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!

Who Are You Placing Your Hope In?

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19 NIV

I'm holding out a lot of "hope" these days. The Bible tells us that hope is an anchor...it settles us into the thing or the person we are hoping in. That is why it is so important that we place our hope in something that works. Someone once gave me an acronym for hope that said it was
Having Only Positive Expectations
I like that! I want to stay positive even when things are not going my way. Seems that I always want them to happen on my terms or in my timetable. I've learned these days that the Lord knows quite a bit more than I do. He knows the things I should do and the people I should connect with. And He knows the best time for all of it to happen!!
So who are you placing your hope in today? People may let you down. Things may get in the way. But when you trust in the Lord and hold out hope in Christ, you are setting yourself up for something truly special. So take a deep breath and relax. Hope in God. It's going to happen!
