So now I'm back. I took the challenge a couple of years ago, but had to bail out because life was just too crazy and something had to take a back seat. I'm excited for this year's challenge because I literally just got the "what" of what I wanted to write about. I was going to write a 31 Days of Essential Oils, but decided that even though EOs are a part of my life, I need to get a grasp of who I am in Christ. You can still click here for info on EOs. I'd love for you to take a leap into them because having the alternative to chemicals and toxins is something that you won't regret for your family. I haven't and I won't look back. Please feel free to email me with any questions. I'd be more than happy to help you on your oily journey.
What Is My True Identity?
Am I enough? Those words resonate deep in my heart because growing up, I never felt as if I were enough. Through counseling, tears, and lots and lots of hugs, I know I am. But sometimes, it doesn't feel like it. My man does such a wonderful job to make sure he lets me know how appreciated I am. And that's such a blessing. As moms those words can dictate how we will act and what we will do with our day. We can be frustrated, annoyed, exhausted, and just plain fed up. But if we were to take a moment, breathe, and listen, we just might hear other words.
"YOU ARE ENOUGH."
Those are the words our Father wants us to hear and to believe, every moment of every day. You are enough. Have your to-do list and nothing is getting checked off because you decided to make memories with your kids? You are enough. Cleaned a room to find it destroyed again because your kids thought it would be awesome to dump out everything to find that one special thing? You are enough. Late to MOPs because someone had to have their diaper changed and then spit up all of their clothes AND yours? You are enough. Ladies, we need to listen for those words that our Father whispers to us to fill our hearts. But most of all, He wants us to believe those words.
In Romans 15: 7, it says,
Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.
So as I go through these next 31 days with you, I pray that God will help me find my true identity in Him. I pray that I will understand that I am FULLY ACCEPTED by God.
