Refocus/Identity Crises

I want to refocus my blog and a feel the need to explain. I've had a change of focus in my life and I want that to transfer in what I do. I've realized even more than I ever have these past weeks what really matters in life. Jesus is what matters. I don't want to miss the point of life by talking about or doing pointless things that don't relate to my faith and what I believe to be true in my life. My faith is what keeps me grounded and secure in who I am because I don't rely on the world for my identity.

You ever felt like you don't know who you are or what you're doing with your life? Me too man, me too. Why do we get like this?
When we put our identity in the world and those expectations, to hustle, to be liked, to have money, we really end up losing ourselves while we are trying to "find ourselves". We can't put our identity or our hope in empty things. There is nothing that can compare to putting your identity in Christ, it is so much better. I don't feel like I have to prove myself. I've already been proven worthy by God. I don't feel the need to 'find myself'' or discover who I am anymore because I already know. My identity is in Christ. No one and nothing else defines me and I don't let anyone or anything else define me. I want to root myself in faith so that I don't have to try to live up to the expectations set on me by the world or by my old self. I feel free in my faith, knowing who I am as an individual handcrafted by God, perfectly loved, and I want that for you too. I want you to know your identity so that you don't have to keep searching for it and longing for that feeling of belonging that the world can never really give you longterm. Only Jesus can give that to you, and it's right there for you to take it. When we put our Identity in Jesus, the expectations melt away, the burdens of our insecurities have no purpose anymore. We are free to live. I don't know about you but I want that. I want to feel free in my identity and not feel the need to conform or meet the standards or trends of other people in the world or on the internet. I want to live and love the way Jesus loves me and I want to spread that life and love to others around me.

There is so much more to life than trends, or popularity, or success or fame, not that those are bad things but we can't let our lives be consumed by them. We must focus on Jesus's love for us, and let that be our identity.
