A Psalm of Identity, Who are we?
What is a name but a moniker,
Regardless of its few or many letters?
Does it reverence who we are,
What we have done,
Or what we have yet still to accomplish?
Has God our Father deemed us to be limited in any respect?
Does He care more about what we are called,
Or who we are called to be?
In all His glory and indescribable nature,
Our Lord has made us in His image- leaving nothing out.
He leaves healing, mercy, goodness and kindness in our wake.
We must begin to see ourselves past our skin,
That old thick and tainted sin!
Who desires for wholeness?
Who has been set free?
The man or woman who gives to God,

The Word for Today:
In the Bible it says:
“Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.” Acts 5:15-16
“Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Psalm 23:6
Not many people take the time to think about their “wake” and what they leave behind themselves. The Bible shows us that Peter was so filled with power and who he was in Christ that his very shadow healed the sick! In psalms we read that goodness and lovingkindness follow us everywhere we go! The word for today is a word of encouragement, encouraging you to not be so busy moving ahead that you bulldoze your way through life, leaving chaos and stresses behind you everywhere you go!
A person who is confused about who they are, continuously picks at and wears on others, leaving insecurity behind them everywhere they go, but the CONFIDENT and holy man and woman of God know who they are- and the whole world is affected by their each and every decision in a positive way! Jesus says : “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
Who are we, really? We are followers of Christ in all His actions and as we follow Him forward we leave Him behind us everywhere we go!
God bless you my friends as you seek out the new and whole identity of the follower of Christ!
If you are in need of prayer, you can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We agree with you the the Lord has His will, purpose and plan for your life! If you have never completely surrendered or asked Jesus to be you Lord and savior, invite Him in today- you will never be the same! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Cor 5:17
