Identity!

The word for today is identity!
There are many people I encounter every day who seem not clear about the meaning of their own life and they look lost!
If you feel lost you can perceive it in every area of your life both private as well as public.
Socrates stated that it was imperative to be honest with oneself and above all to know oneself.
Identity begins with really knowing yourself!
In addition to Socrates, I would also like to mention Jesus of Nazareth who at the beginning of his ministry knew who he was, where he came from, and especially where he was going!
If we put these three things together we will have a strong sense of our identity.
Until I know myself I can not know others. That is why we must love our neighbor as ourselves. If I do not love and know myself loving and knowing others it’s an impossible business!
It all starts with ourselves and the importance of knowing who we are and where we are going. This is the basis of every action worth living!
That’s why knowing my identity makes us secure.
He who is insecure does not trust others; Who is insecure does not value other people; Those who are insecure will not leave any footprint of their life!
We can not give what we do not have.
For this reason to know our identity is imperative to live a life that counts!
here is a word of encouragement:
God not only knows who you are but He has created you for great things! 
He has created you in His image and has given you talents!
If this does not mean that He believes in us, I would like to know then who can believe in us!
If God believes in us why then don’t we believe in ourselves?
Fall in love with who you are!
Fall in love with what you are capable of doing with the unique talents you have!
Think about this: Who created you did all this for you, so why don’t you do the same for yourself?
Knowing our Identity is the key step in moving from mediocrity to truth and from truth to the freedom to live a life worth living!
