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!

The 11th Hour

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.

I’m not sure what is going on in your life right now but I am engulfed in one of those 11th hour seasons. Maybe I should say 11:59 seasons! Those times when unless God does something miraculous and over the top, dramatic changes are going to occur. Sometimes it makes me laugh and other times it makes me cry. It’s just so interesting to me that in the life of many people I know, we seem to see our best “spiritual awakening” in the 11th hour. And every time I always question why God could not have done it soonerJ
I guess its because my faith needs to keep being stretched. Trials and challenges are making me a better preacher and teacher…a better dad and friend. Didn’t James say, “count it all joy”?

I am praying for some miracles this weekend. My family needs some, my church needs some and Cup of Joe needs some too! I am praying for you and your jobs to be blessed and for you to prosper in every area of your lives. Pray for me and lets see what God wants to do this weekend. I believe it’s going to be miraculous!
