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!

Is Your Kitchen Preaching to You?

Sometimes when I preach I think of things that cause my mind taking a small detour:) I would love to say that every time this happens it is a good thing but I cannot tell I lie! Once as I was discussing something about Christ being an obstacle remover and a stain remover it hit me...my mind began to see all of the products around me in my kitchen and my laundry room that take stains away and remove dirt. My house is preaching right back at me every day! It sounds like this:
The bottle of SHOUT announced the DAWN of a brand new ERA...a new day! The SUNLIGHT begins to shine. I PLEDGE my allegiance to the Lord and the CASCADE of His love and peace begins. The TIDE starts to change. My guilty stains are coming out!
JOY floods my soul and I lift up my eyes and thank Him in the midst of everything. I have so much to GAIN and no matter what happens I have within me the power to be of good CHEER! Nothing is going to make me a DOWNy for with God ALL things are possible. How we FINISH the race is so important! Strengthen your feeble knees and build up your ARMs and HAMMER that enemy! So today I RESOLVE to have a new ZEST for life in Christ. Just call me Mr. Clean! At least my house and clothes are clean!
