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!


One of the characteristics of a mature believer is endurance. Great endurance and patience will be evident in the life of one that trusts in the Lord. Take a closer look at that word: endurance...U R right in the middle of it! When I think about endurance, I think about sports. If I want to run a long race I have to build up my endurance. I have to begin running. As I get stronger and can endure more, I add distance to my run. Weight training is the same. I start with lighter weights and increase my repetitions until I am able to handle that weight easily. Then I add weight if I am trying to build muscle.

As believers we should be able to endure difficulties. There are many things that we may never get over but we can endure. I think about Jesus and the cross; the bible says that "for the joy set before Him He endured the cross..." It was hurtful and it was difficult. But He focused on the future  in order to endure the pain.

You will never understand what you are not willing to stand under. You have been fully equipped to handle anything that can come against you. You can stand up to evil and win!

Are you lacking in endurance? Add a few more repetitions and continue your strength training. There are great benefits to hanging on and staying in the fight until you overcome!

"We pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[d] to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light." Colossians 1:10-12
