I can’t control my mouth.  I’m a cynic.  I’m an addict.  I’m a victim.  I’m fearful.  I can’t change. 

These statements may echo our experiences, but if we allow our experiences and brokenness to define us, then we shut out the possibility that we can be restored to the glorious image of our Creator.

The First Step of Answering “Who Am I?”

“Who am I?” is the question that haunts us.  This question will tease our minds until we first answer the question that Jesus asked Peter:  “Who do you say that I am?”  Only when we answer with Peter, “You are the Messiah,” meaning our savior and deliverer, will we be able to hear the Lord’s answer to our question, “Who am I?”

Our identity is like clay, molded by experiences, relationships, and our responses to them.  This clay is vulnerable, especially in the impressionable young.  Sometimes, unguarded clay can be malformed or disfigured when touched by the gnarled hands of traumatic experiences, abusive relationships, and inappropriate responses to them both.

Laura Perry’s Transgender Lifestyle

For example, First Stone Ministries recently published the compelling testimony of Laura Perry, who lived a transgender lifestyle for eight years.  Laura grew up in the shadow of her hyper-stressed, “super-Christian” mother.  Her mom communicated the message that Laura was a nuisance, while she doted on Laura’s more quiet, compliant brother.  The intense jealously this bred, combined with being molested at age eight, and female problems in her teens, was enough that Laura threw her female identity into a deep cistern.

Laura began fantasizing about being a boy due to her intense hatred of her own gender.  She began to seek out sexual experiences, became addicted to pornography, and pursued sexual encounters with strangers.  A local transgender group then encouraged her to pursue her new identity, so she received heavy doses of hormonal therapy, a double mastectomy, and surgical remove of all female organs to fully become “Jake.”  Laura’s name and body were changed, but her deep depression and dissatisfaction stayed the same.  She recalled, “The outward cosmetic change had done nothing to ease my identity crisis.”

Transformations & Finding Their Identity

As Laura was transforming, her mother was undergoing a transformation of her own.  Laura’s mom surrendered her self-righteousness for an enticing faith in Jesus.  The two of them began to talk daily about a Bible study her mom was leading.  Then Laura heard a radio broadcast discussing the rising transgender issue.  She wished the host would return to more mundane topics, but instead the words spun her identity around like clay on the potter’s wheel.  She was reeling.

Two questions came to her in a vision from Jesus:  

“If you stood before me tonight, what name would I call?” and “Do you trust me?”

Taking Part in the Death & Resurrection

Laura affirmed her trust in Jesus by letting Jake die, a death that she mourned with deep, anguished sorrow.  In the dark night of her soul, she wept with painful grief for three days.  One can imagine Jesus with her in the tomb, waiting to guide the resurrection that was soon to come.

Leaving Jake’s clothes in the grave, Laura attended a women’s Bible study and encountered a love beyond anything she had experienced through a sexual partner.  Life and freedom were her resurrection inheritance, and in the light of love, her true identity was revealed.

Finding Our True Identity

Instead of gender reassignment surgery, do we let the Word perform identity reassignment surgery?  Do we have courage, like Laura, that allows the Lord to transform every aspect of who we think we are at the deepest level?

All too often, we identity with our sin and brokenness more than we identify with the image of God.  We must look to YHWH, the great “I AM,” to confidently answer the question, “Who am I?”

Our true assignment is to reflect the image of God in Christ.  Love calls us to identity with Him.

My Personal Babel and Making Much of Me

My Personal Babel and Making Much of Me

Meredith P

Hello, there!  I grew up as a military kid who loved adventure, so I fell in love with and married a military man right after college graduation.  The two of us had adventures together as we traveled for a while, but we finally settled in cozy Southern Indiana.  However the excitement is still alive, because God has given us four kiddos that I homeschool.  I love nerding out on anything from school curriculum to thrift store bargain hunting, from rockin' recipes to theological debates, and pretty much any lively discussion in between.  Thanks for reading!

I’m pretty sure I would have been the one to lay the cornerstone for the Tower of Babel.

