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!

Write Your Story

Imagine your story begins right now. Every activity, meeting and conversation is about to be scripted into a wonderful chapter called Today. There is a plot that is unveiling with every moment. Different characters will be introduced throughout the day. Somewhere in this chapter we will get a glimpse of the villain and somewhere we will see you, the hero, rise to the occasion.
I like to think of my life as an incredible story that is unfolding each and every day. Starting the chapter is always the hardest part. As I begin to put each sentence together the words start coming. As I move through the day each paragraph is written and the plot begins to surface. If I stay the course, the story I am writing will continue to be one of success, laced with joy and peace throughout. It will highlight strength in the midst of adversity and the gradual but overwhelming conquering of evil with good. My desire is that others will want to read this story too. Everyone likes a story with a happy ending and this one is spectacular. The hero not only saves the day but uses his life to save others.
What's your story? It's never too late to begin writing a new chapter. And when you write the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen!
