Identity is everything

Who you think and believe yourself to be will impact everything you do in life for the good or not so good. While in the lifestyle I identified myself as a lesbian and every thought in my life was associated with this truth I believed about myself.

When I gave my life to Jesus, He began to let me know just who I was now that I am His. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 it says; "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come."

This is critical to your success in making the change from your past life to your new life in Christ. As time moved forward for me and I began to learn more about who I now am in Christ I found a place to settle down in that is dear to me and speaks to my heart.

I am a daughter of the King a daughter of the Most High God. This is who I am and will continue to be and become more with each passing day.

There are many scriptures that help us to know just who we are in Christ. I've pulled a few together for you. Jesus will speak to you and help you to grow in Him so that you to will find the fullness of your identity in Him.
