Day 3: Believe #write31days2018

Something I’ve been contemplating lately is how I live out what I believe in specific areas of my life. I have particularly been considering how my identity in Christ shapes my behavior.

If I believe, truly deep down, not just on a cerebral level, that I am a Daughter of the King of Kings, I will behave differently than if I believe I am still an orphan without a home.

If I believe that I am redeemed and saved by grace, I will stop striving to achieve and earn God’s love, living instead in the rest and peace of being fully His, even as I am fully known.

If I believe that my home is heaven and that my life on earth is short, I will be more intentional about how I spend my time and steward my temporary resources.

If I believe that my children are a gift and blessing, I will be glad to serve and train them up in the Lord, rather than often wishing they would not be such a “burden.”

My beliefs cannot remain only head knowledge. They must be fully rooted in my heart. They must make a difference in how I think, feel, act and speak. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may believe more fully and walk in the Light of Truth. Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!

P.S.–If you are a regular reader wondering what happened to the Wellness Wednesday Link-up this week, I am taking a break from hosting it for this month due to the Write 31 Days challenge. Wellness Wednesdays will resume again in November!
