For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
We have many things in our lives that vie to shape our identity.
We might want to seek our identity in our physical appearance.
We might want to find it in being a good woman, an amazing mother or being a great wife.
We might peg it on our ministries, or in a Christian activity.
We might run wild trying to find our identity in things, stuff, material gain.
These are faulty foundations, akin to building a house on sand.
We need to pray and deliberately decide to find our identity solely in Christ.
Then on that foundation, an unshakable foundation, we can define all our other roles and passions.
We can build our marriages, we can be good mentors to our children will we can be passionate wives and lovers to our husbands, in Christ, we can be whole.
