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!

Liquid Ministry

One of the things that I have always loved about ministry is that it is fluid…like a liquid…it’s ever-changing and always moving. At least it should be. I love being around people that are constantly sharing ideas and innovating new and better ways to do their jobs. I like it when things are changing because it means they are alive! The Bible tells us that the Word is living and active. A living thing will move. A living thing is designed to grow and mature.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. HEB 4:12

The other day I dropped a cup of water in the kitchen and when it hit the floor, it went everywhere! It was free from the cup and it could roll anywhere it wanted. And roll it did…all over the kitchen floor! It didn't seem like much in that cup but when it hit the ground running, it went everywhere! Like water that has escaped its container, ministry can reach out and hit places that may seem remote if WE would just release it. YOU and I are the containers. When we are broken and humble before the Lord He allows what is in us to be used. It becomes living AND active. We hit the ground running and soon we are having an impact for Him everywhere. That's liquid ministry!
