Looking for the Real Me

Wanted:

The young girl that used to believe in miracles and wonders.

The one that thought she could take on the world and never fail.

The girl who believed in herself and knew she was special.

The girl who wouldn’t let those mean words get through to her heart.

Wanted – the innocence again of childhood.

See,  I have looked to many things to ‘find myself’.  Maybe you have too.  I looked to the world, I have looked to relationships, I have looked to money and jobs, I have looked to things like alcohol and drugs, I have looked to psychology and 12 step groups.  I have even looked to church.  But like Joseph and Mary long ago, I lost Jesus at the church.  I worshipped the religion, but not the man – Christ Jesus. That was another 10 year adventure right there.  But I never found her – that little girl lost, until I looked to Jesus.  When I looked to HIM, I found ME!

This post reminds me of who God says I am…

Who I am in Christ – encouragement for the weary soul.

And a big thank you to iChristian and Steve Rebus for turning me on to this series – real people, real stories, and hope.
