Who are you?

 

Hebrews 12 (KJV)

'Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us'


People are watching our lives. Waiting to get a glimpse of who we are. Can they see the real you?

Can I describe my life in a nutshell? That is a saying that means to tell your story in a small version.

Our lives are not small. In all my 51 years I have had a wealth of experiences. It cannot be contained in a nutshell. But here I go, giving you some idea of me.

My name is Vereen. I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I am a niece, cousin, an auntie and a sister in law. I am a Grandmother, step mother, daughter in law and a mother in law.

I have been called Bubs, Muffin, Pet and Poe. Mummy, Ma, Mum, Mumma and NanaV. Cuz, Reenie, Ver and V, Reen and Wolverine.

I run a home, a business and help run a ministry. I ride a motorbike, drive a car and walk on a treadmill. I watch movies, read books and dance to loud music. I watch TV, go shopping and spend too much time on the computer. I work hard, laugh loud and eat too much ice cream.

I have been in labour 3 times but birthed 4 babies. I have danced, jumped, sang and talked my way through life. I hurt, I dream, I listen. I smile, cry and get curious. I have felt every emotion. I am a woman.

Above all, I am a Daughter of the King. One of the best decisions I have made in life is when I said ‘Yes’ to Jesus. I was 16 years old. I asked Jesus to come into my heart. He changed me forever!!!

 

John 3:16 (Amplified)

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

I have eternal life. I get to live forever.

While I am on this planet however, I need to be responsible to do my very best. That takes courage and some working out.

The Anger Management course “How I Quit Being Angry’ helps me live a better life. The tools that I use from this course helps me to get healing over hurts and encourages me to be the example of light and salt to this world. It also shows me who I am.

Do you know who you are?

I am the Daughter of God, the creator of Heaven and Earth. And I am joint heirs with Jesus.

Romans 8:17

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.

I am many things. I know who I am. And I love this life.

Romans 8v15-17 (Msg)

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children.

Who are you?
