Becoming who we are
is a process
well worth the effort.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people of all ages ask, “How do I find my purpose?” or “How do I find my destiny?”
My answer is: how can you find your purpose and destiny if you don’t know who you are, if you’ve spent your whole life being who someone else wants you to be?
Jesus continues to help me win the fight to become who I was born to be. Each jaw-dropping victory chips away the restrictive crust of others’ opinions, and only then can I believe a touch more of my purpose and destiny.
It’s a process. It’s hard work, sometimes painful work, but so exciting! Nevertheless, we can’t do it alone.
For those of you who struggle to find your true self, whether you are great or small, welcome. It’s for you I created this blog: On Becoming.
Sure, like you, I’d rather present a perfected image of myself as being the all-knowing sage, but I don’t think that would help anybody. It is in my weakness He has been strong, so I’ll probably spill my guts from time to time.
I reserve the right to delete any comments I deem harmful, critical, negative, or not helpful in the healing of a wounded soul. As they say in 12-Step groups, take what you like and leave the rest.
I hope you find comfort, friendship, encouragement, wisdom, and peace here. May God be with you as you engage in this journey with me.
Thanks for taking time to pop in!
