You look at these confessions and you make think don’t some of these basically say or mean the same thing? You may look at this and say “man, what has she gone through to make her have to affirm herself daily of these things?” Well, truth be told is I went through my childhood, and adolescents year, teenage years, even up to my early young adult years not feeling good enough.
There were days and nights I would just be miserable because I simply did not know who Miosha was. But the minute I understood my identity in Christ, I made a vow to myself and to God to never let anyone take who God says I am away from me. So every day I remind myself of these things. I even set alarms in my phone throughout the day to send me an alert to say “Hey girl, you’re killin’ it!” All it takes is one decision to never turn back and to keep pushing forward no matter what the world has to say. Just remember, you are chosen. You are loved, and God is still good.
(You can read more of Miosha’s testimony here.)
My advice for anyone struggling with their identity, or who they are is to really get into your word. The bible speaks all over about who God calls you to be, and who you can be. Surround yourself with people that want to bring God’s best out of you. Last but not least grow an maintain an intimate relationship with Him. That’s all He desires.
Lord, I pray that you draw every brother and sister reading this near to your heart. Allow them to see themselves as you see them. Show them things that lie within their being that is not like YOU. Strip them of their old ways and make them new. Allow their identity in you to never be altered. Show them the path of hope that lies ahead on this journey with You. I pray that whatever healing needs to take place within the hearts of the hurting is able to come to fruition. Remind your sons and daughters of who they are and Whose they are Father. Amen.
