Fading beauty stealing your joy?

Dear Reader,

Your skin isn't your identity. Let me put it another way. Your skin isn't a reflection of who you are. You don't have to hide yourself away. You deserve the joys of friendship. You deserve to show your face.

So often, we get our identity wrapped up in somewhere it doesn't belong. And usually, we come to this realization when we lose said something.

When we lose a job we loved, we question who we are without it.

When we lose a relationship, we aren't sure who we are without that person.

When we lose our youthful appearance, we question who we are without our "beauty".

But we are more than the sum of our job, relationships, and looks. In fact, none of those things can withstand the pressure of having our identity rooted in them.

They will all eventually fade or come crashing down (if we're lucky). Why would I call that luck? Well, when the thing you've put all your worth in fails you, it makes you question who you really are, what your purpose really is.

And I believe that's the best place to be, because, you were created for God. And he's the only one that can bear the weight of your affection and truly satisfy your soul.
