my identity

Earlier this week, I was given a writing challenge to write out a list of statements about my identity in Christ and how God sees me. Note: This is not how the world sees me, how my friends see me or even how I see myself, although the way I view myself is slowly being transformed. Here goes.

I am a daughter of the Most High God. John 1.12; Romans 8.2, 16.17; Colossians 2.10

  • Means the world to him. John 3.16
  • Holy and beloved. Ephesians 1.14, 11; Colossians 3.12; 1 Thessalonians 1.4; Song of Songs 6.4, 7.10
