For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26 KJV)
I am not defined by a number. I am defined by God. His word says I am His child. Every day, every time that should be enough. However, often the world tries to define us differently and we listen. Not today! Enough is enough. Let’s declare:
I am not a number on a scale.
Nor the miles walked on a trail.
I am not the positive number in my bank account
Nor the negative number amount.
I am not the carat weight on my fingers
Nor the number of strikeouts nor dingers.
I am not the hours I worked.
Nor the hours I have been irked.
I am not the number of college degrees
Nor the number of par threes.
I am not defined by the number of friends
Nor the number on my Mercedes-Benz…not!
I am not the number on my houses.
Nor the number of my spouses.
I love that God took some serious thoughts about numbers and turned them into almost a laughable poem. That’s our God.
I enCOURAGE you to only be defined by God. Do not listen to those numbers. God is greater.
