Stop putting your identity in people, place and things

Because when we lose one or all of those things then our whole world is gone. All of a sudden you don’t know who you are anymore. 

 

You were never gone! You just put your identity in the wrong things. 

 

Boyfriend broke up with you. You don’t know who you are anymore. 

 

Lost the job. You don’t know who you are anymore. 

 

No longer getting opportunities. Now you don’t know who you are anymore. 

 

Stop putting your identity in people, places and things. It will never fulfill you. 

 

I’m not saying those things are bad, but there’s only one ☝️ who can fulfill that emptiness in your heart. Yeah, that hole that your trying to fill up. 

 

I’m use to be that girl, if I wasn’t in a relationship then I was a nobody. 

 

If I didn’t have nice clothes then I was a nobody. 

 

If I didn’t have my nails done or hair done I was a nobody. 

 

If I didn’t graduate high school or didn’t have my dream job then I was a nobody. 

 

If I wasn’t hanging with the popular people then I was a nobody. 

 

But, if I removed all those things who was I really? 

 

Let me tell you even if you had all those things you will still feel empty inside because we were never meant to feel that emptiness with those things. 

 

We were never meant to chase after things, people and opportunities. 

 

We were never meant to put our identity in those things. You are who God says you are. With or without it! 

 

We were meant to chase after the one who can fill all the emptiness in your heart and love you in ways that you never thought was possible. 

 

Your identity is not in being the best mom, having a man, having opportunities, and the newest trend. 

 

Your identity is in the one who created you. 

 

What have you’ve been putting your identity in lately?
