Hope for the Hurting
The enemy delights in telling us who and what we aren’t, but our loving Father delights in telling us all about finding our identity in Christ. It’s only in embracing the truths from God’s Word that we can become all He destined us to be. As Christ followers, we have the Holy Spirit residing within us to remind us of all truth. But the Holy Spirit can only remind us of the truth we have already taken the time to learn. There is no greater endeavor than committing His truth to memory.

Who are you? I am so and so’s spouse, I am so and so’s mother, I am a nurse, doctor, secretary, pilot…you fill in that blank. These are the typical answers to that question. However, is that who you really are? Our true identity does not lie in what we do, but in who we are – in Christ. In today’s post, Tina Smith shares what it means to be a child of God.
Depression always carries with it a high risk of suicide. While this discussion can be frightening, if not alarming, to some adults, there are specific risk factors and warning signs that parents can look for in their children and teens. Knowing this information could save lives.