My Personal Tower of Babel

I didn’t always think this. In my blind pride, I used to read the story in Genesis 11 and think, “Good night moon! These people are really thickheaded!”

But here’s how I know I could have been the one to place that stone; I have thought to myself what they said out loud at Babel,

“…so that we may make a name for ourselves…” (Genesis 11:4, NIV)

I confess, I have wanted to make a name for myself.

I have craved all the glory for a job well done.

I have thirsted for all the recognition for doing “good” deeds.

I have hungered, above all else, for the love and approval of people.

Though these are broad examples, you can probably imagine some specific ways these general desires might manifest in my life or maybe even in yours.

The truth is, all of the craving and thirsting and hungering leaves me empty no matter how much I receive. And leaves me in shambles when receive none. This name for myself is a dangling carrot that is never caught, and like an addiction, always leaves me grasping for more. More glory, more approval, more…

It never satisfies.

It is exhausting.

But I know that an exhausted, unsatisfied, shamble of a life is not what Jesus means for any of us. He says he “came that they may have life, and hive it to the full.” (John 10:10, NIV)

Jesus says there is more.

That more is this truth:

I was not created to have a Name.I was not created to have a Name.

In vain, I have searched the scriptures trying to find justification of building myself a tower; for making myself a name. It isn’t there.

But, I did find a Name. It just wasn’t mine.

“My name will be great among he nations from where the sun rises to where it sets… my name will be great among the nations, says the LORD Almighty. (Malachi 1:11, NIV)

I found God’s name.

He says His name WILL be great.

One example in particular struck me hard. Jesus calls for God the Father’s name to be glorified.

Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” (John 12:28, NIV)

I claim to be a follower of Jesus. What have I not been following Jesus in this? I’m struck with this discrepancy in my Christianity. The truth is that I have been so occupied elevating my name, that I lost sight of the only Name that is worthy elevation.

Searching the scripture, I found that everything I am and everything I do is actually for the glory of God’s name, not my own.

I am created for the glory of His Name.

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16, NIV)

Not that the task of elevating His name is mine to bear with my deeds or my life. Oh no, God is not depending on my performance to make His name great. What trouble He would be in if He were to depend on me with my false tower of Babel building and other missteps!

It is freeing to worship a God who is so powerful, He needs nothing from me. He needs nothing from me, yet He offers me a place to work by His side. He is a God who gives and has no need to take.

Now that is One whose Name is worthy of glory. Not mine.

So, I have come to the point where I am earnest about tearing down the idol I’m pointlessly trying to build of making a name for myself. I’ve been asking God to change me. To crumble my personal Tower of Babel. And because He gives, God is changing my heart to not just want, but to actually crave to place God and His Name in the rightful place: glorified above all else. And I am enjoying the freedom that comes from it. 

John the Baptist is an inspiring example of one who did not seek to make a name for himself. Ironically, he did in a way have a name for himself. People came to him to be baptized and forgiven of their sins. He actually had his own disciples!

Then Jesus comes on the scene.

When people around John see that those who were his disciples are leaving to become followers of Jesus, they say, “…-look, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him.” (John 3:26, NIV)

John replies, “I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him… He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30, NIV)

Now, instead of thinking what those at the Tower of Babel said aloud, “…so that we may make a name for ourselves…” I think I need to start thinking what John the Baptist said aloud.

“He must become more, I must become less.”

I’m trying to filter my actions and thoughts through this one question: How can I make more of Him and His Kingdom and less of me in this situation?

I am Free

With this in the front of my mind, I am free in Christ to serve Him.  Free from the weight of bearing a name that I can never obtain because I was not created to bear a name. I can just be me.

I am free to be nothing because He is everything.

I am free to fail because He has already succeeded.

I am free to be rejected because He accepts me.

I am free to be me, when I recognize God for Him: Glorious.

I am realizing that this is where my cravings, thirst, and hunger for a name will be satisfied. It’s not in trying to fit into a role I was not created for. Much like pants that are too tight, I’ve been uncomfortable in my misplaced striving to make a name for myself. But in starting to live to make much of Christ who loves me and you more than His own life, I feel as though I’m slipping into my favorite jeans. It fits well.

