WHO AM I?
I could say I am a woman, wife, mother, writer, poet, musician, artist and that would all be true. But who am I at my core? For starters, I was created by God as I grew in my mother’s womb.
For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made.
Your works are wondrous, and I know this very well.
WHO CREATED ME?
Growing and being formed by God is proof that our bodies are remarkable and wondrous. There is nothing else in creation that compares to a human being.
On top of that, He has given me love and joy and a desire to create.
Imagination is another part of who I am as a human being.
By keeping my eyes open I can observe and learn from nature and people. Knowing God has given me new direction as I develop my talents and gifts. Nature, music and writing are all a part of me.
GOD GIVES TALENTS TO US
God created each of us with talents. We may not think they are as good as what someone else does, but they are our unique talents. He accepts our offerings no matter how small. Everyone can’t be a Michelangelo but we can share what we have.
Use what talents you possess. The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there but those that sang best. ~ Henry Van Dyke
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.
Who has God created you to be? What has He given you to share? If you aren’t sure you can ask Him to show you.
What things are you drawn to? I would love for you to share in the comments.
