With all the back to school pictures, I thought I would share one of my senior pictures, who were taken by my talented cousin in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
I wish I could go back and tell this girl or even earlier to keep being yourself. Don't let lies get into your head and keep you from being your true self, hitting your goals, or doing something bold. I would tell her to not let others opinion about you shape your identity, but to fully and completely put your identity in Jesus Christ. "Whenever we speak of our identity as a woman, a wife, or a pastor’s wife, let us have in our minds the primary reference point of being 'found in him' (Phil. 3:9). Every hat we wear or role we play must be viewed through this perspective. Like the 'lost' glasses that were always on your face, your identity is always found in him whether or not you are conscious of it. This is why we need to rehearse the gospel often, asking the Spirit to transform us and re-mind us of God’s truth (Rom. 12:2)."-Gloria Furman
