"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." - Ephesians 1:3-5

I’m his wife.
“Mom” is who I am to three
I am daughter; granddaughter;
sister; cousin; and niece.
To one, I am "friend".
And to another, I am "neighbor".
For a moment, I had to ponder I am still called "granddaughter" by anyone. I only have one grandparent living.
If I move I’m not their "neighbor" anymore.
And I can't control that she decided I’m no longer
My identity feels like it can change at any
moment. Sometimes, that is hard for me to cope
However, there is one identity I
cling to that is unchanging: I am a child of God. If there is one thing I can
teach my daughters, it is this: Your identity should be found in God alone. In
this world where life moves faster than a spinning top, I am so grateful that
my identity in God NEVER changes.
Maybe today you need to
cling to that too.
“How great is the love the
Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that
is what we are!” – 1 John 3:1 I'm linking up today with Jill Savage for the Hearts at Home Blog Hop, "Third Thursday Thoughts". Check out what other moms are saying on the topic, "Love your Personality," at Jill's blog.
