Your Life: The Real Deal
“If I was just a bit slimmer”…”if I was just a bit fatter (surprisingly!)”…”If I was just on a higher paying job”… “if I was moving with the right click of people” The list is endless. Women are under more pressure in our day than ever before.
It is really amazing how the women of our day have tied self worth, real joy and living a blissful life to things that they acquire and require.
The woman of today has developed mindsets that have been tailored from sources such as the media, Hollywood and amazingly the family. There always seems to be more to make women happy.
The real deal is not so and that is an ABSOLUTE! We have to realise that Happiness in itself is a by-product of real JOY.
As women of God, the first thing required is to be able to realise the difference between the truths and the facts about our identity.
The first major truth is that our identity is not fashioned by any of the factors surrounding our everyday lives i.e. what we weigh, what we earn, who we move with and the likes. Our identity is in CHRIST. It is the very basis to living a fulfilled and fruitful life. As clearly indicated in the following scriptures it is clearly seen that we are whole and work in progress in the Hands of our father who loves us unconditionally.
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. Ephesians 2
And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead--Father, Son and Holy Spirit--and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. Colossians 2
