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!

Eat the Fruit!

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in obedience to Him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Psalm 128:1-2

Fearing the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It's the place where all of the great things of God start. Being obedient to what He is asking of us is the initiator. But what intrigues me today is the next verse. You will eat the fruit of your labor. Think about that for a moment.
What if the food you were to eat today was to come from the work you are doing? What would you be eating? How much would be on your plate? Would you be looking at a feast or a famine?
A blessed life is a direct result of a working life. With so many people feeling the crunch of unemployment we may have to be creative in our approach to labor. There are many kind acts that can be done that cost nothing. These random acts of kindness are part of the obedient life and the life that fears the Lord. Being considerate to each other is the way we move towards the blessing and prosperity of God.
Do you need a job? Sow some kindness. Talk about what you want to do. Go to a place that does those types of things. Fill out some applications. Share a kind word. It's all part of the working process and ALL things WORK together for those that love God!
Be blessed today!
