The struggle is real… How many times have you found yourself saying that lately? We’ve been through a lot, especially in the last year. So, what do we do when difficult things happen, when life’s struggles don’t seem to line up with our belief in God? We tend to rush past it and never deal with the emotional impact, but the reality is we won’t get very far if we don’t stop, feel the hurt and allow ourselves to get honest with Him. We’re human, and even Jesus felt pain while on earth. God is the only one who can heal our hearts, and He wants us to come to Him. It’s time to take off the church face and invite Him into our story so we can live the full and authentic lives He created us to live!
Who, or what, defines you? Many of us have allowed things like possessions, accomplishments, family, and sex to determine our value. But we were created to live from a place of identity and significance rather than spending our whole lives searching for it. God the Father designed and chose you—yes, you—to be here, and He’s the only one who gets to define you. What does He have to say? You were made on purpose for a purpose, and your presence matters. You are wanted and loved!
