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!

Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction. (Psalm 1:6 NLT)
This journey in life that we are taking does not have to be difficult. There is a predetermined design that has been set up by our Creator. There is also another way that is filled with more of us than God. The Bible even goes so far to say that there is a "way that seems right to man but the end is destruction." That's not an end that I want to come across.
I try the best I can to make the right choices but I have to admit that many times I fall short. I need someone to watch over me and help me stay the course. I have realized that "Father knows best" when it comes to Cup of Joe's journey. He does indeed watch over me, prompt me to move or redirect and He always has my best interests at heart. 
My idea of the right start to each day is to surrender control: to turn the reigns over to the Lord and trust His plan. To say, Lord, please watch over me, my family and friends today." How about you? Are you staying on the right path or do you drift off from time to time? Perhaps you too could use someone to watch over you too? Trust Jesus today!
