Random Ramblings, Materialism, Parenting & Upcoming Event

6:48:00 PM

Hey y'all! I don't have anything major to sell to you or talk about today. But, I felt like it was time to stop in and just chat. A little free thinking, train of consciousness kind of blog.

At church yesterday, our pastor introduced this year's theme for our lenten studies; "Identity". It's a common topic in Christian circles. Where do we get our identity from. Are we our jobs? Are we our social status? Are we our relationships? 

Personally, I want my identity to be that I am a "Child of God", "Belonging to Christ", "Saved Sinner"...So how do I make that happen?

It's realllly hard (at least for me) to live under that moniker 24 hours a day. I spend so much of my thought life consumed by Babies, Instagram, Money... And my thought life dictates how I act in my real life. Do I live my life as a daughter of God or as a blogger trying to climb the social media ladder?

So that's where I am today or rather, this year...  I'm trying to train myself to allow God to be my purpose in every area of my life, not just in my prayer and church life.

I'm not only wanting this for my own benefits. I've begun to see a sad side effect of my materialism on my children. Which is really disheartening. I mean.. I'm not ruining them by any means. But, I have for sure passed on my love for stuff to them. And I would rather my love for Jesus prevail as the major influence, in their lives.

I'm grateful for Jamy in this regard. I won't say anything to inflate his ego, in case he's reading this. But, he is definitely a wonderful role model to have around, when I find myself drifting down a material obsessed hole.

There is one area of my life where I feel confident in my Christian identity. That being in social settings. Probably because I've had a lot of practice feeling awkward and out of place. So, I've had to force myself to get over that by trusting in God. Maybe I put my foot in my mouth or did something completely embarrassing. But, that does not effect the fact that I am unconditionally loved by the only being that matters, right? So when I am tempted be nervous, I just remind myself of this and shrug the rest off.

So, speaking of social situations that would make me nervous. I will be hosting an event with some of the bloggers I admire most, next week. It's going to be a fun shopping party for my local readers. There's even a chance to win some free gift cards and swag. You can check it out HERE.

And I'll be over here focusing on my true identity and how I don't have to be nervous about a public event! ;)

Let me know if you can make it!!
