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!

He Hears Us

I talk to people every day that feel like their prayers are never heard by God. Some believe this is because of the way they have lived lived their lives while others feel this way simply because they haven't developed a personal relationships with Jesus Christ.
The scripture highlighted in our #saturdaysmiles video today brings some clarity to all of this:
"This is the confidence that we have in approaching God: that is we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him." 1 John 5:14-15 NIV
He hears us. He answers us. Life is better with Him than without Him. Today, you can approach God with confidence. He will hear and he will answer and YOU will be better in every way because of it!
