Scripture - Psalm 103:1-4 [MEV]
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases. who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Understanding who I am in Christ has been a journey. When I made a commitment to follow Jesus I knew I needed to change the way I saw myself. What I didn’t realize was how much I needed to change. I quickly came to the conclusion that most of what I had come to believe about my identity was false. Major disappointments in my life left me broken and confused. There were gaping wounds in my heart that needed to be healed. The longer they went untreated the worst I felt about myself.
Discovering how much God loves me has revived my soul. Being forgiven by his grace has empowered me to forgive others. It has freed me up to experience a life that I didn’t think was possible for someone like me. Getting a hold of God’s word has been a life-changing experience in every way. Everytime I opened my Bible I get a fresh perspective on who God is and who I am in Him.
