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!

I Will Say...


I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, 
my God, in whom I trust."

You find these words of David in the 91st Psalm. David says that God is a refuge and a fortress. Have you ever wanted to get away? Have you ever needed to find a place that was away from the drama of life and the troubles that always seem to chase you? David found such a place in God. 
When life got overwhelming he would say to himself this profession of faith: God is my hiding place and my protected space. God is my shelter away from danger. Not only is God a shelter, He also surrounds us with protection like a fortress that is not able to be penetrated. David made it personal-He is MY God. David knew that you cannot always count on people but that he could always trust in God.
Faith comes by hearing. Today, you can say it out loud like David did...I will say of the Lord-He IS my refuge and my fortress! His favor will surround you like a shield and you will be able to regroup, refresh and recharge!
