The Lord stripped away a lot of the identity that I didn’t realize was keeping me from stepping into His identity for me. I truly realized that my time with Crossroads (where I had spent 6 years on summer staff and a year as a CDH intern), and college (a season that I loved and felt like God was using me in) had come to an end. In both of those places, I had influence. I had a platform and I had favor. And I had people. And yet, in the span of two years, I saw both of those chapters come to a close. And it rocked me.
Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things not consider the things of old. Behold I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it.”
As women we tend to let our thoughts dictate our feelings and before long those feelings lead us into this false perception of reality. Fake or not, in that moment, it’s completely real and we respond accordingly. We keep our thoughts locked in on what should have, could have happened and then we get stuck there. We can’t see past what is surrounding us. I want us to look beyond our circumstances and begin to see what’s going on.
