Who Am I?
[content_box_red width=”75%”]WOW Words of Today: Celebrate! You are God’s extended feminine presence in this world. Without you, the world would have an incomplete picture of God. You are woman…God’s woman. –Mary Hollingworth[/content_box_red]
Who am I? One of the simplest questions in the world yet whole nations and generations have struggled with the answer. It doesn’t matter where we came from, why we are here or even where we are going until we know who we are. This universal query has led many of us down a perilous path in search of answers.
Scientists have looked for the answer in genetics even to the smallest living cell. Philosophers have come up with lofty ideas debating them back and forth. Historians have excavated countless clues to find out who we are. One generation appears to have grasped their identity while another rises in renewed confusion. The answer remains elusive to many suffering from a lack of identity.
More than any other this question has haunted me in my life. Even after becoming a Christian it was not immediately solved. People would continue to take advantage of me; labeling me who they thought I was or should be. Many would push me around mocking me until I wished I knew who I was. Looking back I know why. Perhaps you have struggled with this matter of finding your identity in the wrong place.
Believe it or not God has already answered this question for us in his Word. He has told us over and again who we are. Throughout this challenge we will look into the mirror of his Word and see who we are. Join me as we purpose to not become like the woman looking into the mirror seeing herself and going away forgetting what manner of woman she was.3
More and more, I think less about what others think of me and more about what my heavenly Father thinks of me. I’ve learned he is concerned and aware of our being as a whole. He wants us to believe about us as he thinks about us.
The Apostle John stated God’s heart so eloquently when he said, “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper, be in good health, even as your soul prospers.4 That covers all three aspects of our well-being body, spirit and mind.
