Happy and blessed Monday!

By now, you may be familiar with Becky, So Blessed amazing journey.  She is one of my favorites.

Unfortunately, because of space, I had to edit out her commentary on each scripture and they were beautiful.  If you are interested, I encourage you to got to https://soveryblessed.com/bible-verses-identity/ for the complete text.

SO many of us who have struggled with our weight, have also struggled with self esteem issues.  This is also the case, too often, even without weight struggles. Becky addresses this with honesty and openness.

May you be blessed too.

Pray Unceasingly!!


Becky, So Very Blessed

I don’t know about you, but I often let all kinds of things tell me who I am.

I let a rejection from a job application tell me I’m not good enough.

I let the number on the bathroom scale tell me I’m not worthy of being loved.

I let a mistake or a rude comment from a stranger tell me I’m a failure.

I unintentionally let all kinds of random things in life define who I am…

But do those things line up with what God has to say about you?

It’s a choice to root your identity in Christ alone and that is my deepest desire for you – to know Jesus and to know who you are in Him.

27 Bible Verses On Identity

If you’re struggling with low self-confidence, read these Bible Verses on identity to be reminded of the Truth of who God says you are.

This topic is so near and dear to my heart because I struggled for so many years to know who I was and, because of that, I was relying on other people to define my worth.

Unfortunately, that led me to have terribly low self-esteem. I ran to food for comfort and ended up 100 pounds overweight, which then led to bullying, which destroyed my self-confidence even more.

Even after I accepted Jesus as my savior when I was 15, I measured my worth by the opinions of the people around me. I tried my hardest to fit in and please people the best I could.

Then I ended up in an emotionally abusive marriage for 6 years, which left me feeling like an empty shell of a person. It felt like I’d hit rock bottom and I had nothing left, which is a beautiful place for God to bring beauty from our ashes.

So, I started from scratch, building my identity on a new foundation – Christ. Instead of only relying on others to define me, I started digging into God’s Word, desperate to believe that what He had to say about me was true, even when I didn’t feel like it.

And, slowly, I grew stronger. More confident. More worthy.

I felt less frantic, more peaceful, and more steady.

My foundation was strong and my identity was built on Christ alone. Not my works. Not my efforts. Not anyone else’s opinion of me. Just Jesus.

That is my hope for you, as well.
