Identity in Jesus

headerlongTAGlineWHO ARE YOU…really?  No, really? With a make-up-less face, in lounge pants, with bad breath?

WHO ARE YOU in those angry and impatient moments, when you fail to meet someone’s expectations, when you back up into a car in your church’s parking lot?

WHO ARE YOU…when your house is a mess, your kids are a mess, your hair is a mess?

True, the question is a bit cliche. Nonetheless, the answer to this fundamental inquiry can change your life.  It is oh-so-easy to live under a mistaken identity- not fully and truly defined by who God says you are.

For the next 31 days, we will meander through the pages of the Bible, uncover our true identify, and open up the doorway to freedom and your full potential.

We will investigate the mistaken identities assumed by people in the Bible.

We will gather evidence of who we really are in Jesus.

My hope for me and for you is to shed the mustache of mistaken identity and assume our rightful place as beloved and adored and made with a purpose.

  4. Is there a way to subscribe so your blog just shows up for me- I’m so tech challenged that I’m not sure I could find my way back to read more of your de-liss-ous-ness!

    1. Hi Jenny! This has been a massive learning curve for me too. On the right side of the post you will see a “subscribe” box. I think all you do is put your email address in there and submit. It should then send you an email when a post is added. Let me know if it doesn’t work. Thrilled to link arms with you on this journey.

  5. Thrilled to see the truth God has in your Heart come to life in written form. I know I will be blessed by your words. Somedays you will post through laughter, & other days through tears, but it will all be the woven threads God has walked you through and that you are living! Love you Amy

  6. Amy, love journeying with you. May Jesus lead you every step of the way and continuously inspire your writing.

    1. Connie- i attribute it to my novice ways…so sorry. i’m working on the issue and will get my subscription button working in a jiffy! excited that you will walk along with me : )

    2. Connie, I think I got it working. I’ll plug in your email and let me know if you get a confirmation link! Thx!
