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!

Glory Producers

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. 
Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
This is a great little reminder out of 2 Corinthians 4. Not everything is always going to go your way. Sometimes life can get messy and there can be challenges. BUT, the Good News is that the trouble WILL go away. You and I will become stronger because of it. The difficulties will produce incredible blessings if we simply trust the Lord and hold on to His Word. I guess you could say that troubles are glory producers!
I've been people watching many folks for the past few weeks and I've seen some that are struggling and some that are joyful. When I see those that have lost their smile or seem to be in a dark place, I think about the good that the Lord is producing for them that is just around the corner. I also realize how small some of my troubles are in the grand scheme of things.
What is God making in you and for you? Don't be depressed and don't get discouraged. This won't last long! Get ready for some of God's glory to outweigh your trouble and overwhelm your heart!
