Who am I?
Posted on December 16, 2019 by Catey Stover in Victory Call
Identity is something I’ve struggled with my whole life. Like a lot of kids, I never felt like I “fit in”. I went from friend group to friend group, bounced back and forth from hobbies and “scenes”. I felt like I didn’t belong anywhere, and that caused a lot of anxiety for me. With having divorced parents, I felt like I was living a double life sometimes. Of course I felt this way; I was basing my identity off of worldly things.
Now, I’ve been saved for a little over a year, and I know that my identity is found in CHRIST ALONE. Not in a friend, boyfriend, job, etc. It’s so easy to get caught up in labels and stereotypes. I love social media; it’s part of my job, but sometimes I catch myself comparing my life to those I see on Instagram or Facebook. It’s easy to lose yourself, but thankfully, we have a God who reaches His hand down and literally picks us up and puts us back on our path.
Galatians 2:20 says it best, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
That was our verse this summer at Keswick, and it was the first verse that I ever memorized. Christ died for ME. He died for YOU. So that we may have eternal life with HIM. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to trust what HE has to say about me. Worldly things change, God is constant.
I am not my singleness
I am not what people think of me
I am not the job I have
I am Catey, and I am a child of God
