I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. This is also Day 20 of the Write 31 Days challenge. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “discover.” We would love to have you join us.
In the midst of liminal space; jagged grace, it can be so hard to remember who we are. We forget a lot about who and whose we are. We have to rediscover the gifts God has given us. For in baptism, God calls each one of us beloved children of God.
There have been many times in my life when I’ve questioned who I was. Am I smart enough? Pretty enough etc? That is the reality for many of us. And when we find ourselves experiencing Jagged Grace, it’s easy to forget who we are; what defines our uniqueness.
But God tells us never to forget the promise of who and whose we are. It’s a full on promise! God will never take it back. It’s always there. A beautiful reminder and proclamation we never have to rediscover. God discovered it for us.
You are a beloved child of God! Do you know who and whose you are?
Thanks for the reminder of who and whose I am. It is easy to get caught up in the busyness of a jagged season and forget.
You’re welcome. It truly is easy to forget.
What a beautiful reminder. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful insight!
You’re so welcome.
So important to discover who God says we are and to hold on to that truth.
Oh, I hear you! I am always wondering how I got at certain tables, in conversation with people who are way smarter or more qualified. I’m discovering my voice and experience are powerful, no matter my education or qualifications.
Your voice truly is.
you are right, it is easy to forget that we are daughters of Christ, the King. we have been adopted into His family and have every right to all the inheritance of his blood children…b/c we have been bought with His blood! how often do we look around and compare ourselves to others and forget that we belong to Him! it doesn’t make any difference what others around us do or look like!
“Do you know who and whose you are?”
This is a great question and one my counselor often asks me during our sessions. Identity is a tricky thing in this life. Without realizing it we get caught up in comparing and envying and falling short. We have to return, over and over, to the knowledge that we are children of God. Great post!
Identity is a tricky thing. I am so glad we can return again and again and again to the knowledge that we are indeed children of God.
Beautiful post, Tara. I find that the harder things get physically, the easier it gets to keep in mind Whose I am, because His Son had to walk His own Via DOlorosa, too.
I love how you say that it’s God, not us, who makes this discovery of our worth and then reveals it to us. Another example of His love and grace.
Such a blessing today. God has discovered the beauty in all of us. Thanks for sharing your inspiration.
You are welcome.
What a great description: “jagged grace.” “In the midst of liminal space; jagged grace, it can be so hard to remember who we are. ” Love the wording here.
“In the midst of liminal space; jagged grace” I love this so much – so poetic! great insights as always 🙂
Thank You! xoxo
Rejoicing in our uniqueness and in His love today. Beautiful words, Tara!
Amen! I know whose I am and that he created me for a purpose!
