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!

Drifting Leads to Shifting

It's crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we've heard so that we don't drift off.
Hebrews 2:1 MSG 
There are many things today that can try to derail us and take us off the course that the Lord has designed for our lives. Many people are blind-sided by financial woes. Others have relationship issues that send them off track. And some lose their grip by simply letting go.
Whatever the situation, we must be careful to not get sidelined by difficult times and challenging people. Jesus told us that this world we live in would have trouble in it. And it does not take long to find it around you. And then He gave us the good news...He has overcome the world!
It’s crucial to keep a firm grip on the Good News that we are hearing from the Word of God and the people God has chosen to speak into our lives. Drifting leads to shifting. People drift when they lose sight of the target. They no longer focus on what is right and they allow the winds of adversity to sway them to the left and the right. Don’t drift. Keep a firm grip on truth. Hold tight without wavering to all that God has promised you. He can be trusted to keep His promiseHebrews 10:23
