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!

You Made the Team Part 1

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.  COL 3:12-14

Isn’t it an incredible feeling to know that God chose you? When I was a kid and we played games, often there would be times when we would be in a line and be chosen to be part of one of the teams. Standing there and waiting to be picked always made me anxious. When they called my name and chose me, I was very happy. That was just a game. God chose me to be a part of the holy people he loves every day! You and I are on the team! And now that I am on his team, I need to put on my uniform. I need to clothe myself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. All of these things will not only bring great success for us; we will look good too while we are playing the game of life!

Rest in the understanding today that you are already chosen to be a part of this team. You don’t have to be anxious or concerned that you will be overlooked. You made it! It’s game day. Put on your uniform. Now, get out there and do your best!
