Pressure from the world and the wounds of life might try to rob us of our identity. We are under so much pressure that we may even forget completely about ourselves. Maybe we’re too busy. Or perhaps people want to control us. In the end we lose a sense of who we are.
When this happens, return to the basics. Think about what’s really most important to you. Reestablish your core roles. Above all, build upon your identity as a child of God. This means spending time in his presence. So seek him.
Time spent with God allows you to understand and feel his love for you. You begin to realize how much you mean to him. The Lord’s faithfulness gives you confidence to be yourself.
A message and prayer from Vincent:
Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well..
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
