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!

Fight for It

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19 having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck, 20 of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I delivered to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Paul encouraged Timothy to always hold dearly the memory of how he entered into ministry and to use those memories to fuel his passion to fight the good fight of faith. Being in ministry and using your talents and skills for the Lord is a battle! Many folks pray to be in full-time ministry and then once they get into it, realize that they should have prayed differently:)
When was the last time you fought for something that was important to you? When was the last time you fought for someone else? Too often we give in to things that should not be allowed to have power over us. Your family is worth fighting for. Your friends are worth fighting for. And your faith...yes, that is also worth fighting for! Now get out there and fight a good fight!
