Finally!!I have done it! I am so excited to start my own blog. It has taken great amounts of courage and umph to do it, but I thank God that He has enabled me to do it. The reason I decided to start this blog was to enable people with identity issues particularly self-esteem issues to know that it is possible to overcome these issues with God’s divine enablement. I have had struggled with myself, my identity, who I am, my worth and the sole purpose of my existence. I have attached my identity to the wrong things such as my body image, my education, how intelligent I am, my background among other things. I have had moments where I felt so empty and hopeless, I had moments when I thought of ending my life but I thank God that He allowed me to go through all of that so that I am able to encourage someone else going through the same.
I would like to let you know that whoever you are, wherever you are, you are important and the mere fact of your existence is a miracle. You are not defined by your past mistakes, your abilities, your failures or even your successes, you are defined by God. You are unique and gifted and you are great worth. Allow God to define who you are. On Christ the solid rock I Stand all other ground is sinking sand. Finally allow me to leave you with one of my favourite verses that depicts how valuable you are to God.
1 Peter 1:18-19”For you know it was not with perishable things such as silver and gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious lamb of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
