Identity Crisis–Do You Know Who You Are? S2E10

Quite often, people make the mistake of placing their identity in the wrong things. Now let’s look at some examples. First, there are those who find identity in the number of likes they get on social media. If the response is not what they expected, they take it as rejection. Second, let’s say an award-winning singer can no longer sing. Said singer then goes into a severe depression. Why? Because his identity was only in his voice.

And what about the pro football player who gets injured who can never play again. He then turns to alcohol because, for him, football was his life. Last, what about a multi-millionaire who loses all his money. He later commits suicide. Again why? Because he could not live without the power and authority that his money once afforded him.

Marvelously Made—S2-DE10

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. 

I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking.  

It simply amazes me to think about it! 

How thoroughly you know me, Lord! 

You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place, carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.  

You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in your book. 

Psalm 139:13-16 The Passion Translation 

Devotional 

When we look in the mirror, sometimes we can be our biggest critic.  We see things we want to change about ourselves, and yet God sees HIS masterpiece.  We were MARVELOUSLY MADE! 

As God sculpted us in secret, a mysterious work of art was unfolding. Every moment was crafted to be a step closer to the appointed time that HIS latest work of art was to be revealed.

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say – S2E9

In our episode Watch What You are Saying, Lady V and I discussed how important words are. So, several questions come to mind. Such as, when going about your day do you ever consider your words, whether in thought or spoken form? Do you always think before you speak? Can others trust what you say is truthful? Do you honor your word? Moreover, do you say what you mean and mean what you say?

So, let’s look at what the Holy Bible says about it. Now, Proverbs 16:23 Good News Translation says, “Intelligent people think before they speak; what they say is then more persuasive.” Also, Ecclesiastes 5:5 Good News Translation says, “Better not to promise at all than to make a promise and not keep it.” 

As we can see, scripture even attests to how important it is to say what you mean and mean what you say.

Can people trust what you say? Do you say words that connect you with having integrity?

Believe it or not; our words speak to our character. And, whenever we open our mouths it will say something about us.  

The words that we speak can be a lot like a ‘social media’ post gone viral; it can spark a whirlwind of conversation. Thus, it is important that we communicate words with integrity.
