In a world where we are increasingly addicted to computer screens, to how many “likes” we receive on social media, and to being recognized for our work, it’s not long before these addictions feed into what we believe about our identity. Many of us are caught in a constant cycle of striving, thinking to ourselves, “I must do more and be more”.
Knowing this, we pose a question: You may know every popular vendor, every famous photographer, every fabulous wedding site, every fashion blogger, every artist and print designer, but do you know what is of most importance? Do you know the very one you were created for, and do you rest in the identity graciously granted to you by Christ Jesus? Or, has this identity been hijacked by your day-to-day successes and failures?
All of life is affected by who we believe we are in Christ. Having a secure understanding of our identity allows us to fight against the temptations that come knocking at our door. It helps us turn the focus off our kingdom and ourselves, and back on the One it was intended for.
Don’t get us wrong- we as women creatives love what we do and are so thankful for it, but we desire to create work that flows out of a joyful heart. As the busy season slows down for us, we recognize our need to return to rest. And the rest we are looking for? It is found in nothing else but knowing and believing our identity granted to us through our Savior.
Do you find yourself with similar desires? If so, we invite you to come join us for a weekend of rest. For the Lord has dealt bountifully with us…
