Knowing who we are is an essential ingredient to a great life. So many times I see people of all ages spending loads of energy on trying to be who they think they should be. It’s hard work being who you are not! You have to constantly be checking what you are doing, that you are keeping up the appearance of being that person, and some people even try and dress to fit the profile. So even more hard work, trying to figure out what to wear that would make you look like who you think you should be… whew I am tired already just thinking about it. I do however understand this, because I have been there and done it so many times. I spent the first 30 years of my life trying to be the person I thought I should be. Thankfully I figured out how to be me and how to love me! I found an amazing freedom that few people find in this day and age which is why you will find that I talk about identity very often.
If you struggle with identity and you are not sure who you REALLY are, then may I encourage you to work it out… one small step at a time.
The first step that I recommend would be to get into the Bible.
If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free – John 8:31-32
Get to know the truth about your creator as we are made in His image – Genesis 1:26 Ask Him to show you the truth about who you are. Our God is so faithful and He is for us not against us. I can vouch from experience that He will show you who you really are if you just ask!
