Who am I?

I was visiting with someone today and through our conversation we got to talking. At the time it was just a nonchalant kind of conversation but since then it has been stirring something up inside of me, enough that I feel it’s blog worthy.

Who are you? Ever asked yourself that question? Or, how about, who do you want to be? No, not the ‘who do I want to be when I grow up’ kind of who are you, the ‘who do you perceive yourself as’?

Well in our conversation we got to talking about weaknesses in our lives or things that we ‘felt’ were weaknesses anyway. I won’t share all of the details about our conversation but as we were talking I realized something; how easy it is to find your weakness and compare it to someone else’s strength. (Yes I’ve known this before but it sunk deeper this time around).

In other words, comparison.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great to learn from someone else and become strengthened in different areas through others. BUT I don’t think God allows us to be weak so that we may sit there and wish that we had the strength or abilities of another person.

Comparison leads to crippling and that is what the enemy wants, he wants us to lose focus on the fact that God made us “perfect in His image for His perfect plan.”

I have so much more swirling around my head on this but my head is spinning from all the Spanish paper writing so I’m going to leave you with this to ponder:Β In your weakness will you go to God for strength or will you allow the enemy to take you to the next person for comparison?

As veggies tales say, “God made you special and He loves you very much!”:)

Until next time,

Eva

  1. “In your weakness will you go to God for strength or will you allow the enemy to take you to the next person for comparison?” Really good question Eva! I still remember (oh – what was his name? The crazy guy who drove us around together our first night in Abby! John Something?) that great guy bellowing out to us at Spring Adventure “God is not limited by your weaknesses!” His words went straight to my soul and God has reminded me of them many times. I hope he reminds me of those words of yours too. πŸ™‚

  2. Ah yes, John Balzer(sp?), what a great man! We too will always remember him and his love for the Lord. πŸ™‚ Still thinking about our fb conversation and hoping to write more to you on that. πŸ™‚ Te quiero Melissa!
