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!

Remind Me SIRI!

One of the things I love about my Iphone is SIRI. I can tell my phone to remind me about a meeting, a list or a person at any time and it will set a reminder and notify me about it! Why is this important? Because I need to be reminded of some things!
Titus Chapter 3 begins like this:
1Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men. 
It helps me to take a few moments and think about the things that are important to God. They should be important to me as well! Things like obedience and doing good. Things like speaking nicely and not maliciously, never spreading gossip and being peaceable whenever possible.
So today, I am taking this little reminder to heart and choosing to start my day by praying for my city leaders, our teachers in the school system, the police and fire departments, city hall, and then I'm praying for the White House and for the leaders of our country. After I'm done I will live the day obedient to the Lord, obeying the rules of the land.  I will be a peacemaker, ready to do whatever is good with humility of course.  
Oh, and SIRI, remind me to be nice today!:)
