Re-introduce yourself but now in Christ!
Hello, My name is Katherine Owens and I am a follower of Christ. I strive daily to have a relationship with him and to live my life according to his word. Life gets tough and I am aware of that, but I know that he is bigger than any problem, worry, or stress I may find myself in. I know that he can heal the sick and he can heal me. I know he created me for a reason and I have a purpose on this earth. I serve a GREAT, POWERFUL, and AMAZING GOD. I believe he has a calling over my life to serve him and in some way serve others, and I am no longer allowing my temporary struggles define me and interfere with my walk with him. Releasing the holds! So many times we find ourselves in many situations and forget that our God is bigger than anything. We allow our flesh to take over and we worry, stress, and lose hope for many different reasons. It can be hard, trust me I have been there many many times before. As you continue to grow and mature in Christ you should start becoming a newer person. All those worries and stress you learn to leave at his feet at the altar. You continually remind yourself that there is NOTHING that God can't handle.
We can allow situations to keep us stagnant because God has a special and unique calling over each and every one of our lives. We can't stay stuck in our current problems because those things will start to define us. We have to speak life over ourselves and walk in our purpose that God has called us to walk in. We have to go out in the world and bring people to him but we can't do that if we are still stuck on the things that are not of God. His word says in Philippians 4:6-7 “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” God does not want us to stay in our situations at all.
It’s time to redefine ourselves in him. We don't need our situations creating labels on us. We also can't allow the world to place us anywhere either because they are not our creators. We must diligently seek him, allow him to expose our purpose and walk in it. We are his daughters and he has so much more for us than these temporary situations/problems we allow to seem bigger than his. It’s time walk in freedom and peace. It’s 2017, it's time to be more intentional with our relationship with him because he loves us and wants to build stronger bonds with us. God wants us to learn who we are in him so that when it's time to go out into the world, we can re-introduce ourselves as his children and followers of him.
