When you are old enough to understand the truths in God’s word, you may realize some unhealthy seeds were planted in your heart. How do you root out the unhealthy and replace with the healthy?

In today’s episode, we talk about how our identity is in Christ and not a reflection in the mirror. My guest, Carol Chisolm, calls herself a survivor after suffering many years with alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that results in hair loss. She coined the phrase “I have alopecia, but it doesn’t have me” to remind herself that her identity is in Christ and not a reflection in the mirror. She has a real passion for helping others understand that we are God’s workmanship and not defined by our physical flaws and imperfections. This episode discusses how our perceived flaws or imperfections limits our effectiveness and the hope we have for overcoming them.
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.
This is my birthday week, and in this episode, I wanted to give back to you, our faithful listener. In this episode, I focus on the lies that we often believe and truths from the Bible about our identity. It’s so important to know what God says about us and believe it over the lies of the enemy. I also share the impetus for my daily social media “Today is a good day…” devotions.

The truth is we are not wired for uncertainty, even as believers. Life’s curve balls that throw us off course can be a real struggle. In the midst of our storms, God wants to give us hope and establish who we are in Christ. Read more for who God says you are in Christ.
