Defining Yourself

Who loves when a teacher on the first day of school would say “Okay now let’s go around the room and introduce ourselves. Say at least 3 things about yourself”?

Not me.

You have only a few seconds to think of what you’re going to say.

Times up.

What 3 things would you say? 

Today, I’d say I’m a wife, an aspiring writer, and… well, I can’t say I’m a location admin anymore (just quit my job)

This brings me to the question: how do I define myself if defining points in my life are always changing?

Defining points in our lives don’t have to define us. If we place our identity in things that are always changing, we will get lost in who we are.

We don’t have to be lost in who we are. Your friends don’t get to say who you are. Neither your teacher, nor boss, nor your parents, nor your spouse (if you’re married)

Who does get to say who we are?

Our creator. 

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27)

You are a creation made in the image of God!

Another way to phrase it: you are a creation that is a “representative figure” of God!

Think about that. Like actually think about that! 

Your body, your spirit, your mind, your soul are all made in his image. 

You are a walking representation of the one true God.

As we look to the one who created us, we can live with a defined unchanging identity.
