I have always wanted this to be more than a craft blog. I want this to be the place my readers run to for inspiration, a pick-me-up, and a good dose of confidence that you can accomplish anything. So, today's post is about what God has been teaching me.
1 Peter 1:18-19 tells us that we were purchased by the precious blood of God's son and that made us heirs with Christ to the kingdom of heaven, adopted into God's family.
I have been sick for a year, and I don't have a firm diagnosis. My illness has changed my entire life. Everything revolves around it. Over the last year, the person who I thought I was-smart, successful, energetic-has been stripped away and I have been left with what I thought was a shell of who I was and wanted to be.
The truth is that my identity is not based on my physical existence, but in my relationship with Christ. I am an heir with him to the the kingdom of God. I have been bought with royal blood and given access to the power of God.
No matter how weak I feel or how much my body lets me down, I am still a child of God--strong, beautiful, and confident.
Thank you, Jesus!
