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!

God's Glory



I've been enjoying some nice weather in Florida this week. I decided to trek to PCB-Panama City Beach which was hit violently by a hurricane not too long ago. It didn't take long for them to get things up and running but there are definite signs of the magnitude of that storm in the debris and the visible rebuilding efforts. Trucks and workers are here from all over the country. In fact, I met two of those workers last night from Palestine, Texas who were returning home today.
As I walked through many of the neighborhoods, I just began to thank the Lord for His goodness and mercy as I prayed for these families and their properties. In the place I am staying, you could see the destruction walking out of the front of the building but when you walked out to the back where the beach was, it was still a pristine paradise. What you see and feel determines on which was you go. Yes, that was my spiritual lesson for today! Did you get it?
This image was shot right across the street from downed lighting poles and huge trees. You never would have guessed that this side was also in the storm. 
Take a good look around today and give glory to God for ALL that He created. Sometimes life can be hard and storms can come. We can be surprised by the destruction. But we are also surrounded by God's beautiful glory. What you see will be determined by which way you walk.
