Do you know who you are?
Do you know who you are? I'm so thankful that I've finally found myself. It's taken nearly forty years and the road has been a rough one at times. I finally feel secure in my self and my identity. I am a child of the King of Kings, I am a woman, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a lover, a help meet, a other half, a mother, a friend, a warrior, an intercessor, a cry baby, a grump, a worrier, a dreamer, a teacher, a follower, a leader, a chef, a maid, a chauffeur, a CEO, a student, a gardener, a writer, a reader, a red head, a blonde, a brunette, ;), a hard worker, a procrastinator, a go- getter, a lazy lump, a list maker, a note taker, an insomniac, a sleepy head, a woman in pain, victorious, prayerful, funny, crazy, serious, sad, optimistic, loving, confident, unworthy, graceful, clumsy, inspiring, frustrating, passionate, woeful, joyful...... I am all these things and so much more. I am thankful that I'm sure of my identity in Christ and that I am constantly growing, changing and evolving. I'm thankful that I've finally come to terms with the lies of my past and the knowledge that I am not the words, hurts or labels that others put upon me. I am me- good, bad and ugly. Praising God for finally being at that place where it's ok to be who I am.
