I am the daughter of an evangelist.
I am the girl who watched lives change in crusades around the country.
I am an alumni of the Rock Youth Ministry where I experienced my greatest teenage memories.
I am the girl who was “kicked out” of Liberty University for having too many reps.
I am not a natural blonde (anymore!)
I am the daughter of a senior pastor
I am a victim of lies and betrayal
I am such a sinner
I am divorced
I am passionate about ministering to hurting people
I am an avid reader
I am acquainted with loss – those who have “left” the church and “left” my life
I am in love with The Word
I am engaged
I am a singer
I am unconditionally loved by a man who had every right to never speak to me again
I am competitive
I am a horrible driver
I am full of wild dreams and ideas
However, more importantly –
I am created in the image and likeness of God
Genesis 1:26 “Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us…”
I am the “kept” by God – the apple of His eye
Deuteronomy 32:10 “…He threw his arms around him, lavished attention on him,
guarding him as the apple of his eye”
I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”
I am crowned with glory and honor
Psalm 8:5-6 “You put us in charge of your handcrafted world”
I am a temple – housing the very presence of God
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?”
I am adopted – a child of God
Romans 8:15 “You received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father…”
I am part of a chosen generation
1 Peter 2:9 “But you…are chosen…God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.”
I am an overcomer
1 John 5:4 “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
And I am forgiven
Psalm 103:12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”
Who Are You?
