Don't Forget Who You Are

This letter is from Paul, an apostle. I was not appointed by any group of people or any human authority, but by Jesus Christ Himself, and by God the Father. -Galatians 1:1

Everyday we have people trying to tell us who we are & who we should be. We spend most of our lives trying to figure out who we are, what we’re good at, what our purpose is.

We waste years trying to be someone that God never called us to be. We try to run other people’s race, instead of the race God has for us to run. We end up frustrated, disappointed, depressed, and a slave to the opinions of others.

If you’re a Christian, it’s not up to you to decide who you’re going to be, what you’re supposed to do, or what your gifts are. It’s up to you to discover who God says you are, what God’s called you to do, and what you’re gifted at.

The sooner we can come to the realization that we are who God says we are, we’ll become grateful for who He has made us too be, we’ll find our purpose, we’ll enjoy our lives at an entirely different level, and we’ll be a thousand times more productive. We’ll finally break free from the bondage of trying to be someone we’re not, trying to impress others, and living a frustrated life.

Discover who God made you to be. It’ll be the most liberating lesson you’ll ever learn.

  1. You’re right. We live each day wanting to do our best, but we when we find ourselves being blockaded by others who only care about themselves, we are led to a conclusion of trying to be better than them or forgive and look the other way for other options to keep going. In the end, no one is better than another — whether you’re rich or poor, smart or slow, healthy or not… Just have to keep reminding ourselves that we’re not meant to live more than one life, but just our own. That should be enough. 
    Thank you.
