Is worldly pressure trying to rob you of your identity? Sometimes we are under so much stress that we forget completely about ourselves. Maybe you’re too busy. Or perhaps people want to control you. In the end you might lose a sense of who you are.
When this happens, return to the basics. Think about what’s really most important to you. Re-establish 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:

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.”
PRAYER FOR ME TO BE MYSELF
Oh heavenly Lord,
Why am I so unsatisfied? Why is it so hard for me to be me? Yes, I have sinned against you. I know you forgive me. But there’s something else.
I reject myself even though Jesus doesn’t.
So I ask you, oh loving Lord, give me a heart like Christ’s. Help me accept myself for who I am, here, now. Free me from my desire to copy others and please everyone else.
I want to be a better me. Show me what’s really mine. My faults, my virtues. Then mold me, oh Lord, shape me and make me confident as a child of God.
And may it all manifest in acts of kindness, mercy and love. Let my life glorify you, oh Lord, and bring more souls to your heavenly banquet.
By your grace alone,
In Jesus name,

I don’t know why I can’t stand firm with my Christianity. Help me with your prayers, so that I may stand strong despite the circumstances always.
Hi Sisto… Remember, it’s a process. No one is ever 100% firm. You don’t fail all the time either. Focus on building upon God’s victories in your life. Don’t focus on failure. Instead, learn and move forward. You can do it! God bless you.
I will be praying for you!

Thank you for helping me with encouragement to look up to the lord for his stretch out hand of love to know apart from him I can’t do anything. I can’t look to please everyone ,I can only please God by submitting him and his will for my life. Thank you Lord Jesus for understanding.
Amen Thomas! God bless you.
Oh my gosh! That’s me. Why can’t I remember all the good stuff in my life instead of all the mess ups. Praise God for his patience and love.

I feel like i am a failure. Im a failure as a mother, a student, friend and as a Christian
Dear friend… You can’t “fail” at being a Christian. It’s not a test… it’s a gift. Go back to the basics of your faith. Begin again. It is never too late. We never will measure up… that’s exactly why we need Jesus. You, me, everybody! Please don’t think it depends all on you. Instead, go back and re-build your trust in God first. You can do it! He is always there and waiting for you.
I will be praying for you!
