Often, it’s easy to forget where my true identity lies. So many other things pull my attention. People, class, work, responsibilities, passions. I allow those things to become my gods. I work myself to exhaustion for those things. Yet, the whole time God is calling, “Come, my love. Find rest in me. Find value in me. Find purpose in my glory.” He knows this is what I need, what I truly long for.
