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!

Landing in the Ditch


The wisdom of the wise keeps life on track; 
the foolishness of fools lands them in the ditch. Proverbs 14:8

Life on track versus life that lands in the ditch. I wonder how many times in our life we find ourselves "in the ditch". Maybe it's an actual ditch but I would venture to guess that many times we have been emotionally derailed or mentally side-swiped and found ourselves "off road"to some extent. Being off-road can feel a bit exciting, sort of like a rogue agent, but I can assure you that it gets old quick. We were not designed to be Bond-like. We were made to have a bond with Christ! We were designed to stay on God's highway of favor. 
Imagine a road where your vehicle is not destroyed by potholes or a stretch of road where uneven lanes don't cause accidents. Life is full of obstacles along the way and only God can help us to navigate our way through the difficulties and get back "on track"again. Wisdom is making the right choices at the right time. Wisdom is what keeps you and I on track. 
Isn't it time you got back on the HIGHway?
