Flamingos turn pink due to diet — Mustard Seed Budget

The image you project to the world as a Christian is a matter of your diet. If you feed constantly on negativity and denigration, you won’t project of confidence, joy and victory. You need to feed on the word, not the sewers of the world’ media. Trivia: Flamingos are born with gray feathers but turn […]

Who am I in Christ?

Who are you in Christ?

You, my dear sweet sister and brother in Christ are fearfully and wonderfully made.  You have been gifted with power, love and a sound mind.  You have been redeemed, set free, moulded into His image, restored and a little touch of Heaven is now to be found in your heart.

And me?

For me, my whole way of defining myself, of thinking about myself, I thought in terms of sickly, anxious, weak, ugly, unworthy…

And I know that I am not the only one.  I know that there are many of my friends, peers, work colleagues who don’t think of themselves as being worthy, or beautiful, or successful, or…

But, that is not what the Bible tells us.

The Bible tells me:
  • That I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  (Psalm 139:14)

  • God did not give me a spirit of fear (anxiety), but of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
  • That He loved me so much, that Jesus died for me to get into Heaven, which means I am not completely worthless.  (John 3:16)

Today was day 2 of my 21 Day Detox and still this thought is that my anxiety stems from not truly knowing who I am in Christ Jesus.  I am His daughter, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God – and God did not create me to have a spirit of fear.

I need to know who I am in Christ before I can move beyond this battle.

And as I proceed through this detox and renew my mind in Christ Jesus, I need to always remember who I am: I am fearfully and wonderfully made, created with love, power and a sound mind.

As are you.

My 21 Day Detox!

Who am I in Christ?

I am fearfully and wonderfully made, with power, love and a sound mind.

I am busy working through Dr Caroline Leaf’s 21 Day Detox programme.  And I have tackled toxic thinking on various issues in my life, but the one I haven’t tackled yet – the big one, the major driving force for most of what I do and who I am – is anxiety.  And in this next lot of 21 day detox I am going to tackle this negative mindset.  Because it’s not just one thought – it’s a mindset.  A negative, anxious-filled outlook on life that creates negative thoughts… that reinforces the mindset.
