Katelyn Robinson, senior Education major at Mary Hardin Baylor, headlines our #fridayintroductions this week; I’m loving her guest post below!
“When I laid my life in God’s hands, He began working on me in ways I couldn’t always see. It seems like every day He reveals a new aspect of my identity in Him.
Slowly, but surely, His unconditional love for me is teaching me to love myself.
My identity is no longer found in the mirror, the numbers on the scale, or my past riddled with struggles and an eating disorder. When I look at my life now, Romans 12:2 comes to mind. I am no longer a slave to the opinion and standards of society, and IT. IS. GOOD.
My fears and past have been drowned by His perfect, unyielding love, and dear friends, this freedom is exhilarating! With God at the center of our goals, we learn to rely on a strength that is not our own and to follow a plan greater than we could imagine.
So I want to encourage you, dear reader: If you’re in a season of doubt, struggle, or really any season of life, strive to live in wholehearted surrender.
As our precious Jesus said in Luke 22:42, “.. not My will, but Yours, be done.”
