Who Am I?

Future Rock Star

I have an article featured on Encouragement Café today that I would love for you to read and then come back and share your thoughts in the comment section.

Here is just a small sample of the article:

We fall victim to societal pressure to believe that our appearance, status and possessions will make our lives better. When we give into this notion, we are letting society construct our identity. The real question we need to ask ourselves is where does our identity come from?

Another way to put this is: What types of things define a person? Say, for example, you were to introduce yourself to someone you do not know: How would you define yourself? Would you define yourself by your family relationships, by a professional title, or lack of one, or by where you live or go to church? People generally define themselves by age, intelligence, education, marital status, material things, and family…

What lies about yourself do you need to replace with God’s truth today?

  1. The reoccurring theme in my life is fear of failure and not being good enough. I will find the negative in myself; and attribute the good as a fluke! I need to remember I am fearfully and woderfully made! Another area I need to replace is not asking for help. God do not want us to travel this journey alone! I sometimes think asking for help is a sign of weakness and shows that I am not capable of handling are than one thing at a time. Currently, I’m in a season where I am a stay at home wife. I’m learning that title is more like CEO! I put the added pressure of because I am at home, I should be able to do it all. I envision being the Proverbs 31 Woman! But, she couldn’t do it all and had help, Proverbs 31:15b. God provided her help, and I shouldn’t be prideful and ask for help when I need it.

  2. Defining myself, that was a tough question. I would want to say Godly woman or a woman who loves God and wants to pursue a life that worships Him. But I don’t think I’m quite there, yet. I don’t feel that my devotion is with my entire heart. The video was really nice. I wish more girls and women could understand that so much of what we see is fake. Sure, it’s nice to have pretty clothes and feel good in what you wear, but not at the expense of your self-esteem, your health and most of all your relationship with God.
