During her presentation, she talked about identities – the way we see ourselves - and expressed how her own identity is changing and shifting after her recent decision to divorce.
As Glennon talked through this, she said she came to the realization one day that she had to accept her most real and truest identity. She boldly and proudly proclaimed up on that stage that the One identity she can always base her foundation on is that of being a Child of God.
Unchanging. Firm. Assured.
Being a Child of God means we are beloved, holy, and dearly loved. We are forgiven. We are blessed. We are loved. Our identity belongs FIRST to Him and then second to all that remains. Nothing else matters aside from who HE believes we are. Will it matter what brand of clothes we wore, what kind of car we drove, or what the number on the scale says when all is said and done? Not in the least. Will our successes be based upon the number of “likes” we received on Facebook or whether we were invited to every single party?
So maybe the question shouldn’t be, “Who Am I?”, but rather, “How can I start living TODAY as a child of God...my One, true, identity?”
...How will you?