Cravings are ceasing.

Thirst is quenching

Hunger is fleeing.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35, NIV)

Jesus, I come to You and I place Your Name high.

Ah, satisfaction.

In what ways do you make a name for yourself over making much of Christ?

If you can’t think of any, ask the Lord to reveal to you if you are missing anything. I am asking Him that too.

Jesus can set all of us free from the sins of our past and present even a meth addiction!

Freedom through Christ

Almost 3 years ago, I had the opportunity to meet and become friends with Beth.  Her redemption story truly glorifies God and shows how He loves us no matter what. Her story of being redeemed from a meth addiction show how God really can rescue us from the depths of darkness.

Now, Beth shares her past of enslavement and her rescue story to give hope to others who feel hopeless and worthless.  With God all things are possible including recovery and a new life in Christ.

Colossians 1:13-14

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Beth’s Redemption from a Meth Addiction

My name is Beth and I’m in recovery.

December 2, 2008 I used meth the last time and pray daily it was my last time. I’ve been asked several times, why at 31, self employed very profitable business, two beautiful daughters 7 and 12, three bedroom home, new sports car and stable relationships with my family and some great friend I would ever try meth?

Why? Because it was offered to me. Because I had recently gone through a divorce. Because I was dating a drug user and tried to keep up with his life style for almost six months. Because my self esteem had always suffered.

They say if you try meth once you might be able to walk away from it. Try it twice and you’re addicted.
From that night on until December 2, 2008 I used daily. Unless I was sleeping which wasn’t often, or in jail, I used and I used a lot.

Pruning Roses

Pruning Roses

Tracy Watts

Wife, mom, daughter, teacher, blogger, crafter, organizer - but most and best of all, I am a Christian. I am passionate about my family and my God. I am married to my best friend and am blessed with a one year old son who keeps me busy all the time staying at home with him. And I am glad to be in the service of our incredible and awesome God.
Tracy Watts

Today, I pruned our rose bushes. This is not my favorite job, even at the best of times. It certainly is not my favorite while being eight months pregnant. Pruning is hard work–prickly, back ache-y, and tough.

Pruning is Necessary

And yet, any gardener worth his salt will tell you that you need to prune your rose bushes. Something happens, even though it seems backwards. That cutting and snipping–with those awful, sharp scissors–it seems merciful that plants don’t have feeling! It would be horrible to feel each clip and snip, to watch your former glory fall off, dead and useless to the cold, wintry ground.

But it does something wonderful for the rose bush. You see, not only does the rosebush grow back, it grows back fuller, richer, more beautifully. The rose bush needed to have its branches pruned, no matter how painful (for the bush or for the cutter) in order for the rose to be at its best and most beautiful.

A Parallel in Our Own Lives

Isn’t that how we are with God? John 15:2 says:

Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

God knows exactly what we are capable of. And although pruning is certainly a better alternative to being thrown away, we know it to be painful in our own lives. When God’s deft, loving, and wise fingers prune me, it hurts. It hurts when sin must be ripped out of the dark corners of my life. It hurts when old, selfish habits must be relearned and bettered. When I must change my heart and my actions, it hurts. Because change is hard and often painful.

Pruning Sin from My Life Makes Me More Like Jesus

But I can also take hope. Just as I pruned my rosebushes, not with malice but with an eye to the future, with an understanding that it was for the bush’s best interests, certainly the Master Gardener, the Creator, the Almighty, will prune me with such thoughts. It may sting a little in the meantime, but in the end, I can be even more beautiful than a rose. I can be a reflection of Christ himself.

I now have a new favorite soup and it happened completely by accident. My dinner was nearly a disaster!

I had prepped all the veggies to make a chicken roast only to realize that I had waited too long to use the chicken…stinky!!  Truly stinky!!  So I thought I would salvage the rest and make a veggie broth and add a box of orzo for dinner.

Well, it sounded like a good plan until I tasted my creation and realized I had added WAY TOO MUCH PEPPER!

After I posted a “Save Dinner SOS” on Facebook, I headed over to Google to see what others had found.

