We have to decide how we are going to define our self-worth and value through our self-identity.
This means we must engage in stripping ourselves (naked now) of seeing ourselves through yesterday vision while we focus on self-image through tomorrow lenses. This will release the tension and anxiety that comes from living within our self-identity collision of opposite (who we used to be to what we want to be in the future).
Let us found our self-identity in the now (present). Let us prayerfully seek God’s guidance through the Holy Spirit to help us live within this moment, better yet this second. First before moving forward, let us accept and acknowledge that we are not perfect; however, God’s love, grace, and mercy covers our imperfections. Next, let us move forward remember that “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV). Finally, let us breathe, take time to enjoy our environment, and accept who we are in this moment in Christ. “I do not accept glory from human beings, but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (John 5:41-44 NIV).
