How many times have you filled your mind with thoughts that you know, deep down, are not true? Have you ever felt totally unsure of who you are just because you are separated or divorced?
The person you are has nothing to do with the events and situations that happen to you. Bankruptcy, fame, and job loss may happen, but you are still you. It does not change who you are. It may force you to change and adapt, but it should not change your identity.
You are not what happens to you; you are the result of how you react to what happens to you.
As devastating as divorce is, you can move forward and grow through it. How you handle every situation from now on is a choice. Make it a positive choice.
5a “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…” Jeremiah 1:5a NIV
You are a unique, special, one-of-a-kind creation from God.
A divorce, lost opportunity, or a lottery win may change how you have to adapt in life to move forward. It does not change the fact that you are a person that can and will rise above whatever is in front of you.
Know that God doesn’t make junk, and you are a treasure to the One who has created everything.
God, help me to remember that you created me and that you love me for who I am. I am your child and may my identity be wrapped in you today, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
