In today’s culture, identity is a hot topic. Whether it’s identifying one’s sexual orientation, learning new ways to discover your identity and who you were made to be, or sadly, losing touch with our identity as a result of getting trapped in the game of social media comparison.
Whatever the case may be, there is only one True identity that we have to find in this world, and lucky for us, it has been hand-written by the Creator himself.
