To the person who feels like quitting, please don’t. Don’t give in. Your feelings and circumstances are real, but they don’t get to define your identity unless you let them. They’re certainly not what God sees when he looks at you.
He knows every negative thought you’ve had about everything you’re facing, but he still sees you as the person you’re capable of becoming in him. You’re his child—confident, joyful, and so, so loved. More than you can imagine. I’m praying you’ll allow his grace to transform you to see yourself, your relationships, and your world with all the love he does.
“Be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4.17-24)
