I’ve been on a very interesting self-discovery and awareness journey and I have been unraveling very interesting parts of me. I have had to ask myself the important “who are you” question and for the longest time my answer was “I’m a creative” “I’m a blogger” “I’m an entrepreneur” it wasn’t until recently I realized while these answers song cool and badass, this isn’t who I am. What I do is not who I am. Who I am at my core is more important than what I do; who I am influences what I do.
It was a big slap on the face because this had me thinking well who the hell am I then? This gave me a lot of anxiety because I kept imagining stupid scenarios of being ask who are you and I freeze and the ground opens up and swallows me(dramatic I know but yes).
I have come to realize that the only person, who can fully say the identity of anything at all, is the person who made it. So I turned to the person that made me; God. It was a no brainer move that took me a long ass time to make.
I began to read on who God says I am in his word and internalize it. I’d pick one identity a day and repeat it to myself at random times a day, when I’m happy, when I’m sad, when I’m angry, I’d say it when I’m about to say a cuss word too lmao.
If God calls me righteous then that’s who I am
If he calls me a joint heir with Christ then that’s who I am
If he calls me Justified and redeemed then that’s who I am
I am who God says I am, I am not what I do.