I’m so thankful I asked my cooking friends for help on Facebook first, because they came back with the answers that saved my dinner and brought about this new favorite soup recipe.

Are you ready for this? The answer to too much pepper is

Lemon and Cream!Dinner SOS

 In case you’re curious, the recipe, which I’ll call Creamy Vegetable Orzo Soup, is super easy. Cut all the following into bite-size pieces:

  • 1 sweet potato or white potato
  • 2 onions
  • 4 ribs of celery
  • 4 carrots
  • 6-8 garlic cloves (minced)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • About 1 Tbsp Herbamare
  • Add all this to a large pot and saute everything above in coconut oil for several minutes to your liking.  (I typically saute them for 5-8 minutes so they are still a bit crunchy.)
  • Add water to almost full and then let simmer for 30 minutes.  (The longer the better flavor, but this night, we were hungry and needed to eat soon.)
  • Right before you are ready to serve add 2-4 drops of lemon oil or 1/2-1 full lemon juiced and 1 cup cream.  (I would recommend starting with a little of each and then add more as desired.)
  • Cook the orzo in a separate pot and add it to the big pot when the soup is ready to serve.

This dinner which was almost a debacle really got me thinking about our lives.

We start out with high hopes, but sometimes we get sidetracked by something that was not part of God’s plan for our lives.  Maybe we get too focused on money, our looks, or our job titles. Maybe we just leave God out altogether because we like our plan better than His.

Usually, veering off track brings heartache. Sometimes we feel like there is no way God could use us again.  We’ve made a mess of our lives that can’t be corrected.  That is an outright lie brought to you by the king of lies and destruction.

Don’t believe the lie! Just like my damaged soup, Jesus can take you right where you are and bring about such a new creation that the world will only be able to stand in awe of His handiwork.

jesus-can-take-you-right-where-you-are-and-bring-about-such-a-new-creation-that-the-world-will-only-be-able-to-stand-in-awe-of-his-handiwork-pinterest

We see this story over and over again in the restoration powers of Jesus’ healing hands.  Whether it was healing the demon-possessed man who lived in the graveyard or raising Lazarus from the dead, it’s the hope of a resurrected heart and a new life that has Him living at the middle of it instead of ourselves.

mark-5-19

Right now, hand over to Jesus whatever horrible thing you think God can’t clean you of. The truth is HE CAN and HE WILL!  All you have to do is believe the truth.  Jesus came to cleanse you of all your sins–not just a few, but ALL of them!  Now, that’s a recipe for hope and eternal life!

Embrace it and savor it.

Have you ever let your imperfection keep you from Jesus? I have.

And I’m here to say, no matter how imperfect you are, don’t believe the lie that Jesus needs you to be perfect for you to draw near to him! Never!

He came specifically because HE KNOWS we are not perfect. We can never be perfect without him.  And it is only through him that we can be perfected.

But what about the imperfection that keeps us away? This is my testimony of how long I believed that lie and how Christ finally freed me from it. Praise the Lord for his freedom!

I was sitting against the wall at basketball practice…

…with a few other teammates waiting for our turn for drills. Out of the blue, my friend turned to me and asked,

“If you died today where would you go, heaven or hell?”

Without hesitation, I said, “I would go to hell.”

 

Once asked, that was not a question I could shake off.

It literally haunted me for days, then months. I grew up in a Christian family and I understood that making a commitment to follow Jesus was a big deal and something I should do. But I just couldn’t do it. I might have only been in eighth grade, and I was a “good” person on the outside but on the inside I knew who I really was. I didn’t understand my value to Christ and Satan was using that for all it was worth.

i-didnt-understand-my-value-to-christ-and-satan-was-using-that-for-all-it-was-worth

Not long after that conversation, my grandfather, whom I adored, sat me down at his kitchen table to talk. We always talked, so that wasn’t anything new, but this time it was specifically about my salvation. Love exuded from him. Even though I don’t remember what I said, I do remember how I felt and what I believed. He explained many things, but I couldn’t shake the lie that I had to be better before I could be saved.

In my mind, until I got that one big sin under control, I wasn’t worthy of Christ.

