Devotional Monday: Found in Him




Merriam Webster dictionary defines identity as: the qualities, beliefs, etc., that make a particular person or group different from others.

We are all in seasons of life, and while we are in those seasons we often define ourselves by them. Especially those of us who are in a season of singleness, the world says that we should not be ashamed of our singleness, but, we should see this time in our lives as a gift. As a time to grow in our relationship with God, and to keep on putting him first. Psalm 139:14 is a great reminder that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in him and that our identity should be found in him and not the world.

But the truth is sisters, that no matter what season of life God has us in, we are still fearfully and wonderfully made in him. No matter the season we are in, we are there for a purpose. And while we are in that season, we should find joy in it even if it's hard.

For me, my current season of singleness has been hard at times, and yes, sometimes I get emotional about it. But then I remember that he has me here for a reason, that while I am in this season, I will find joy in being able to share my life with others and encouraging others in their season of singleness, thus this blog. Rest in the truth that psalm 139:14 tells us. Rest in the truth, that no matter the season you are in, God is right there with you, and he meets you right where you are at.
