Every single time I’ve lowered my guard, dropped my pride, and approached God confessing my need for him, he meets me. He never turns me away, embarrasses me, or rejects my vulnerability. He relentlessly extends himself to us and willingly restores our identity in Christ. Don’t be confused—our identity is secure. It’s not security He’s restoring, but our mindset so we can live in the boldness that comes with knowing who we are. It’s a heavy proclamation, but it’s true—that we have been made the righteousness of Christ.

When you’re struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through.
