When we face hard times, bad days, and stress, we see the immediate dangers like lost time, and sleep. But the greatest risk can be harder to recognize, losing our identities. Who we are can be covered by our circumstances until challenges we’re facing are all we can focus on when we look in the mirror.
You are not what happens to you.
You are not where you are right now.
You are not your weakest moments or biggest struggles.
Can I lean in and whisper that to you? Oh, friend, I’m praying with all my heart right now as I type these words that you believe it.
You are loved.
You have a purpose.
You are irreplaceable.
You are a overcomer.
You are enough.
This is what’s true of you—no matter what your day holds. Don’t let your circumstances define you. Instead, hold on to who you really are. To what God whispers to you. To the identity He’s given you that’s eternally unchanging.
You are who He says you are.
And you are His– forever.
