Who we are in Christ!

Last weekend I had the awesome privilege of speaking about losing our negative labels by choosing joy while at a women’s conference. We laughed, we cried and we talked about the truth that only God has the authority to write our identity. While I spoke from the stage to the whole group, it was during the breakout session that something pretty amazing happened. I still get goosebumps on my arms just thinking about it!

So what happened? Well, we each had a copy of the list below, and we took turns reading the positive names God calls His children in the Bible. One by one we spoke the names, and one by one, each face began to be covered in peace and joy. How I wish we had been able to capture it in a video!

Since I was so moved, I decided to share this list with all of you. Do yourself a favor and take the time to read this out loud. Read. Believe. Be blessed.
