The verse above so beautifully captures our theme for this month: Identity in Christ. And it also captures the mission of this blog, "encouraging young women to find rest in God". When I saw this verse the other day, i was reminded of the importance of finding rest in God each and every day.
The world tells us that that we should find our identity in things and the people around us. It tells that we should strive to find our worth in peoples opinions. But sisters, those are all lies.
As we as christian women strive to find that rest in God it is important that we remember that when we rest in the shelter of his arms it a "safe place" and that is where we find our identity in him. The song, "Oceans" by Hillsong united has resonated in my heart this week, The words--"Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger. In the presence of my Savior" These words encouraged me to take my faith deeper than I think it could ever wander.
Be encouraged by these words for a moment: "So I will call upon Your name. And keep my eyes above the waves. When oceans rise. My soul will rest in Your embrace. For I am Yours and You are mine."
Sisters, remember to find that rest in him. And as the song says, "my soul will rest in your embrace. For i am yours and you are mine. rest in the truth of these words this week.
