Things don’t always go as we want them to. Bad things happen and always will. Companies close. People move. What we once held dear can be taken away from us. It is how we react to those things that gives us great insight into where our heart is and how we find our identity, for as one of the characters in the new movie Overcomer notes, ” Your identity is tied to whatever you give your heart to.” He goes on to note that, “Something or someone will have first place in your heart. When you find your identity in the One Who created you, it will change your whole perspective.”
I’ll let that last statement sink in a bit.
In a world that seems to have lost its mind and all sense of reason regarding the concept of identity, Overcomer gives hope! There is a solid foundation in which we can find our selves, our worth, and our future. We cannot allow our past to define us or hold us back, for we are offered forgiveness freely from the only One Who is able to change us from the inside out.
