I speak and write about the true definition of who we are. It is only found in knowing the One who made you. We all watched this week the unveiling of Caitlyn Jenner, Bruce Jenner’s new identity and new gender. We can change the body all we want, but it will never change who we really are – a precious, valuable, intentional person created by God – and we are all broken and in need of God’s healing. Bruce Jenner is just like us. If we seek to find our identity, value, and purpose in anything other than God, we end up empty. In choosing Jesus we come to find freedom in being who He created us to be. As we allow Him to empty us of all the world put inside, we become filled with Him, set free to display to the world the Love of the Father.
When the enemy of your soul comes around to tell who you are not, tell him who you are. When memories of past experiences rise up to tell you that you are what you have done, tell them to quiet down, that you are a fully embraced child of God.
The quality of our relationship with Him determines the quality of everything else in our life. It’s essential that we learn, repeat, and rehearse the truth of who we are until it is sown deep into the core of your beliefs. Then and only then do we walk in freedom. Beth Moore wrote that it is in binding ourselves to Christ that we become truly free. She was right.
Loads of Grace,
From the desk by the window and the clouds are heavy with rain.
