We are made to associate ourselves with 'what we do' rather than to find value in 'who we are'. Dr. Michelle Bengston knew this all too well. She came to know the Lord at an early age and felt driven to become a Doctor to help others.
However when a seriousness illness forced her out of work she became depressed and felt she had no identity; that she was no longer of any value. Listen to her story of how God showed her that her value was in Him, she was His child. She says, "it's not about 'what you do', it's about 'whose you are'. You are a child of God and He loves you unconditionally!" What a story of hope - Jesus wants a relationship with You!
