Identity.

I’ve been thinking lately. I feel like I’m going through a quarter-life crisis. If that even exists. I can’t really articulate what I’ve been thinking because it’s all over the place, but one thing I’ve been asking is who am I? What are my gifts and strengths? Where exactly am I placing my identity?

I stumbled upon a blog this morning and it was a great read for all that I’ve been thinking about lately. One thing she mentioned was how we get into the comparison game. I spend a lot of time thinking if only I was more organized, or super creative, or more outgoing and she brought up a good point,

“Instead of comparing, we need to ask God who he wants me to be, and then do that well.”
“Clothe yourself in the unique identity Christ has for you, not comparing yourself to others.”
God has created me to be me and no one else. I needed that reminder today. I can only do me well. It’s a waste of time trying to be someone else.  This is something I know and have come a long way in being confident in who God has created me to be, but it’s always nice to have a reminder and realize I’m not the only one who struggles every now and again.
So, who am I? I am a daughter, sister, friend, mentor, co-worker, sports fan, encourager, worry-wort, sometimes too sensitive, peacekeeper, and with all the good and the bad most importantly I am a child of God. And even if all else fails praise the Lord I can hang on to that fact. 🙂
