"I don’t want to hear any of you bragging about yourself or anyone else. Everything is already yours as a gift—Paul, Apollos, Peter, the world, life, death, the present, the future—all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God." (The Message)

  1. I have attempted to find my identity in my partner, in my boss, and in my friends. Finding my identity in any of these has led to feelings pushing my away from these people and almost resenting them (unless I catch on to my mistake). Placing my identity in my partner has led to to jealousy, trust and resentment. How scary is it if all my love, hope, faith and identity is pooled into one person? If I allow myself to place my identity in her, there's no questions to it... I WILL begin to feel jealous and ill stop trusting her until i place my identity once again in Jesus. At work I find it all too easy to make the most important thing in the world to be amazing at my job, and make my boss proud. This results in pressure, stress and anxiety on the job until I notice this and place my identity back in Jesus. With my friends, not all of them live a life style that resonates well with me, so if I allow myself to place my identity in them then OF COURSE Ill begin to pick up some of their life style choices that may be completely toxic to me as well as my faith. I suppose it feels like if I place my identity in someone besides Jesus Christ, its the same as worshipping idols, and that is something dangerous, and toxic to my life, as well as the lives of those around me.
