Self Esteem Song: "Identity" by Lecrae feat. Da Truth and J.R.

Lecrae feat. Da Truth and J.R.

This a great self esteem song because so many people find their identity in everything but the right thing. We can't define ourselves by outward superficial things like clothes, cars, status, makeup. True self-esteem and identity should come from one thing and one thing only, that's what this song is all about. 

Here are the lyrics, take a look they're amazing.

Identity feat. Da TRUTH & JR

© Reach Records

Hair check, shoes check, brand new fit looking cool check, 
looking in mirror like "ooooh yes!"/ 
cover for an insecure dude check/
She wont' feel me and they wont like me 
if I ain't in them J's or them brand new Nikes/
but lets dig deeper inside my pysche/
when it's all said and done even I don't like me/
He live in the gym and his hair stay faded/ 
late model car so they think he made it/
but he's Christian he gave his life/
but he still ain't satisfied in the savior Christ/ 
still finds his identity in looks and cars/
if he only knew that he ain't have to look so hard/
If looked in God though it may seem odd he be so satisfied he could leave it all/

(D.A. T.R.U.T.H.)
How do I gauge success/
Why do I say I'm blessed/
Is it the car that I drive or the place that I rest or the way that I dress, now/
Is the cause of my pride, the stage and the set or my face in the press, now/
Cause the applause it dies/
When the praise is less if my face is depressed, then/
It's cause my value and worth is in the volume of the work I produce in the booth
It's a prize and a curse if defined by the perks when the truth is through
Man I'm goin' feel like I don't want to live no more/
Cause they don't like me like they did in 04/
So, I swallow my pride empowered by God, I'm complete in Him/
He's got peace/
God's priest/
I'm in/
In His presence weak-His strength/Meet His kin/We His brethren/Read this list/Me forgiven/
He's dismissed guilt and my sin and I find my worth cause I'm Jesus' friend

Got her hair done, toes and nails/is that Her? well it's hard to tell/ 
cause she's caked up in so much make up/ 
it's like she's tryna make up for what she ain't but/ she's a saint/ 
but so confused/ 
cause she's been rejected by all these dudes/ 
that tell her on a scale of 10 she's a two/ 
but that ain't true if she only knew/ In Christ she is loved she secure and accepted/ 
She'll never be rejected by God who's elected her/ 
Her beauty is her Godliness/
and she ain't gotta try to flaunt it cause it's obvious/
Identity is found in the God we trust/ Any other identity will self destruct

I'm not the shoes I wear. I'm not the clothes I buy/
I'm am not the house I live in/ I'm not the car I drive/
I'm not the job I work /You can't define my worth/
By nothing on God's green earth, my identity is found in Christ
