Defining Yourself – Identity

Daily Prompt: Name that… You!

Do you know the meaning of your name, and why your parents chose it? Do you think it suits you? What about your children’s names?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us IDENTITY.

Today I am no longer who I thought I was. I used to put all sorts of labels on myself. And I used to believe the labels that others put on me. NO MORE!  It was kind of funny, when the ‘light bulb’ went off for me.  I used to be depressed.  I used to take medicine and not get out of bed. And all day I would talk about how depressed I was to whoever would listen.  The more I talked about it the worse I felt. And then, in my eyes – I BECAME depression. Talk about a downer!  LOL!  Things only started to change for me when I kept my mouth shut and stopped repeating the negative words over myself.  I had to stop beating myself up with my words – especially when I looked in the mirror. And I had to start speaking positive words over myself – whether I liked it or not, whether I felt it or not.

Then, I had to learn the truth. Who does God say I am? Because obviously, I had no idea.  I gave my power away and let others define me – what a mistake.  No wonder I was an easy target for an Abuser.  He could tell me whatever he wanted to and I would believe it. And seriously, after hearing those words day in and day out for years – you get brainwashed into thinking they are true.  I won’t repeat those words – even here, but I am sure you have your own “words” that were spoken over you that were harmful.

I can testify that those words can be broken off – and turned into dust.  But you have to speak to your own mountain to get it to move.  Your body responds to your voice.  I encourage you to speak the WORD over your life – and watch and see what happens!  If you need those positive words – print this out and put it on your mirror:

THE FATHER’S LOVE LETTER

Today I let God define me, and what He says replaces the ‘labels’ that used to confine me.

We had another daily prompt like this one –  here is what ‘Diana’ means:
DIANA – means….
