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!

What Type of People Matter to God?


Ever wondered what type of people matter to God? Psalm 10 has some clues:)

12 
Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 
Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 
But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 
Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.
16 
The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 
You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 
defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

 So, what type of people matter to God?     
       Helpless (v.12)
