What a silly question one would think, Who am I ???
Who should know who I am better than me. I am the daughter of Jesse and Elaine. The seventh child of eleven children. I am the wife of Timothy, the mother of 6 beautiful daughters who loves their significant others just as I love them and Nonni to 8 precious grandchildren. I am a sibling, aunt, cousin, friend, mentor, volunteer, the list goes on and on and yet I can feel alone, void, useless at times.
How can this be?
When I turn my eyes, my heart, my thoughts from focusing on who I really am I lose the best part of me.
Who am I? We each, every day, need to ask ourselves that question as we look bleery eyed into the morning mirror.
As I’m looking into that mirror a smile suddenly comes across my face, I am comforted by the thought that I know exactly who I am. I am the daughter of the Most High, God the Original Creator of all that is beautifully and wonderfully made. I am suddenly confident that everything He has placed in my heart, my mind, my soul is attainable, that I am ANNOINTED, APPOINTED, ABLE!!!
How long does this confidence last….sometimes as long as it takes me to turn around.
Remembering who we are isn’t always just a given. Each day we must wake up with Jesus, we must go to sleep thinking of Jesus. We must search scripture to find who we are in Christ. We must take the promises of who we are and file them in our hearts and minds and every time we start to question, to doubt, we must rely on who Jesus says we are, we must reflect the essence of who He is, not our negative thinking, not copies of our neighbors, coworkers or friends.
Look in that mirror again. See the beautiful you, the co-heir with Christ with all our Heavenly Father offers, the retrieved, redeemed, restored, renewed YOU!
