So many people live with guilt and regret. They could label themselves a cheater, a liar, a betrayer, an addict, a murderer, a failure. And there are others who have had to endure a painful life and they might label themselves as hopeless, empty, rejected, betrayed, a victim.
If you would have asked me 9 years ago who I was I would have labeled myself "wife". If you would have asked me a few years ago who I was I would have labeled myself "mom". I have always felt like I had a surface understanding of who I was but it wasn't until I started living for Jesus that I felt like I really knew who I was - who He created me to be. If you were to ask me today who I am I would label myself "His".
Instead of living for myself I feel like I can finally say I live for Him. Instead of doing what feels right in the moment I seek His will. I do what He calls me to do even when I don't want to. When I want to be selfish I think of how selfless He is. When I find myself becoming impatient I remember that His timing has never failed me in the past. Does that mean I'm perfect? Definitely not. It just means that I do my best to live for Him every day. And by doing so I have become a better "wife", a better "mom", a better "daughter", a better "sister", a better "friend".
Who are you? You are His beloved! You are His child! You are everything to Him! Just ask him and He will show you.
