“When we see who we really are in grace, in Christ, we discover the nature and beauty of God and we are undone by love.”
“It’s never about who you’re not; it’s about who you are becoming.”
The much-maligned magpie is the only bird that passes the mirror test and recognizes it has an identity. Change is all about learning our true identity as a much-loved child of a relentlessly kind God, and worshipping Him frees us to be who He created us to be. Worship is the way up to a higher place, above snarling threats on the ground.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler… (Psalm 91:2,3)
