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!

What Not to Wear

My daughter and I used to watch nearly every episode of a show called "What Not to Wear". After seeing several shows with her I began to learn some things from the key points of each show. Life lessons from the world of fashion:) Things like: 
1-You can change the way a person looks by changing their hair color and cutting it shorter. Doesn't help me as my hair is changing color on its own by going grayish white and if you cut it any shorter you'd be taking away the skin on my head! Ted knows what I'm talking about!! And when Carmindy does makeup and brings out the beauty that's already there, well it's just too bad I can't do that because for many of these women it's a game changer and a face changer!
2-Clothes that fit right can actually make you look better! Nearly my entire wardrobe fits wrong. As Stacy and Clinton toss out the lucky makeover participant to give them an update, I realized that they would probably throw all of my outfits away:(
3-Your clothes say a lot about who you are. No argument here... I just want my clothes to shut up and quit talking about me! 
I believe that scripture tells us what not to wear as well. And thankfully, we are also told exactly what to put on. It says in Colossians 3:12 "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Just as your clothing expresses your personality, this wardrobe reveals your spirit condition. Wrap all of these things up in a coat of love every day and you will always be fashionable!
