Deeper Faith: Acceptance and Identity RSS feed for Acceptance and Identity

Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Acceptance and Identity

You may be a wife, mother, friend, physician, teacher. Those are all roles you play. But they are not who you are at your core. At your core, you are a child of God, created in his image, called and designed with special gifts, loved intensely and unconditionally "just because." God isn't as concerned with what you do as much as with who you are. Accepting that understanding is the first step to the freedom of living out God's call on your life.
