17. The Ultimate Selfie: Getting to the Core, part 2 – FINAL CHAPTER

Hello readers. Thanks for following me and my journey into discovering who you really are. This is the last post in this series, but I plan to continue with the blog on another topic. Stay tuned. God bless you all!

If you’re still confused about who you are, it may be that you don’t know Him who made you. This could be where your identity crisis begins. It is not God’s desire that you don’t know your worth. In fact, He came to earth as Jesus to be a bridge that spans the gulf of disobedience that separates us from our Creator.

The process starts with recognizing Him for who He is, then realizing that you have a need, that you’re not completely in the center of God’s plan. Admit that you’ve done enough sinful things and had enough impure thoughts to separate you from Him.

The next step for you is to admit to these sins and then surrender them to God and ask Him to free you from them. Once you’ve joined His kingdom, He’ll teach you about yourself and how He sees you. The idea of self-worth and identity will become less and less of an issue once you let Him direct your thoughts and actions. It sounds pretty simple, but as I said before, surrender is hard, but it is necessary to be aligned with God and His plan for you.

 Do you know the One who created you–not just know about Him, but have a real connection? Can you talk to Him and know how to listen as He talks to you?

Are you afraid to trust God, whom you cannot see with your eyes?

Psalm 147:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB) says “He heals the brokenhearted. And binds up their wounds.”

Isaiah 40:26 (NASB) “Lift up your eyes on high
And see who has created these stars,
The One who leads forth their host by number,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
Not one of them is missing.” If He can do that, don’t you think He can remember and renew you?

STOP: How do you feel about yourself right now?
Do you see yourself as having no value to the world?

LIE: Because you aren’t perfect in appearance, perfect in performance, or have a checkered past, you aren’t worth anything.
You must find significance in who you are with or what you have done.

TRUTH: Luke 12:6-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“Are not five sparrows sold for two cents? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.”
Isaiah 40: 11 “Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs. And carry them in His bosom…”
