Whenever we meet people, we are usually called upon to define ourselves. Whether it’s at a new job, or a party, or on a date, the question usually comes up in one form or another, “Who are you?”
I am many things or rather I play different roles in my life. For years, I had identified myself with my roles and that has changed over time – daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend… I had also identified myself based on my job or career – student, singer, management consultant, broker, business analyst, and that list keeps going.
Now, I grew up in a Christian household, and actually gave my life to Jesus at a very young age. However, it is only in the past decade that my primary, unchanging identity became clear to me.
Who am I? I am a daughter of the most high God! I am a child of his grace. I am a result of God’s goodness and seriously, I am not exaggerating that at all. I am the apple of his eye. He delights in me, smiles when I acknowledge his presence, and finds pleasure when I tell him how much he means to me. This is my reality and it’s the ultimate truth. God takes pleasure in me, and in you!
My goal through this blog is to help you in your journey, while staying on my journey of experiencing God as abba, daddy, papa, OUR father. Now this wouldn’t have been possible without Jesus and the price he paid. That’s the foundation of our relationship with God.
If you don’t know Jesus, that is really know what he did for us, and accept that as the foundational truth in your life, may I have the pleasure of introducing you to him through this blog? I can promise you that you’ve never met anyone like him (I’m still discovering that myself)!
I want to explore and have everything that Jesus paid for, so join me as we meditate on God’s word about our abba, who he says we are, and what he has for us. It’s only when we clearly see and receive his gift that we can impact others toward the same truth!
