WHO ARE YOU?

Here is a question that we ask in one form or another, throughout our lives:
“Who am I?”
The answer is difficult to find because there are parts of us that are being birthed and others that are dying.
Still other aspects of our being are changing.
We are in process.
The only one who has the full anser is God.
He knows each of us fully
and loves us completely.
One important piece of this amazing and wonderful puzzle is that we must lay down any identity that is not God Himself.
If I try to build on the work I do, a skill or ability, relationships or associations, I am engaging in idolatry –
I am putting my trust in some thing or some one other than God, and am sure to fall when my idol is shaken.
Our lives are hidden in Christ; Our sense of who we are must come from that.

So, who are you?
You are Papa God’s son or daughter, precious and dearly loved. You are growing up to look like Him.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
