Who are you? You are amazing.

Have you ever stopped to think about who you are? A few hours ago I sat down in the car and put my head back before a long drive home and these words popped into my head, “Who am I?”

You can imagine my concern when after ten seconds passed and I still had not come up with a satisfying answer! But why? Or perhaps, why not? Mentally, I began to follow that strand. Why couldn’t I answer that question? But as I thought, I started to think maybe I wasn’t the only one in the world who could not answer this question.

Eyes closed, I thought about everything I do, and everything I want to do in my life. And that’s when it hit me…I was asking the wrong question. It didn’t matter how many “qualities” I could name, or “answers” I could give because I realized that none of it was really relevant to what really mattered. Who I am now, is not who I will always be.

I am growing, I am learning. Even now, the person I was before I started typing isn’t who I am now as I wrap this thought up! Crazy, isn’t it?

This headache of an episode left me thinking even more. What if we stopped asking “Who am I?” and started asking, “Who will I become?” I curiously wonder what kind of answers we could all come up with–I know I have mine.

Leave your thoughts for both questions below! But please, remember, that you are amazing.

God bless,

  1. it’s an interesting question, one that I’ve been pondering more recently since as a senior i’m expected to suddenly know who I am and what I want to do with my life. when you’re being interviewed for a job one of the first things they ask you is to tell them a little bit about yourself but what is the correct answer. how are we supposed to find the words to identify ourselves with when we are constantly changing. I’m sure a hell i’m not the same person i was freshman year, or even a month ago! i guess like is just a never ending adventure searching for yourself.

    • That’s the thing exactly, we are changing! But I find that the words I speak about MYSELF, give me the motivation to become those things. Keep going, and keep growing! You are amazing:)

  2. Great thoughts, Gabe. Sister Z just asked us this very question on Friday’s devotion. BTW. Grade A+ for strong, clear writing. 🙂
