Mental Health Tip: Practice Knowing The Truth Of Who You Are

November 23, 2015 7:48 am

Less than a week ago, I joined Bradley Will and some other members of LearnToBlog.com in a 30 day blog challenge.

So I need a health video every day for 30 days.  And I’m already behind a day.  Eek.

What stops me most often from making video, is not liking how I look. Right now – it’s 1 o’clock in the morning and exhaustion most likely covers my makeup-less face. Hair from Fraggle Rock.  You get the gist.

So I decided that I would share another video and write about that.

I searched for some interesting health videos – but none were really inspiring me. And then this song came on Spotify as I was working.  Yes.

Every time I hear it I get goosebumps.

And then I did it. I made the leap.

This could be a mental health tip. Brilliant, Jen.

In any case, this song is exactly what I need to hear on a daily basis and the good news of Jesus really IS the most important health tip of all time.

For real though.  Not that big of a leap, really.

In my faith walk, increasingly I find more comfort in knowing that He loves me unconditionally. I realize it in layers and realize I’m still never going to grasp His love.  It blows my mind on a regular basis.

And it’s the only way this world seems bearable to me.

So. Mental health tip of the day – listen to some worship music and remember who you are. Do that thing you were born to do… Shine in His glory.

The only thing that keeps me sane in this world is knowing that He’s in control.  I can chill out and calm down.

But I might need a reminder.

And when I hear the voices that say I’m not this enough, or I am too that – I remember my TRUE identity.  And even when I don’t feel zesty enough to make a video- He loves me just the same.

And in that love, He makes me resilient.  And beautiful.  And worth dying for…

Wow. I’m making myself get teary-eyed,

Our God is a Good Good Father. THAT’s who He is.
And YOU are loved by him. That’s who YOU are.
That is who YOU are.

good good father
Awesome, right?

Beginning to let go of our identity in this world and trusting in and eternal identity can be both a challenging and exhilarating process. I often feel like I’m in The Matrix.  And I need lots of reminders.

Anyway. This was supposed to be a quick post and here I am getting all deep on you guys.

But seriously.  Jesus.  Best tip ever.Is Coaching right for you-
