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!

One Degree

Can you remember the last time that God rocked your world in such a way that you saw everything differently? Our church is on a transformational journey that is going to change the way we do many of the daily ministry tasks. But the journey for the church is a collective gathering of individuals that have had a collision with God's grace and have experienced that humility that lands on you when you see yourself in light of God's amazing power. Suddenly things do not matter. All you want is to know more about Him and His plan for the world and how you can more fully engage in it.
I read a statistic the other day that pointed out how subtle changes can lead to major troubles. Being one degree off course on the flight from San Francisco to LAX can cause you to miss the airport by 6 miles! Just one degree off! In the same way, making small positive adjustments can bring about amazing benefits for the kingdom of God and the mission He has given you.
Take a moment today to ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing. Is Christ at the center of your life? Are your skills being used in such away that everything about you points people to the Jesus that lives in you? Have you had a collision with His grace?
My prayer for you is that you would not drift off course and that you will always be on point with the direction that the spirit of the Lord is leading you. Trust in the Lord and He WILL direct your path!
