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!

Just One Good Shot

Believe it or not my Sunday afternoons can be filled with some relaxation while watching the best golfers in the world. These guys play on some of the most beautiful places in the country and having this on television just brings peace to the home! 
Most of these courses they play have one thing you must do: you better stay in the fairway! Going off to the right you will find some rough conditions. And should you go off to the left you may find a trap filled with sand. 
From this vantage point I see similarities in life too. To be successful in this life its always best to stay in the fairway. Unfortunately we make some bad choices and slice off to the right to find ourselves in rough situations and seasons. Some of us may make hook ourselves off to the left and find that we are in the trap, buried by some difficult circumstances.
For the seasoned golfer, getting out of the rough or out of the trap just takes one good shot. For the believer, the fully devoted follower of Christ, getting out of a rough patch or a trap takes one good swing. You can't win if you don't begin.
To be successful at any US Open course just stay in the fairway, keep your eyes on the ball and follow through. To be a success in life you must keep your eyes on Jesus Christ and follow through: finish what you start. Be diligent! The Bible says that "He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it."
One good shot. Winning in your own life just takes one good decision at a time:)
