Who I Am

I realized the incredible difference in the two statements: who am I and who I am. The first being a question put forth by someone who is searching for an answer as to their identity. Iíve often used this question to make a point with my children as they try to tell me how life is. But to be asking this question to the world or to another person usually indicates a need for understanding who they are in life. The thing is, itís a question we should know the answer to and yet many of us do not.

I was in a conversation with a friend recently when this very subject came up. We werenít really talking about identity as much as we were speaking about how we come to be who we are and how confidence and loving ones self play important roles as adults. But if you address who you are, sometimes we see who we arenít and who we need to be.

Let me try to explain better what I mean. When you walk into a room or building that contains a lot of people that you donít know personally, how do you feel? I donít know about you, but I can become intimidated very quickly. Mainly because I have many short comings and my mind tries to tell me everyone is looking at my size or my haircut or my in-expensive clothing. The truth is, many around me might be thinking the same things as I am. In the midst of all that, itís good to remember who I am. That Jesus died the same for me as he did for any other person there.

But ask yourself that question; Who am I? Are you a significant person to some one else? Are you a life changer? Are you going somewhere in life? Have you taken the time to know how important you are? You see, we get so busy in our day to day that we forget there are things we need to get done in life. Challenges make life better and more interesting. We donít always like challenges, but they make us better people. I guess what I am asking myself these days, I might ask you. Are you really doing all that you can do? Are you really making a difference? Each one of us is a sorta cog in the wheel and without one another weíre not all there.

I learned something here ( I hope you do as well). I grasped the distinction between those two statements. Asking who am I is the question put to Christ within me. He answers ďYouíre my son. I have made you and saved you. You are mine.Ē Now I can boldly say who I am!
