Who I Am

                  Who am I?
                         Just a random chance?  An insignificant being?
                                What is my purpose?
                                              Where am I going?
                                                               Do I really matter?
                                                                             Where do I belong?

So many of us think we are unimportant, or that we would be more important if we were prettier/better at sports/more slender/didn’t do that snorting thing when we laugh…..you get the picture.
We look around us, and see unattainable heights of beauty, high expectations in what we do with our futures, the push to be popular and noticed by everyone…especially guys.

And the truth is….

We want acceptance.
We want fulfillment.
We want love.

So we reach out, stretching and grasping at these unreachable standards of beauty and lifestyle,
in hopes that our peers– or anyone, really– will accept us and love us.
We strive to impress others and live up to the standards those around us set.

And we are left feeling….

Unaccepted
Unfulfilled
Unloved

….when we fall short of the standards and expectations we were striving so hard to fulfill.

And yet, in the midst of the disappointment, discontentment, and heartache we struggle with,
a still small Voice whispers:

You are my child  {John 1:12
and my workmanship {Eph.2:10}.
I bought you with a price {1 Cor. 6:19-20}.
You are My personal witness {Acts 1:8}
You are forever free from condemnation {Rom. 8:31 -34
and any charges made against you {Rom. 8:31-34} .
You have been justified {Romans 5:1}.
You have been redeemed and forgiven {Col. 1:14}  .
I have loved you with an everlasting love {Jer. 31:3}.
You are significant {Phil. 3 :20}.
You are complete in Me {Col. 2 : 10}.

Oh the hope we have in Christ!!

We can honestly, boldly, unashamedly say:

Who I Am | Only to Be

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20~

    1. Thank you, Charlotte, for your sweet words! I am so glad God used these “scribbles” of mine to touch your heart. It’s a real blessing to be His instrument in pointing others to Him {if that makes sense 😉 }
