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!

Faith-Filled Bites of Hope

It is good for workers to have an appetite; an empty stomach drives them on. (Proverbs 16:26 NLT)

Have you ever noticed that when you are trying to eat the right things, every commercial on television is promoting the wrong things? Or you are not really hungry and sitting at home and then suddenly, that ice cream commercial sends you running out for your favorite flavor! 
The marketing companies know that if they make you think you are hungry, you will go after what they want to feed you. Your hunger, your appetite will drive you on
Now consider that God has given us a taste of the bread of life (His Word) that when eaten, will make you want more:) His hope is that your hunger for more of Him will drive you on towards more of His plan for you. Your hunger brings out a craving to be with His people, His family, His activities.
So rather than watch the commercials today and chasing pints of mint chocolate chip, take another taste of His Word and increase your appetite for God. If your spiritual stomach feels hungry, feed it faith-filled bites of hope from God. That's the true "happy meal" and you won't even care that it doesn't have a toy!
