“Who am I?” Have you ever asked yourself this question? If you’re like me, your answer would be, “yes, more than once!” So let me continue, “Where do you find your answer?” Have you looked to others or media to define who you are? Or have you found your identity in what you do or have done? The success you’ve achieved or mistakes you’ve made. Or do you find your answer in your looks, your last name or the church you belong to?
This question, “Who am I?” is not a bad one to ask; all too often the problem lies in where we try to find the answer. I truly believe we can only solve this dilemma by seeking God’s answer to the age-old question! Trust me it’s taken me years to realize this, but in the days ahead I’d love to explore the topic more. I’ll share some of my thoughts and would love to hear yours!
So let the conversation begin…
Where have you found your answer to the question, “Who am I?”
Like I said, I’ve asked the question numerous times and have attempted to find the answer in various places. In high school I found my value in playing basketball, so when I answered “athlete” I felt good about who I was. But those feelings could change quickly when I compared myself to others and my "tomboy" looks never measured up, in those moments who I was, was never good enough. Then there are the times I’ve defined myself by the things I’ve done - the mistakes made and times I’ve fallen short and the answer I give is “failure.”
Perhaps as you reflect on your life you can see a similar pattern - when we base our identity on roles, situations or comparisons it is constantly changing and when God created us that was not His intention. He knows who I am, who you are friend and He wants us to know that as well! Join me again as together we look to discover the only answer that matters, HIS!!
