2. Only allow God to define you, never the offense.  For some of us ladies this is particularly hard. We absorb the wrongs done to us and allow the shame and pain to define who we are.  When we look in the mirror it is as if we are wrapped in the hurts we have lived through and all we see is a woman who was used, divorced, abandoned, sexually abused, soiled, unwanted etc. 

God never meant that for His precious daughters! To really receive the healing that Christ went to the ends of the earth to offer, you must allow your Creator to be the only one with access to your identity. True healing will come when you choose to believe what His word says about you over anything and everything else. Like the verses that describe God's character, plaster your world with verses that will remind you how God sees you -- His beautiful daughter.

If circumstances around you look a bit dark, make a conscious effort to choose to believe that God's goodness and sovereignty cover your precious life. When we believe Him over the information that our short-sighted human perspective provides we will soon find that the darkness around us has become the "shadow of His wings"- and that we are tucked in next to our Father's heart, which is the safest, and dearest place a child of God can rest her head.
