Who Do You Think You Are?

We are often so bogged down with everyday life that we often forget who we are. More importantly we often forget Who's we are. I recently discovered exactly who I am. When my eyes were opened it was like turning on the lights in a dim room. I could see in the room, but suddenly more clearly when the lights came on.  Isn't that how God works though, suddenly?

I am the daughter of the Most High God! I am an heir, royalty. I am a princess to the King of Kings, joint heir with the Prince of Peace. Now, before you start to wonder about me know this; so are you. Have you any idea who you are?

... for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. ~1 Peter 2:9, NLT

Maybe you've been told by others what they think you are. And maybe those names weren't very kind. Maybe those names and those words hurt you to the core. I understand that. I've heard them too by many different people. And I once believed them. But I don't anymore, no sirree. I don't believe them anymore because it was revealed to me exactly who I am and what my purpose is.

You see, although I suffered in depression and intimidation for over forty years, God healed me of all that. But it took nearly three years after the healing for me to actually realize who I am in Christ. Oh lovelies, don't think that I had it all together when I got healed. I had a lot together, but not all of it. I still don't and I won't have until I finish my race on earth. None of us will. But I'm on a good start.

I've also written a book about my healing journey in my new book, Walking Healed.* It's a journey that has taken me on an adventure to discovering who I am in Christ. A journey of forgiveness, grace and hope. And it's a journey that you can come along with me. Find out how you can be healed and discover who you are in Christ.

God wants you to know how crazy He is for you. He wants you to know that He loves you and wants to heal you, prosper you, and that He has a purpose for you. Let me tell you, once you discover who you are in Him you'll discover your purpose. You may already know what it is, or maybe you think you do but it isn't clear. It will be very soon. 

Discovering who you are in Christ is a liberating adventure. You have confidence. You are calm. You are joyful, happy, loving. You have more self-esteem. You even carry yourself differently. You smile more. People notice. I love knowing who I am in Him. It's been a fun adventure and it's not over yet. How about joining me?
