One of the greatest core struggles manifesting today is the lack of identity. Missing from the heart’s of people is a true confidence in knowing who they are and what makes them unique in this world to make a difference. God has given each of us a powerful identity, but it is very rare to find those who are securely connected to it.
The reason this problem exists in great measure is because we never affirmed in our identity. Identity must be fathered and bestowed into our hearts, or we will spend our lives performing for an identity or looking for approval in all the wrong places.
Every temptation and struggle we have in our lives leads back to forgetting the power of who we are. The restoration process must involve a building of our identity as God sees us and living from the simplicity of being God’s child.
Jesus needed the experience of His Father speaking and affirming His identity. If Jesus needed to hear who He was, then you and I certainly need to hear who we are. In this teaching, I will help you to see the need to know who you are and the three needs we all carry: the need for love, the need to know who we are and the need for approval and validation.

God works His greatest power in and amongst our relationships. Yet personal relationships are often the greatest place of battles that people face.
Relationships can be incredibly challenging, but are worth the investment if we go into them with healthy mindsets. Yet we all have relationships that become incredibly toxic. We look to get away from these relationships because of how much they negatively affect us.
But before you write off the other person as having a whole list of toxic issues, be sure to check the filters that you do relationships. We often carry 3 hindering assumptions that make us blame everyone else and keep us from moving forward into what is available for us relationally.
Do you carry these hindering assumptions into your relationships?
- That you know people’s motives. (You not only know what they did, but you claim to know why they did it.)
- Your discernment about other people is 100% spot on. (Too much of what we call discernment is our own brokenness being projected onto others.)
- That other people can 100% satisfy your inner needs.
Many often say the words, “Just be yourself.” But most people do not even know what that means or what it looks like.
We have spent our lives trying to be someone else or trying to be someone that others expected us to be. In addition, we serve a lot of ways of thinking, where we say, “this is just who I am.” which is not always true.
We are the most powerfully anointed when we simply learn to be ourselves.
But what does it mean to “be yourself” while you are in the midst of transformation?
In this video, I share about some key things you can do today to enter into the rest of simply being yourself.
- Let go of pressure.
- Let go of performance.
- Let go of fabrication.
- Let go of comparison.
- Become vulnerable.
- Learn to be a child….God’s child.
- Learn to practice who you really are.
Engage the most powerful sense of Who You Are as God’s child as you best know now.

I wrote a blog article years ago about my experience of healing from acid reflux and other stomach related issues.
I also addressed this subject in a podcast episode.
But I wanted to put together another video to give you some things I learned and also some things to keep in mind when it comes to healing of our digestion tract.

When love comes your way, do you deflect it back?
Is there an unworthiness that keeps you from receiving love from God and others.
When we deflect love that is sent our way, deflecting it is not a work of humility, its an unworthy mindset that needs to be broken.
What we often call humility is actually a work of unworthiness that rejects the love that God has for us and keeps us from connecting to the higher identity that is available to us. Break through and learn to receive His love today: http://bit.ly/2eX7jnD
I work with a lot of people who feel stuck or trapped in their journey. They feel they are in the same circumstances with little change in their life. This is one simple thing I help people to do experience more freedom in their walk with God.
How do we make the change from performance based living into being secure as children of God?

Whether or not we love ourselves the way God loves us directly effects our relationships. Many times the breakdown and conflict in relationship comes down to this issue.
Here are three things that occur in our relationships when we do not love ourselves.
- We look to a relationship to be our source of filling a need, in the place of God filling it.
- We come to relationships to take and not give.
- We manifest the toxicity we carry onto others, accusing them.
