The Foundational Building Block is Found!
We see people looking for who they are all the time. As Christians, we know our identity is found in our Maker. Ultimately, we are sons and daughters of God.
People search for their identity when they don’t have a relationship with Jesus. They are searching and trying to find it, yet it is like grasping in the wind.
Sometimes, it feels as though “it” has been caught but with only a glimpse of this disillusioned idea of what is true about ourselves.
When we build our idea off of who we think we are, instead of the real truth of whose we are, we build our lives on shaky ground.
I married and became a young mother at 19. I went from being a child myself to being a mother. Before being a daughter of God, I identified with being a wife and mother.
Whenever something about being a wife or mother didn’t go well, all aspects of my life seemed shaky. I couldn’t make sense of what I was doing with my life.
I was disillusioned into thinking that if anything was “wrong” with my role as a wife and mother, everything in my life was shaky!
Here is what I had come to realize.
Our life is built on building blocks. The foundational block of our entire life is YOU and GOD.
If you try to build your foundational block off of being a wife, mother, or career woman, that foundation is very shaky.
The world teaches us how to be considered successful by basing our lives on these titles.
The world teaches us our identity is found in them. This is disillusionment. It is disillusioned to think this is what our foundation is based on.
The truth is this: The solid foundation is YOU and GOD.
And nothing else. Everything else is built from this.
This is the solid foundation we can rest on.
I’d love you to listen to my episode with Haley Scully as we discuss our identity in Christ. We talk about how everything changes when we live our lives based on the truth of our identity. Join us HERE!
