Who I am

One evening last fall I went through my Bible and just began writing down verses about my identity in Christ and declaring them over myself. I printed them out and posted them in my closet to look at and read everyday and  they are so strengthening to me. The enemy often targets our identity with lies and deception because of the power that is in realizing God’s truth about who we are in Him. That’s what this is. Feel free to print them out or share, and be blessed! 🙂
