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!

Rejoice Always!

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Today I want to encourage anyone that is facing a difficult season or stuck in a rut. It’s so easy these days to get discouraged and disconnect from the pack. Depression is at an all-time high and people try anything they can just to feel a little bit better. I love to get up each morning and begin the day by thanking the Lord for breath in my lungs and divine health in my body. I ask Him to bless my conversations, the meetings I may have and all the steps of my day. I choose to look for the best as I start the day.
This scripture says REJOICE: always and in ALL WAYS. Stay happy as you move through your day. You have a choice today to be happy or to be overwhelmed by negativity. Rejoice! Paul thought it so important that he repeated the command...REJOICE! 
DON'T BE ANXIOUS...notice that the instruction is to not be anxious about ANYTHING. Thankfulness needs to become part of our everyday life. Thanksgiving must become thanks living. Talk to God about your day, your conversations, your finances and your desire to bless those you love.
If you can rejoice and not be anxious, you will find a peace that is so amazing it can't be explained. It will calm you, protect your emotions and your thoughts.
