As a kid, the last thing you want to hear is, “You’re a copy cat!”
We all want to think we are one of a kind, an original! I have often wondered where in the world that phrase even came from anyway. I mean, have you ever known a cat who copied?! Have you even known of a finicky feline who cared enough about another human or animal to even notice them, much less, imitate them?! Cats are the most independent, “don’t tell me what to do,” “I don’t need you,” “leave me alone please,” creatures I know!
Do you worry about what people think about you? Do you often change clothes several times before you leave the house because you just aren’t sure you look good?
Do you end your day with a mental review of everything you said, wish you’d said, or regret that you said? Do you try really hard to make the right impression to all the right people?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, well, welcome to the human race! Actually, if you answered yes to even one of those questions chances are you need to tend to your identity.
I’ve got ten truths to help you do just that.
But first, what do I mean by tending to your identity and is it okay to do so?
Isn’t it amazing how God uses stress to make Himself more real to us?
Saturday morning, I had a choice. Tucked away in my nice, warm bed, a sudden bolt of terror hit me like lightening, and I had to choose: Stress or confess?
Because it happened. On the second morning of our last and biggest Fresh Grounded Faith event of our whole year, my alarm clock decided to take a day off.
You can imagine the morning that followed.
