Beautiful Feet Tidbit: Who am I?
This is a very common question that we all face throughout our lives. As we become an adult and begin to face our biggest trials and tribulations, we often realize that we have no idea who we are. It seems that we often forgot our identity. Either we've forgotten our identities or we never knew what it was.
Often when we go through difficult times or we face difficult decisions, we continue to question our identities. We are trained to believe that our identity is formed by our social status. our careers, or the amount of money that we have in the bank. Also we begin to believe that our identity is created by the company that we keep.
I've got to be honest with the reader, Right now I am facing a hefty decision. This challenge has me thinking deeply about who I am and what I am meant to be. In my mind I know that I need to pray for direction and trust Jesus to lead me to the right decision. While my mind knows this truth, my heart often finds itself straying away from my mind, leading me down a trail of questions, anxious thoughts and worry.
Maybe you're in a similar boat. You have a large decision ahead of you and you're worried about it. Maybe your facing a difficult fork in the road and you're unsure the path that God wants you to take. The longer to stare at the fork in the road, you more time your mind journeys down the two opportunities, creating fearful possible outcomes that paralyze you with worry and anxiousness.
In this time we must believe that God is all powerful and we must rest in this fact. We must spend time in prayer, handing our worry and stress to our almighty father. We must know that God is God over all. Now, I know this all sounds cliché and overstated, yet it is absolutely true!
Jesus loves us!
Jesus loves us so much that that as He allows us to navigate through these dark and difficult time He journeys ahead of us lighting our way as we navigate through. Jesus never leaves us. He never abandons us. In all actuality, Jesus is with us through the difficult times and hefty decisions.
Due to the fact that Jesus loves us and is with us daily, we should pray to Him daily and ask Him to lead us and give us clarity. We need to remember that our difficult times strengthen us. God uses these moments to bring us closer to Him and more dependent on his plan and His will.
