How to Get Your Identity in Christ with Hanha Hobson

If God asked you to give that up, would you?

You know the thing.

The thing you’re holding onto so tightly you’re terrified of letting it go.

That thing.

Chances are, that’s where you’re getting your identity right now.

Sometimes it’s a job, a boyfriend, your kids, or even a certain lifestyle you’re living.

If that were to change…who would you be?

Having confidence starts with knowing who YOU are.

When you’re a christian, that means first and foremost – you’re a child of God.

On this episode, I’m talking with Hanha Hobson, founder of Transparency Ministries, about how to get your identity in Christ, not in earthly things.

We both struggled with idols and relationships and insecurities that prevented us from truly letting God define us.

If that’s where you’re at right now, WELCOME!

I’m so glad you found your way here.

Everyone wants to define you

We have to start from a place of realizing everyone is going to label you in one way or another.

People will try to define who you are.

You’re someone different to everyone you meet.

Their perception of you is going to be different from how you view yourself and even how others view you.

But none of that is 100% aligned with how God sees you.

Even YOU will try to define yourself…right?

But that’s not even always the truth about who you are.

God made you, He gets to say who and what you are.

Find your identity in God’s word

Transparency ministries is all about getting real about our issues.

Then, The Confessions Project is about how to address those issues by speaking God’s true words (from the Bible) to yourself.

Confessing them over your life until slowly your thoughts and beliefs change towards truth.

It’s so powerful, it’s actually very similar to the Mindfulness Method I use in Confidently She – The Program.

If you look for what God says about you, He will show you.

Starting in His word is the best place to know what is true about your identity, your life, and your purpose.

Set realistic expectations with yourself

This won’t change overnight.

It’s hard.

Sometimes it feels lonely and sad.

That doesn’t mean you’re failing.

It’s okay to be in a place of struggling.

Keep trusting that God will bring you truth and peace in His promises to you.

We aren’t meant to be happy and carefree all the time.

This life brings trials, hurt, and pain.

So don’t believe the lie that if you’re hurting, you’re failing.

Hurt brings healing.
