Quite frankly, I find it hard to stay rooted in my Christ given identity when I’m also a thousand other roles during my everyday life.
I called this blog post, daughter first so that I for one don’t forget the order of importance, and hopefully to remind you fellow daughters of God that
who you are in HIM is the foundation of your identity.
How I see my Identity in this season of life
1st Daughter of God
2nd Wife of Husband
3rd Friend to All
The 1st will always be 1st, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. can shift, grow and change as life changes.
Let’s not forget who we are 1st and foremost. Daughters of God.
What hats we wear everyday could vary from things like ‘wife’ ‘teacher’ ‘mentor’ ‘mum’ ‘manager’ ‘personal assistant’ ‘top taker’ ‘sister’ ‘girlfriend’ ‘friend’....
Hats of Responsibility are not a bad thing in themselves, usually they’re God given responsibilities. It’s the order of importance we give them that matters.
Can I suggest something?
Today, when you come to Jesus, try taking off the hats and just be a daughter for a little while....
Because the truth is….all other roles that we play flow from our identity as children of God.
2 Corinthians 6:18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
