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!

Make a Decision!

"How long will you waver between two opinions?" It's a question the prophet Elijah asked to 450 prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel right before He asked God to show up strong on his behalf. He had already made his decision and now he He wanted to know when they would make a decision to get off of the fence and be fully devoted, one way or another.
There is nothing more frustrating than being in a room filled with indecisive people. Perhaps our culture has beaten down folks so long for making the wrong choices that we are just too afraid to commit to a yes or a no. We know that there are consequences for our choices and we really don't want to face them if we are wrong.
In the Book of James we are reminded that double-mindedness is crippling. It says that a double-minded man(one who cannot make a committed decision) is unstable in ALL his ways. After that it goes on to say that a double-minded man should not expect to receive anything from the Lord! Really? That's pretty powerful!
Remember this...a decision produces energy. Good or bad you are moving. A good decision moves you forward in the right direction and a wrong decision moves you forward in the wrong direction. But you are still moving. Don't allow yourself to become complacent and fearful to commit because you do not wish to face the music of the consequences. Faith is that ability to step out when nothing is there and find something to stand on. When you make a committed decision you give God something to work with. He cannot direct your path if you refuse to take a step!
Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean upon His understanding. In All your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Make a decision today to make something positive happen for you and in the life of another person.
