Who are you? Do you know? Have you taken the time to find out? About a year ago, I was going through some major transitions and though I had already overcome a lot in my life, I felt insecure about who I was and my ability to be who I was. I was yearning, looking for someone, anyone to tell me who I was. I looked to friends; I hung onto their every word after asking them to tell me the value I added to their life. I sought answers from my children by making comments that would prompt their feedback and boy did they accommodate me. Their reassuring remarks reminded me of the good mother I had been to them through the years. Yet, even after reaching out to friends, prayer partners, family members, the preacher, prophets and anyone else who’d listen, I still felt unclear, uncertain and unhappy.
It wasn’t until I prayed to the Lord and asked to be reminded, reacquainted with the truth. “Lord, tell me who I am. I feel out of sorts and unsure of my potential, my abilities and my faith. God how do you see me?” Did you know God cares about the things concerning us; nothing is too petty to God. God took time to answer me and remind me who I was. He brought back a dream I had a few years ago where he used a tiger to show me my character, my nature. He reminded me of the time he told me I was resilient; I had quit a high paying job to pursue my life’s vision and was scared as hell! Then He instructed me to sit down and make a list of “I AM” statements; it was a heavenly download! Here is the list, I wrote this over a year ago.
I have noticed in my life, and maybe it’s true for you too, whenever I am facing major change/adjustments I tend to get a bit nervous. What I have also realized, a truth that helps me, is this, “It’s all the same”. Problems, situations, changes, and challenges they all require the same process which is to get information and take action. Maybe you’ll understand it this way, simply find out what needs to be done then do it. But that’s not the focus of this blog.
There’s this quote by Aristotle that says,” Knowing yourself is the beginning of knowledge.” I love the truth in this quote. When you know who you are, you are not easily convinced of who you are not. Learn who you are. Embrace who you are so you can have the courage to BE who you are!
