This week I really felt like God was showing me how to find “who you are” and really establish your identity. Not only for myself but for those around me & I wanted to be sure to share it with you.
Life throws some crazy stuff at us and it’s important to realize that when your identity is based off of what happens to you or what’s going on around you, you will never be secure in who you are.
This is because you can’t predict or control what happens to you! This gives us a false identity and causes us to be unstable in who we are called to be.
The only thing in your life that you can have 100% assurance of being unchanging is Jesus and what He says about you.
This quote from the book Uninvited really stood out to me
Find your identity in Him and His fulfilling love for you.
I want this to become so real to you:
You are not what has happened to you.
You are not what others say about you.
You are not identified by your mistakes.
You are treasured
You are valued
Your are loved
and you belong!
The more time you spend with God and allow him to show you who you are, the more you will find who you are!
The world isn’t filled with Gods goodness, you are.
The things of the world won’t show you who you are or identify you unless you allow them to.
You will only find this in who God made you through his goodness.
You are His very own work of art.
