A few weeks ago in my step study we were talking about our identity. The story of Jesus when he first asked the disciples to follow him came up.
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.
And how fishing was their lively hood and who they were. But how cool it is that they so quickly put their nets down and followed Jesus.
Then we talked about our identity and how we are defined. I was reminded of the list of positive words that my sponsor had me write months earlier.
One way we are identified is by our finger prints. So I combined my list of words that I wrote with some new truths of who I am and drew this finger print with the words written as affirmations.
I love this. It fills me up in a way that nothing else can. Working the steps is so great for my soul. It’s an opportunity to grow and be in His word. It’s an opportunity to learn with other amazing faithfulled women.
