Who are You?

There is still so much emphasis on our gender, culture, employment, or even marital status – to name a few – that we still have to remind ourselves about our true identity continuously. This is because the world wants to define us by these things, and not walk together, united, as one

I grew up wanting to be someone else. I was told that this was a man’s world, and my purpose was simply to make sure that my husband was happy because he would then look after me

My culture defined that my dreams should align with their expectations of me

Therefore, I grew up believing men were superior, and the only ones who would be successful.

This bought anger and resentment, let alone rejection into my heart, because I felt like I would never be good enough, or be given a voice to do what I felt was my direction in life

I love that my daughter knows her true identity, but I also love that her heroine in the Bible, is Esther. She says that Esther was strong and brave to stand up for what she knew was right. If anyone knows our Daughter, Sarai, you will understand that equality is what she fights for

I love Esther because she wasn’t going to let the ”labels” of society, stop her from saving her people. I can only imagine how terrifying that must have been, but she walked by faith, knowing that she was a Daughter of the Most High, and ultimately, she believed that His will would reign over her life

I want to encourage you this morning, that your background doesn’t define your future.

All God needs is a ”Yes, and Amen” from you, and He will guide you to do the rest

You have more purpose in this world than you’ll ever know, but my prayer is that you will go after what you were created to do, and only be defined by who God says you are, because that my friend, is ultimately, what will make or break us

”But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
