Do you truly know “who you really are”? There may be times when you don’t feel it, but you are a beloved child of God. That is who you are.
Henri Nouwen writes: “You are not what others, or even you, think about yourself. You are not what you do. You are not what you have.
You are a full member of the human family, having been known before you were conceived and molded in your mother’s womb.
In times when you feel bad about yourself, choose to remain true to the truth of who you really are. Look in the mirror each day and claim your true identity.
Act ahead of your feelings and trust that one day your feelings will match your convictions. Choose now and continue to choose this incredible truth. Reclaim your identity as a beloved daughter or son of a personal Creator.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. Proverbs 3:5-6 (GNT)
