Finding My Identity in Christ

February 19, 2008

Ever since I have quit working to stay home, I have struggled greatly with what my identity is. In that time, God has bombarded me with so many different things and each message or situation He has brought into my life has really changed me and shaped me more and more. Being at home and having so much time to be alone, without other adults, I have really felt His presence and heard God’s voice more than in any other time in my life. It is as if I have finally had that chance to really be still and listen for that still quiet voice. This time has been such a blessing and also such a challenge. When the walls are closing in around you, it is hard to figure out what to focus on and easy to drown out God’s whisper with t.v. or books or even kids.

This past week and this weekend I really felt God bombarding me with so much. But what He has taught me about myself and my identity in Him has been life changing. One of the things that really spoke to me this week was this post on Remodeling This Life. It was one of many little things that happened that was so timely for what was going on in my life.  It has reminded me that no matter what happens in my life, no matter how I feel or what others say or feel, that doesn’t change who I am and who I desire to become in Christ. My identity  lies at the feet of Christ and it is in Him that I find strength, discernment, compassion, forgiveness and grace.
