True Identity

on March 22, 2015

Good morning to you and Happy Sunday! 

It’s been a minute since I was last here but sometimes that just happens. 

 

I wanted to share with you one of the things that I ready in my quiet time this morning.  The house is quiet and it’s raining.  That’s all that I hear and it’s such a beautiful sound.  I love that it was quiet enough for me to hear the whisper of Jesus.  In those moments I feel closer to Him.  As if we are having a cup of coffee talking about well……Him.

My Identity.

Growing up I was a chunker let me tell ya.  I couldn’t wait to eat.  Anything really, but I found my love in sweets.  Candy, cupcakes, chocolate…..you name it, I ate it.  It’s not something that you really even think about as a kid, you just do it.  You haven’t yet figured out that our bodies react differently to food.  Some it has no affect. Me on the other hand…… I can just think about a good piece of cake with extra icing and my pants get tight.

It is what it is.

Slowly but surely I started to feel like my identity came from being the “fat one”.  Thoughts would consume me of wanting to lose weight and wanting to be like all of the others girls and yet I was only a kid.

As I got older, it only got worse.  I never dated.  I didn’t have a boyfriend in school.  My favorite thing was to go grocery shopping with my mom and then want to eat the things that I had gotten all at once. 

Even now, I struggle with this.  My identity.  Where does it come from? 

And then I hear it.

That whisper.

“You are Mine”

Did you hear it that time?

“You are My daughter”

His Word tells me that I am “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  My identity comes straight from Him and Him alone.  I don’t have to answer to anyone else for that.  Even in the midst of a difficult season or wilderness, I am still His and for whatever purpose it may be difficult for a time.  I am reminded everyday however, He is faithful and He is good and He most definitely loves me.

Because?

I am His.

I hope you have an amazing day!
