How you define yourself and where you put your identity reveals so much of the kind of life you are living. Are you placing your worth in God, or do you allow your failures or circumstances to define who you are?
“Who am I? What shapes my identity? Whose are we?” These are just some of the questions that many people find hard to answer.
Who You Are In God
In GOD TV’s ‘Let’s Get Real,’ Sue Eldrigdge, Molly, Chris, and Cherlene Wilson discuss powerful revelation about God’s Father heart. They each shared their testimonies in their journey towards discovering their identity, not defined by how the world deems them.
For Cherlene, the truth that “you’re completely lovable and worthy of pursuit,” was such a foreign concept because she grew up in an environment where you have to perform to be loved.
“It was very performance driven. And just knowing about myself seemed to be very very difficult and that’s where all of the behavior about being the promiscuous girl,” she explained. “Because I was looking for love. I was looking for my identity in the wrong places.”
Cherlene’s past tainted her identity, that she even found it hard to believe that she was beautiful. What’s more, was that she would walk around putting on a fake front and even felt shame eating at her. Because of that, she describes her journey as “becoming more authentic.”
“I feel like when you look at yourself in the mirror and you say ‘okay, this is who I am’ and you accept that, you start to evolve. And you start to grow and your identity begins to form,” she further added. “And you realize ‘actually , I’m a child of God. I don’t have to do anything for anyone. It’s simple I just can be myself.'”
