Evaluations are good.
Evaluate yourself and say "Holy Spirit, what is it in my life that is stealing, and taking from me my God-given destiny?"
We do not use evaluations to feel hopeless or to be depressed, but to be impressed with who Jesus is, and who he wants to you to be. Whatever you've gone through, Jesus can fix, heal and make your identity whole.
The answer to a healthy identity is always Jesus.
Using this Self-Evaluation, commit to spending time with God this week
Use the self-evaluation table below to determine if your identity is healthy.
The left side shows false identities you may have aligned yourself with, while the right side is what God says about you.

Hatred will not heal your pain.
Anger and rage will not lift the shame.
Revenge will not remove the deep well of grief.
A bitterness that longs to punish will only cause your own soul to die within.
Hanging on to your perception of your abuser, based on the abuse, only crystalizes your forever view of who they are.
When, in reality, God’s grace can change that person into a new creation.
Even if the abusing or offending person doesn’t change and never asks you for forgiveness for the wrongs they have done – your personal freedom is discovered in praying, “Father forgive them for they didn’t really know what they were doing.”
Don’t let the abuser or the abuse be a thief that steals your destiny.
The only path to freedom is the one modeled by Jesus, which is forgiveness.
Forgiveness does not mean a wrong was not done, but it does release you from being the final pronouncement of judgment.
Forgiveness is about your liberation and removing yourself as judge.
Let God be the judge of the other person.
