We learn who we truly are in the context of who God is.
I have learned who Kristin is because I have learned who God is and what He has said about me.
God has said that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
He has said that I am to love God and love others. And He said that in a specific order. God first, others second. How can I love others if I have not the love of God in me?
I encourage you to learn who God is and in turn learn who you truly are.
Read His Word and Read what He says about you. In that you come to learn who God is. You learn that He is loving and patient. He is gracious and merciful. He is a faithful and selfless Father. Who sent His selfless and faithful Son to die for our sins.
And when you understand that, truly accept it, live your life based on that.
Then you understand your worth and how valuable and loved you are.
The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”
(Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV)
