Who am I?
Sometimes we forget! We’re so and so’s wife, parent, child or employee. We loose who God created us to be. We get so engulfed with the expectations of others and the guilt consumes us if we don’t fulfill their every desire or fix their every pain, that we diminish our importance. We forget that we are God’s child, one who He placed in this particular body, particular place, particular everything so that we could fulfill His desires. And we forget to do that freely. We have value outside of all the earthly things pulling at us, filling our spaces. No one or thing can take that away from us. Even more personally from you, from me!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
