God can solve the Identity Crisis

Naturally, a child wants to know where they came from and who they are. For Example, if a child is adopted or raised by family members other than their birth parents, there is just something in them to want to know the "unknown" about themselves.

It can be the same way when we accept the Lord Jesus as our Savior and as we become to know Him, there is this strong desire we have inside of us to know what our purpose is on this Earth and to fulfill it. I think it is beautiful how God has created us: He formed us when we where in our mothers' womb. Isnt that amazing? To know that God literally crafted us and designed us; everything about us in our mothers' womb! Now that's an amazing GOD!

The thing is, sometimes we become frustrated with the process of seeing our dreams realized and walking in the purpose that God has for us. Even if we have identified what our passions and gifts are; if we feel we are not able to use those gifts or passions as much as we would like, it can be discouraging. Then the devil tempts us to compare ourselves to others and even sometimes try to be like someone else. This is not God.

God's plan for our lives far exceeds what anyone else's plan for us (including ourselves) may be. He's not copy cat, only original and He wants the same for us! He has the blueprint for our lives and He knows how to go about the process of seeing it completed and fulfilled.

Nevertheless, Our identity is not in what we do, but we can only be completely fulfilled once we find our identity in Him. He's the one that created us! He is the one who makes us whole. Thank you Jesus!

So, let's make knowing Him our priority and trusting His leading and direction for us. And if you get discouraged, just know that He loves you SO much and His thoughts towards you are many! His love has made us whole!
