A few days ago, I forgot who I was.
I was in the midst of preparing for a big event.
I started to fret.
I started to worry.
I started to get a little bit grumpy.
I started to weep….I had forgotten who I was.
I asked my family for things that they could not give me.
I asked my friends for things that they could not help with.
So, I sucked it up. I told myself I could do it. I was determined to make it happen.
But…. I couldn’t do it.
It was then that I realized who I was NOT.
I was not, nor shall I ever be, SuperWoman.
Nor am I SuperHuman.
and I totally am not God.
Aha! It was then that I remembered who I was.
I am a child of God. He created me. He loves me even when I am unlovable. He calls me beautiful when no one else will. He calls me beautiful even when I feel ugly. He is my comfort when no one else is there to comfort me. He is there encouraging me when no one else can… and He is FAITHFUL!
I remembered that NO ONE knows me the way that He does. Man will never be able to take His place, nor will man ever be able to satisfy the way He can. He will NEVER let me down!
I then remembered who I was IN HIM. I am at peace IN HIM. I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He is my strength, and my shield. I can do nothing without Him. I fall short, but He does not.
I remembered WHY I do what I do… it is not for others, not for myself, but for Him… His glory! He did not create me to glorify myself. He did not create me to glorify others. He created me to glorify Him. I simply needed to trust Him.
Suddenly all was well with my soul.
He did good! (He always does)
and the event was a success … for Him!
