In her single, Who I Am, former Group 1 Crew member, Blanca, sings about the many doubts that often plague so many of us. Doubts that keep us from soaring and hold us back from being all that God created us to be.
Are we strong? Are we beautiful? Are we good enough?
After all the wrong things we’ve said and done, do we still belong?
Even when we feel like we don’t measure up, are we loved?
It does not matter what other people say the answers to these questions are. It doesn’t even matter what we think they are. All that matters is what God has already said.
Turn down the negativity and tune out the painful words.
We are strong because our hope is in the Lord (Isaiah 40:31). We are beautiful because we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). We are good enough because God has made us accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 1:6)
We belong, no matter what we’ve done, because we are sons and daughters in God’s heavenly family (2 Corinthians 6:18).
And we are loved because Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
This is who we are. We belong to God.
