As a pastoral counselor, I hear the same negative identity messages being repeated over and over in people’s lives. These messages often define how people act and cope with life, but they are rarely examined as the causes behind behavior. When I feel like a failure, I will often either act like a failure because I’ve given up trying to do something different, or work really hard to prove I’m not. I wrote this book to help you identify some of these identity messages based on past experiences and examine God’s truth about who you are in Christ as opposed to how you might feel. My hope is you will begin to see the result of living to these lies and find freedom to live according to the truth of Jesus’ Life in you.
