Two great quotes from a book I'm currently reading:
"We were created for significance. Within the DNA of every person is the God-given desire to make a difference.
In Christ, we are adopted and we discover our true significance. It's not something we manufacture for ourselves or derive from others but discover through our relationship with our Father."
That's why my quote on mySpace says, "Who are you, really?" Where does your identity lie? Is your self esteem and self worth derived from how you see yourself, how others see you or who God alone says that you are? Outside of God's view, any other opinion of yourself is a lie. Rest in who He has called you to be because there lies purpose, joy, your true identity. All else that we do is as a fleeting moment when set next to His eternal plan for our lives.
This weekend I read Psalm 103:14 that says, "For He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust." Don't be fooled into thinking that God is in constant disappointment with you. Hold your head up, stand tall and walk boldly in the knowledge that you are a child of the living God. It's time for His "church" to start acting like she knows her identity.
Don't know what all of this means? Drop me an email at desh412[at]yahoo[dot]com for some harmless discussion.
