Losing yourself sometimes means "FINDING YOURSELF"

Have you ever gone on a church trip in order to "lose yourself and "surrender" because people tell you it will help you?

Have you ever found that in working hard to "lose yourself" you actually found the real you?
Was it an uncomfortable discovery?
Did you let the real you stay after the trip or did you lose that by the time you got home?

 If your first concern is to look after yourself, you'll never find yourself. But if you forget about yourself and look to me, you'll find both yourself and me. Matthew 10:39

We often forget to keep in mind what makes us who we are and we try to find this ideal of who we believe we are to be.  We want to fit this mold, but what if the mold is not a clean cut, well dressed, well groomed teenager?

Are you a molded by someone telling you what you should be or what God is calling you to be?  Have you taken the time to listen or look around to see what God wants you to be molded to be?
