who are you?

"Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God..." John 1:12

Seeing one of our regular substitute teachers, i asked her, "Who are you today?"  
We both laughed as she answered, "I don't even know."
"That's okay, Mrs. Bea, as long as you always remember Whose you are, you will be fine."

On any given day, or hour, we take on various roles... parent, teacher, spouse, coach, referee, mediator, student, child, counselor, etc.  The mix of roles can sometimes overwhelm or bewilder us as they overlap and possibly conflict with each other.   

How can we possibly pull it all together and keep our sanity?

When all our roles fall under the umbrella of "a child of God", we gain greater peace, guidance and protection.  By claiming our identity as belonging to Him first, God will empower us in handling the various circumstances that develop during the day. 

Thank You, Father!

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
