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 a Star!


Phil 2:14-15 Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe
Every time I read this verse it is a gentle reminder to watch how I talk to others. I need to pay attention to how I engage in conversations and conduct myself in meetings. Going about our days and our business without complaining or arguing is not always an easy task. But it is a necessary one. There is much to be said about living a peaceful and quiet life. We need to remember that others are watching us at the grocery store, the restaurant and even at church. Your life is a living testimony of what you believe and what is important to you. And the good news is that you become more and more pure as you develop your ability to stop complaining and arguing. We live in a crooked and depraved world. In other words, there is so much darkness around us. That is why we have a responsibility: to shine like stars in the universe. To stand out and be outstanding!
So do you shine like a star or are you often involved in conflict and discord? Ask God to help you be a peacemaker and not a piece maker. Encourage and help to lift up the spirits of others. Be a blessing to those around you. You can be a star!
