Having an Identity Crisis? Find Identity in Christ!
Written by Christi Given | September 16, 2011
Do you ever feel you aren’t good enough? Do you think your friends have cuter clothes than you? That you’re too thin? Too fat? That you just don’t fit in?
It’s a sad fact that when most teenage girls compare themselves to their friends, or see those doctored images of celebrities and models in magazines, they feel as if they don’t measure up. You may feel as if YOU don’t measure up.
Well, that is not true!
You are unique and beautiful the way you are. But don’t just take my word for it. Take God’s.
“You are fearfully and wonderfully made!” – Psalm 139
Wow! You are handmade by God…that is amazing!
Now, although in your heart you know that God’s love envelops you, God’s love maybe doesn’t feel like “enough.” It certainly doesn’t help that we are bombarded every single day with images and songs about teenage romance. No wonder so many of us feel as if we’re somehow “lacking” something if we don’t have a boyfriend! But as a fellow Christian I want to assure you that a boyfriend cannot fulfill you like Christ can! He is the one who should make you whole! 🙂
So if you ever feel sad, or down because you think you’re the only one out of your friends without a boyfriend or a date to the dance, look to the Word of God. Seek God and He will draw near to you (James 4:8) The Holy Spirit will give you peace and you will be reminded by the truth in the Word that you are valued and prized by Almighty God!
