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!

The BIG Give

Have you ever tried to do something good for others that was so huge that without the intervening of divine support, it would be impossible? The Landing Community Church in Glenpool,OK is taking a leap that looks impossible through a normal lens. It's the first annual Christmas Offering. When you take care of others, God takes care of you. And God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask, think or imagine!
The Christmas Offering has three targets that will benefit the world, the community and those closest to us. They will complete an orphanage that can house 8 children in Uganda for $13,000. They have already raised $7,000 in the last 11 months. They are going to feed the community during their Tuesday FREE Lunch program for a year at a price tag of $6,000. And to make it even more personal, they will select five families in the community to bless with the most incredible Christmas ever. The budget for that is $3,500.
For many this may seem like a simple and easy goal but for this little fellowship of fully devoted followers of Christ this is larger than life. When you take what's in your hand, your house and your heart and surrender it to the Lord, miracles happen. This is the season for miracles! 
What are you doing with your life and resources that is bigger than you? Take what you have and give it to God and watch the amazing things that He can do. Together we can make this the best Christmas ever!

**If you would like to support any of these things-the orphanage, the free lunch program or making Christmas happen for five families, call The Landing at 918-321-2300 and talk to Rachel Sanders. Your tax deductible contribution will bless the world, the community and those that need a lift this holiday season. Thank you for your prayerful consideration:)
