Who you are and who you aren’t. Who you are is not what you have done or have. The thing is though, we so very often define ourselves by what we do or by what we have. This is fundamentally flawed for we can never do or have enough. Thus, when we think things about ourselves such as what we haven’t done or can’t do, or we have thoughts that we don’t want we run the risk of defining ourselves by those unreachable or unwanted things.
Simply put, I don’t believe everything that I think and I do believe that my thoughts are just that: my thoughts. Neither what I think nor what I do define who I am. I believe that I am a child of God and nothing can separate me from His love for me (Romans 8:38-39).
I sincerely want that belief for you too. If that isn’t this case for you then please consider this final thought: you are a created human being and what you think and do are just outcomes from you. They can’t define you as a human being, unless you let them make that false claim, that is. Separate what you think and do from who you are. You will find it hugely releasing.
A very happy new Year in 2015 to you all!
