5 Minute Friday...Identity

My computer has been out of commission so I have missed posting for over a week. I thought a nice was to dive back in would be on my favorite day...Five Minute Friday! Five minutes...one word...no editing.

Today's word is IDENTITY...


Most people identify who they are with what they do. Whenever you meet someone for the first time you are likely to ask or be asked, "so what do you do?" We often ask little kids, "what do you want to be when you grow up?"  Most kids will answer with fireman, astronaut, ballerina, model, doctor, lawyer, mommy, etc...

Yes, most of us place our identity in what we do.  This is dangerous, because what we do can be taken away from us quickly. For me today, I am going to focus on one verse to give my identity.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

This verse gives me my identity. I am a child of the King, I am precious in His sight, all that I am is because He gave all that He had for me!!!

  2. Love this! A few years ago, when I was beginning my journey with depression, I sought out a counselor and he asked me who I was. I started with daughter, sister, wife, mom, etc. He replied ... those are your relationships, who are you? Secretary? Nope. AWANA worker? Uh uh. It took me a long time to quit allowing other people and circumstances to define me. I suppose I still struggle with it some. But I did learn to consciously CHOOSE to believe I am who God says I am!
