by Cary Schmidt
From looking outwardly to please others to looking inwardly to define ourselves, we constantly try to cultivate or construct our identities. But guided by the whims of culture or the faulty advice of tradition, we often find identity collapses when life falls apart or change threatens that fragile structure. Is it possible to discover an identity bolstered with unassailable confidence, strengthened for the challenges of life rather than destroyed by them, and free from the whims of cultural pressure? Yes! It is an identity received, not achieved—an identity established in the gospel.
In Stop Trying, you’ll understand why defining your identity outside of Jesus Christ is ultimately fragile, hollow, and unsatisfying. And you’ll discover that your truest and most fulfilling identity is a byproduct of a relationship that changes everything.
