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!

Better than Michaels Hologram?

After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Mark 9:2-4
It's hard to imagine what it might have felt like to be one of those inside the "circle of trust" Jesus had. Peter, James and John were part of the inner circle and got to be involved in things that no one else did. In this text Jesus took them up to the top of a mountain and he changed right before their eyes! Bright white light consumed them and then suddenly there appeared Elijah and Moses talking to Jesus! Unbelievable! Talk about a Kodak moment! Kind of makes Michael Jacksons hologram at the Billboard Music Awards seem lame:)
The closer we get to Christ the more amazing life can become. This same trio went as support to the Garden before he was arrested and crucified. They also got to go inside Jairus' home to watch the 12 year old daughter come back to life. Miracles and astonishing things were part of their daily routine.
What's your daily routine like? Are you seeing some incredible things brought about by the hand of God? Get closer to Him today through prayer and through meditating upon His Word and the promises for you and your life. He will become whatever you need Him to be to bless your life.
