empowering women on a quest for more

Labeled by the Creator

I’m not big on name brands or labels. But there is one item in my house that still has a tag on it.

This wire basket may look like a regular basket to you but look closely at the tag. That one label sets it apart.


Magnolia is the home decor brand by Chip & Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s – Fixer Upper.

So what may look like a regular basket…isn’t.

I got up early one day, drove an hour and a half with some friends and spent more money than I probably needed to for this basket.

More than being a wire basket stuck in a bathroom with a seemingly meaningless job of holding magazines, my basket was designed by Joanna Gaines. Other people may not immediately recognize it’s worth, but I know its story. I know it’s value because I know who created it.

My wire basket may end up in the garage or under a sink.

But that doesn’t change its worth.

People may think I got my wire basket from a big box store.

But that doesn’t change its worth.

There are lots of labels assigned to us from others and from ourselves.

But just because people think that of you, doesn’t mean that is who you are. Just because a particular situation is part of your past or even your present, doesn’t define who you are.

Can I tell you something? I know Who created you and He put His signature on you. That is the label that defines you.

Don’t let the enemy or anyone else tell you any different.

Isaiah 43:1 But now, this is what the LORD says– he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
