Everyone has their story, their own testimony. The best thing about each of our stories is that they are all unique, no two stories are exactly the same. In addition, just as each of our stories is unique so are each one of us.
|I an Fearfully and Wonderfully made|
There are times that I forget who I am, but then the lyrics to Matthew West’s song “Hello, My Name Is” echoes through my soul. “Hello, my name is child of the one true King/ I’ve been saved/ I’ve been changed/ and I have been set free/ Amazing Grace is the song I sing/ Hello, my name is child of the one true King,” these words help me to write my own “Hello, My Name Is” name tag which expresses the trials I have faced and who Christ is shaping me into. When I reflect over these concepts I see He has created me into: a sweet, caring, generous, loving, courageous, strong person, and most importantly an overcomer. Our name tag does not hold our failures or who we were in the past. It holds the victorious child of Christ. It projects our acceptance of knowing that through Him we are made good. That we are made in His image, and just as He is perfect, in turn we are perfectly imperfect. Our father has made us all flawless.
My prayer for those that are reading this is that we don’t allow others to define who you are. God created each and every one of us with our own unique looks, personalities, gifts, talents, and testimonies. Also, that no matter what, that we remember that God loves us just the way we are despite the battles we are facing and the scars we may carry.
