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!

Whole Lotta Shakin!

O Lord, our Lord,
 how majestic is your name in all the earth!
 
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,

you have established strength because of your foes,
 
to still the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, 
the work of your fingers,
          
the moon and the stars, 
which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
    
and the son of man that you care for him? PS 8:1-4 esv

For the last few weeks I have lived within the songs(psalms) in the middle of my Bible preparing for a series called Summer in the Psalms. I love reading them, even singing the ones that I know have songs I am familiar with that go with them. Sometimes I even make up new ones! As I get ready to preach this psalm on Sunday it really landed. I started to shout right after the first line: O Lord, our (MY) Lord, how MAJESTIC is your name in all the earth!!! When I think about the magnitude of God’s power, God’s provision and God’s protection I come to the place that David did…what am I that you are mindful of me?

Let me assure you today that God is indeed mindful of you…His mind is full of you and what you need to live the life He has designed you to live. He cares about ALL that is happening right now in your life and whatever it is, its going to be alright. He has put a new song in your heart. His praises are upon your lips and you can sing your way right out of the mess that is trying to silence you! Just like Paul and Silas in prison at the midnight hour, your song can set you free and cause a whole lotta shakin’ to go on! Go ahead, read these words today in light of how amazing and how incredibly  majestic God is today. And just try not to shout:)
