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!

Be Patient

Everything comes to you at the right moment. Be patient. Do we really believe that? Scripture tells us that there is a time for everything. What I have realized is that I like to manipulate the timing and the end result of so many things in my life. What I want to do is learn how to trust the Lord, allow the process and enjoy the journey. Patience in the Bible is sometimes called long-suffering. I think that is because it feels that way. But when you and I are able to recognize our challenges, take a few deep breaths and ask the Lord for help, we soon understand that everything comes to us at the right moment. Those that wait on the Lord renew their strength. They rise up above the circumstances and develop endurance in so many ways. Be patient. Trust God. It's coming!
