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!

Oreo Theology

Sometimes I am a victim of frantic behavior, urgent responses and hurried activity. I even get swept away by tsunami waves of "others needs" and "crisis situations".
In 2014 I'm trying something different. I've always felt like I was good at starting things well and I usually finish strong. But it’s the middle part that gives me fits!
When I feel like my rhythm is off, I can miss the "pace" of this life God designed for me. I think there is a divine flow to life and if we rush to begin and hurry to finish we can miss the best part…the middle. Which brings me to my new theology. 
I love Oreos. I take two cookies, eat the tops off of both and then merge them into a single cookie with double stuff. When OREOS came out with Double Stuff cookies I thought the rapture had come! I know that I go through this routine every time I have them because I enjoy the middle. So why can't my life be like that? I want to enjoy the "middle" portion of all that I do, not just my cookies! It's my OREO theology...ease into the plan, finish with a newfound strength and power and relax while you enjoy the incredible middle. 
I encourage you to try this new theology too. Don’t force beginnings. Don't hurry to finish. Spend time in the middle....savor the flavor! Let the divine pace and flow God desires move you through your life. Now I need to wrap this up…gotta go get me some milk!!!
