that mankind does indeed rally together and do all that is in their power to do for others. From the superstar athletes to the small business owners to the busy housewife and the little pastor in a small town, God is alive and showing up in tangible acts of kindness across the country:)
                                      Praise be to God who ALWAYS causes us to triumph!
