God helped me find an awesome church, Moment Church, roughly 2 months ago. Although it is located all the way out in California, I make sure to watch the sermons every Sunday and usually listen to past messages on their Vimeo page. Pastor Tony Wood brings so much truth with his messages. Some pastors water down the Scripture but not Pastor Tony. He keeps it real & relevant.
Tony’s wife Bre has been a inspiration to me, her total honesty in one of their messages “Confessions” spoke to my heart. I think many women can relate to the things Bre has struggled with. After listening to “Confessions” I e-mailed Bre to thank her for being so real and honest. I shared with her the areas that I too struggled with. To my surprise, the next day I received a reply from her that included an attachment called “Who I am in Christ”. When I opened it a found affirmations with corresponding Bibles verses broken down into 3 sections: I Am Accepted, I Am Secure, I Am Significant. I don’t know a single person out there that hasn’t (or doesn’t currently) struggle with feeling unaccepted, insecure, or unworthy.
I decided to blog about each of those affirmations over the next few weeks. I think it is easy for us to sometimes fall back into our negative feelings and believe what the World tells us. It is so easy to forget who we are in Christ and get caught up in what others tell us we are…or even worse, get caught up in who we tell ourselves that we are.
