Who Am I?

We fall victim to societal pressure to believe that our apperance, status and possessions will make our lives better. When we give into this notion, we are letting society construct our identity. The real question we need to ask ourselves is where does our identity come from?

Another way to put this is: What types of things define a person? Say, for example, you were to introduce yourself to someone you do not know: How would you define yourself? Would you define yourself by your family relationships, by a professional title, or lack of one, or by where you live or go to church? People generally define theirselves by age, intelligence, education, marital status, material things, and family…

This is a portion of an article that I have featured on Encouragement Café today. This article lines up perfectly with the series this month on our true identity in Christ. I would love for you to read and then come back and share your thoughts in the comment section.

  1. As a child I was teased a lot for not having family like most kids had, I was in the system, the clothes that was picked didnt help my situtation much either. With all the negative things that was said to me I ignored the kids and started reading the bible. At the age of 14 I was so lost till God sent a teacher my way. He asked me to come to his church. I did not realizing what I was stepping into. The Pastor came up to me and bend over and said, “God wants me to tell you that your the most beautiful child inside out” I started to cry cause I felt it was true, even thought I thought I wasnt. He went on saying ignore the kids, rise above and lean of the Lord for comfort. Im 35 now and I still remember that was said cause it was a start of a new beginning.

  2. Jamy, The Lord is great in His ability to put the words I need in your hands. Going through a weird time at work, not sure of my place and fitting in. I needed that reminder of God’s unconditional love and acceptance of me as well as the fact that He has a purpose and a plan for me. Bless you and thank you.