In my desire to be clean for Jesus, I didn’t realize that He is the only one who can cleanse my heart. I remember the internal struggle. I sit here crying as I remember screwing up once again and thinking, “I’m never going to be worthy. This is never going to leave my life. Why me? Why am I stuck with this? Why can’t I get over it?”

My grandfather never got to see me give my life to Christ. Only a few months later, he passed away. His death made his point all the more real…one day we will leave this earth and we will spend eternity somewhere.

After my grandfather passed away, I was devastated. I remember waking up at a slumber party at 4:11 a.m. not knowing why, only to find out the next day that was the exact time he passed away. Although I didn’t see it then, God was working. He was using different people in my life to bring me to Him.

BUT I still couldn’t fathom why he would want me the way that I was. I believed I had to be better for a Savior who was perfect before I could follow him.

The Truth sets us FREE

Thankfully, others did not give up on telling me the truth even though I’d heard it before.  Some needed to plant, some needed to water, right? Well, that principle was definitely happening in my life in regards to rinsing this lie off my heart. I’ll never forget the day my Bible class teacher asked if he could study the Bible with me the following Saturday. I knew what he wanted to talk about and I agreed. That day, one by one, he walked me through Bible verses that showed the truth. Finally, I started to see the truth and see Satan’s lie for what it was…a lie!

From that moment on, I got so excited! I realized there was nothing I could do to make myself clean.  Truly, Jesus is the only One who can wash all our sins away. And better yet, He wants to wash us clean no matter how dirty we are! By following him, we no longer have to be slaves to sin!

This misunderstanding

is one of the reasons why when we read our Bible together as a family, we make it a point to show how God uses imperfect people. Only One who walked this earth was perfect. He died so that all of us imperfects would know true relief from our sins, our shame, and the chains Satan binds us with emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

See, Satan wants us to believe this lie. His goal is to keep us as far away from Christ and his redeeming love as possible. When we start to believe that Christ will meet us right where we are, Satan begins to lose his hold over us. He will try everything to tighten his “death grip” so that we will continue to doubt instead of running to Jesus and trusting him with our lives.

We do not need to be perfect to come to Christ. We do have to be willing to surrender ourselves and follow Christ.

Proof You Do NOT Need to Be Perfect to Come to Christ!

If you struggle with the idea that you have to be perfect to come to Jesus, read over these passages. Let that lie crumble! These verses (and many others) showed me I couldn’t get rid of my imperfections by myself.  Only by putting my faith in Jesus as my Lord and Savior to take away all my sins, did I understand I could come to him in my imperfect state.

As always, it is good to dig into the context of these verses so you get the full picture.  

while-we-were-still-sinners

John 3:16-18 – We have to trust that Jesus died for our sins…all of them!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Hebrews 10:14 – Jesus’ sacrifice

For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

Romans 3:21-24 – All have sinned, everyone is imperfect

There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Did you catch that?  “ALL have sinned” and “ALL are justified” by Christ’s grace! That means no one is perfect before they come to Christ, only after.

(Romans, by the way, is an amazing book on how Christ’s blood covers us.  A total must read!)

Ephesians 2:8-10 – Salvation is God’s gift to us

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

 Romans 5:6-8 – Christ died for us sinners aka the imperfects!

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Acts 2:38 – We can repent of all the sinful things we’ve done

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Romans 6:3-7 – No longer slaves to sin and will be resurrected with Christ!

Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—  because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

(The entire of Romans 6 is great for clearing up this lie!)

Hebrews 12:1-3 – Christ is the perfecter of our faith, not us

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Let God’s truths set you free!

Our Prayer

Lord, we praise you with all that we are! While we were still stuck in our sins, you sent Christ to die for us. To save us! You count us worthy and love us, even when we are ashamed of everything we’ve done. You hold your arms open to us and tell us to run straight into them. You’ve missed us and want an everlasting relationship with us. Help the lies that Satan uses to hold us from you to fall from our eyes. Help us believe your truth instead. Let us be in your word so we can fight the lies of Satan away from our hearts. Let him never enslave us again. In your One and Only Son who brought us true freedom – Amen!
