Hello to the World!
Just got back from the most amazing Campfour ever! With our theme FRESH we had the best camp ever down in Croatia! God was moving and changing young people's lives.
I was refreshed and reminded at why I do love working with youth and how much I love those people!!!
But I also don't want to forget about my topic The Exciting Times of Waiting! Today I want to talk a little about Discovering Your Identity. First of all let us remember the verse which goes with this topic.
"But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint."
In order to find out who you are, what your identity is, you first need to find out who your God ist, how He is like. After that you can find out who you are in Him.
This is why you can use your Waiting time, where you learn more about your God, to also find out who you are in Him, because this will help you discovering His plan and will for you life and hence discovering your identity.
Let's remember David's story. He was called to be the King of Israel years and years before He was chosen. During that time He had to find out who He was in His God. Remember the story of David and Goliath. He could never have gained victory over the giant if it had not been for God. David knew he could trust His God. He knew who he was in Him. That is why he was victorious.
And so you also will find your identity in Jesus Christ when you follow Him.
Here are some reminders who you are. Most of them you can read in Psalm 139!
You are ACCEPTED
You are LOVED
You are WANTED
You are APPRECIATED
You are PROTECTED
You are KNOWN
Remember that God gave everything so you may know that. You are a NEW PERSON a NEW IDENTIY in Him.
That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and I pray that you would be encouraged by this blog.
I love each and everyone of you. God has a mighty plan for YOUR Life. Don't forget: The Waiting times are the exciting times!
