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!

Live a Little

Ephesians 5:1 Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.

Freedom is a good thing. It's even a God thing. Christ HAS set us free so that we can live a free life. To do so will require us to make some adjustments. Why? Because freedom doesn't always mean liberty. Think about it. When the children of Israel were liberated out of Egypt, they were set free of the bondage of Pharaoh. But it wasn't long until the could be heard grumbling about the way life was where they were. They had to learn to adjust to the new found liberty and take a stand IN freedom. As Moses began to lead them and God began to orchestrate a plan to bring them to Canaan, they had to deal with this new life and the structure that God was setting up for them so that they could live the free life. They began to look at this freedom as a new kind of bondage. They were seeing this as a harness of slavery rather than an avenue of freedom.

You and I can be saved, healed and delivered from anything that holds us captive.To be delivered means that the hold of that bondage has been destroyed. Your circumstances may not change but your perception of them can. It all begins with a relationship with Christ. Jesus is enough. When Christ lives in us, He brings power to break off the chains. He lives in us to help us truly experience that free life.

So how about you today? Are you living in that freedom that Christ can give? Or have you allowed things, people or circumstances to put a harness of slavery on you? Take your stand today! Stand in freedom and live life the way God purposed it to be for you. Guidelines are not cumbersome rules but rather white lines on the road to help you stay on track. So live a little!

Work like you don't need the money, love like your heart has never been broken, and dance as if no one is watching. (Satchel Paige)
