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!

Kittens in a Basket

My daily devotional came up today with a story about how our coping with problems is like trying to put kittens in a basket: once you get one in another one pops out! Well I can honestly say that I have personally never tried that but I can see the lesson. After a while of trying to put one in while one jumps out you may feel despair and eventually give up. Remember that it's always to soon to quit. Be strong IN THE LORD, and in His mighty power. You have strength inside that you will come out through prayer and praise today. And rather than trying to keep putting your kittens in a basket, just get your ducks in a row...that may be a bit easier!
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matt. 6:33
