Be Who God Created You to Be

Be Who God Created You to Be

I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. Psalm 139:14 NCV

Researcher Marcus Buckingham did a study with thousands of women to find out what made them thrive. To his surprise, he discovered the number one influence on a woman’s well-being is how much time she spends in her “sweet spot.” In other words, how closely she stays connected to who God truly made her to be.

In my work as a counselor, life coach, author, and speaker, I’ve found the same to be true. Being disconnected from who you really are leads to depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and a host of other troubles. Sometimes it can even be fatal.

And contrary to popular belief, women who understand and are secure in their true identities are less selfish, not more. Being free from insecurity allows us to serve and offer the world what only we can. We are closest to and most like Jesus when we are fully being who He created us to be.

You can embrace who you are and become all God created you to be. You’re a warrior and overcomer. You have more strength than it may seem like right now. And you serve a God bigger than you can see.

It’s time to stop being so tired.

It’s time to discover our true identities.

It’s time for us to really believe we’re already amazing.
