#but also why isn't there an incredibles 2
"Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.”
Today I watched The Incredibles and thought about how why isn’t there an incredibles 2 yet because that was literally an INCREDIBLE movie but also in my weird love for words this quote stuck out to me and I was reminded of who I am in Christ. I’ve been struggling to spend time in the Word and alone before God lately. As I sat tiredly and distraught over the events of the past few weeks I felt a tug at my heart reminding me of Colossians where it says that you have died but your life is hidden with Christ in God. But this quote and society and scripture all makes it clear that our identity is something that has to be fought for. My identity is in Christ but not without a fight and pursuit of obedience daily. May I seek the Lord wholeheartedly.
"text me when you get home so i know you’re safe" kinda people are the people i wanna be around
"My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth."
