Day 16: Star Power - Discovering Who You Were Meant To Be

Discovering Who You Were Meant To Be - Based on One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook
Life Lesson (from journal): "To know our purpose in life, we must learn who we are, and we do that by recognizing whose we are. Our purpose and identity grow clearer as we come to know God better.
Chris Shook starts Day 16 talking about her love for the stars and she looks at the stars and the moon and she loves how they were made. You may also want to know what you were created to do?

To understand your identity, listen to what your generous and inventive Creator said in Ephesians 1:3-14.

Satan uses the same ammo over and over, but he tailors each bullet to its individual victim. Write a list of the lies he has custom-designed for you to ensure your maximum memory loss.

Use these verses to come up with God's antidotes for some or all of the lies you just listed. Personalize these verses. After all, they're God's words to you. (John 1:11-13; Galatians 3:26; 4:4-7; 1 John 3:1-3)

What can you do to fix God's truths about you firmly in your memory? Consider ideas from James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8-9; and 1 John 2:1-2.

What can you be confident that you can discover God's special purpose for you? (Psalm 25:12; Philippians 2:13)

We can all learn more about who God made us to be by focusing on Him. As we develop a closer relationship with God, we become more like Him, thwarting our Enemy's attempts to steal our identity.

Today's Challenge
Find, buy, or create something that will remind you of your identity. Choose a symbolic object, a bookmark, a poster... Paint a picture, create a collage, make a video...Write a poem, record a song, create a personalized identity dictionary, or whatever.
   Think ahead about how you will use it as a daily reminder. Will you hang it on your wall, put it inside the novel you're currently reading, make it your alarm in the morning attach it to your key ring?

I actually found a great piece of Art that reads, "chase your dreams". It is always in my line of sight in my living room. Really cool!  

Leave your feedback on what you found that will help you to understand your identity and your purpose.
