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 Can Hardly Bear It!

It seems to me that there have been an unusual amount of bear sightings among the people in public places recently. And because I like to find a spiritual meaning in so many things, even bears, I thought about people that are facing unBEARable conditions in their life right now. Oh no, he did not just do that? I'm sorry but I just did! "Bear"with me for just a moment:)

In Matthew 23 Jesus was talking to the people about the laws and how to live right and then instructed the people to follow the law and not the people the made them. He said...

2 “The teachers of religious law and the Pharisees are the official interpreters of the law of Moses.3 So practice and obey whatever they tell you, but don’t follow their example. For they don’t practice what they teach. 4 They crush people with unbearable religious demands and never lift a finger to ease the burden.

Remember that you have an ally when life piles on you more than you can "bear". Cast ALL of your cares upon Him for He does indeed care about what you are going through. In fact, His desire is to give you strength so you can bear anything that comes your way. He'll provide for you more than you need so you never have to get by on the "bare" necessities.(I know its a different bear but it works here:) 
The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit? Proverbs 18:14 You can when the Lord is on your side and working through your life. And if you can "bear" one more scripture...
As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands. Psalm 119:143

Hope this one gave you a little laugh:)
