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 plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the LORD weighs the motives. Commit your works to the LORD, And your plans will be established. The LORD has made everything for its own purpose...
Proverbs tells us that we can have many plans but it is the Lords purpose that prevails. Pro 19:21
 That is what we should seek...His purpose. The two most important days in a persons life are the day that they are born and the day they discover why. The Lords purpose always prevails though it takes most of us some time to figure that out. If we ask the Lord to help, He promises to allow our thoughts to be established. In other words He will help us make up our minds to do life His way and our plans will be successful.
This month, many of my friends are graduating. And my youngest daughter Jordan finished high school last night! So I'm one proud dad knowing that she has a lifetime of great things ahead. Graduation is not only a step out of one season. It's a step up into another. So for all of those finishing one part of life and stepping up and out into the next, congratulations! Commit what you are about to do to the Lord and you will end up with the tailor made design that He intended for you! The best is yet to come!
Me, Jordan, Justin, and Brandon
