On Friday mornings, The Gypsy Mama (Lisa Jo) spreads a feast before us consisting of a challenge:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
Today’s word is IDENTITY.
What is my true identity? As my blog name implies, I’m not just a name. I’m many things. A daughter, a sister, a wife and mom, now grandma and great-grandma. A servant, nurturer, mentor, volunteer. A writer, blogger, quilter, knitter, reader. So many things.
But when others see me they recall my name first, if they know me. And many know that I’m all these things.
What about others who don’t know me so well? What do they see? Who might they think I am?
I’m hopeful it’s the one true identity I’ve not yet mentioned — Child of God, believer, Christian, follower.
Yes, that’s who I hope they see or might soon see as they get to know me. That is the true identity of who I am and what makes me all those other things I listed above.
My true identity is what God calls me to be. My identity was paid for by His son dying on the cross. Blood was shed for me, so that I might be a Child of God whose sins were already covered.
as Christ also loved us and given Himself for us,
an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
