Identity

If you have been reading my blog posts, you know that I have been sharing a lot about my own experiences with racism. My hope is to bring awareness to what me and my family face daily along with many families around the world. I realize, too, that with being a fair-skinned multiracial black woman, I do not experience the same things as someone who has darker skin, aka privilege. I can talk and expand more on that later. This is NOT to spread hate.

I have paused on this more recently because it is exhausting trying to explain and educate. It’s just as exhausting to live with. I realize that my identity is not in who people say I am and what they may say about me and my family. Those things are just lies from the devil himself.

It is also still Black History Month and I don’t want to continue spreading the negative stories. We see and hear enough of that on the news every day. So I am going to share with you some of the things we have learned as a family and our own joyful experiences for the rest of this month, including some of the other topics I’ve been discussing here on my blog too.

I am going to leave you with a few verses that have been helpful for me on this journey through topics of racism and in my identity in Christ. I hope this helps you too.

“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!…”
1 John‬ ‭3:1‬a NLT‬‬

“For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:26 NLT

“In Christ’s family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:28 MSG
