BIBLICAL POINT OF REFERENCE:
"So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come."
~2 Corinthians 5:17
Who am I today, Lord?
I can remember a time where I was strong and courageous, a time where I sought adventure and lived life to the fullest.
I can remember moments of pure happiness and complete trust in your plans for me.
And I can remember days where my only care in the world was making sure I stayed true to myself and to you.
But that’s not who I am every day.
I change, I evolve, I learn, and I grow.
I plan, I study, and I try my hardest.
And as my voice becomes stronger, I use my words as a tool and as a weapon, ready to fend off undesirable enemies.
Though I change continuously and am not always the person you want me to be, there is one thing that stays the same…
…I am your daughter.
I fight, I face my fears, and I stand firm in my faith.
I dive headfirst into the unknown waters you have put in front of me, and I swim safely to your shores.
But more importantly, I rise, and I lift my eyes to face you, my Heavenly Father.
And I see your smile, your gentleness, and your love.
Suddenly, I see…
…Today, I am myself, because that is who you have made me.
I am your daughter, as I have always been, despite the flaws, the challenges, and the crosses I bear.
And you want me. You still want me, after all that.
I need not question who I am today, Lord…
…for I am yours, and you have granted me your love.
That is more than enough for me.
