Message: “Holding on to Identity” from Markus Witherspoon

Markus Witherspoon - May 29, 2022

Holding on to Identity

As we grow up, there are often many names and labels placed on us. Your grandpa may affectionately call you by a nickname, whereas that schoolyard foe may call you mean and teasing names. Then there are always the labels of middle child, athlete, scholar, class clown, goody two shoes, just like your father; the list goes on. The thing about some of those labels is that we can allow them to become the negative track that plays in our heads and subsequently the groundwork for the shame we begin to feel. The good news of Jesus is His ability to see that while some of those labels may even have truth to them, you are worth so much more than those becoming your identity!

More times than not, church culture gets a bad reputation when it comes to the subject of mental health. Too many people have gotten churchy responses, like “just pray more,” when they express the different ways they are struggling or coping with the struggles they have encountered through their life. In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, we are diving into this subject and how our faith can partner with other tools to help us all have better coping skills and work on our mental health while working on our spiritual health - because both are a life-long journey!
