Identity Crisis

“I am. 
Am I?
I am who I am.
Am I who I think I am.”
These words came immediately to my mind.
I wrote them when I was 17, as a poem titled Identity Crisis.
They came to my mind today as I saw the prompt: Identity at Gypsy Mama’s place.
Who I am, who I have been, who I am now. All so different.
I have often said I have lived too many lives.
My old life before Him, the new life after His grace began a transforming work in me.
My identity true, slowly emerges as I walk through the years with Him.
As I sit at his feet and learn His ways.
Who am I?
I am His.
Oh, sweet Jesus.
 My identity is all wrapped up in You alone.
And well it should be. It is safely kept there, secure.
Where else would it rather? Where else should it be?
Nowhere dear, friend.
Not in my role as a Mom, Wife, Friend or anything else.
No. I am His. His alone.
In this way I am so much more than I could ever be trying to fulfill
each of the roles He has chosen for me.
Who am I?
I am His.

* Side-note: How joyful it was to me to write these words for our prompt today.
I remember the 17 year old very lost, wild girl I was all too well.
Today as these words poured out of me, I am so amazed by His grace I wish I could hug you all.
So consider yourself hugged today…by His grace and by a girl who has been transformed by it…is continuing to be…

Isn’t it wonderful.
Isn’t He worth Rejoicing over?
