My mantra for months…

Years ago I was fighting endless lies in reference to my identity… in relationships, my role and honestly my overall existence.  During that period, I wrote this every day in my journal or on my wrist.  “I am God’s daughter, He created me for a reason.  Who the hell cares what anyone else thinks.”  Sorry mom for the strong language,  but I needed the reminder to be bold and strong because the lies were so loud and true in my mind.  I needed the reminder that I AM God’s daughter, he really did create me for a reason and that my view of myself needed to come from Him and Him alone.

Eventually I believed it and no longer needed to write it down.

I will admit, from time to time I get sucked back in.  Back into what someone else thinks, back into an identity that isn’t rooted in Christ, and back into wondering why I’m here.  But those days are few and far between and when they come, I simply go back to this phrase written in my journal.

 1 John 3:1 “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”

Galatians 1:10 “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

    1. Josey, thanks so much for this comment and encouragement. I just realized I never replied. I really do appreciate what you’ve said here that God is using our son. That’s was my only prayer for him, that God would use him. I will admit I never thought it would be like this, but I am so glad he still is. Love to you both!
