THE DEFINITION OF ME

Who am I? Am I just Benny’s wife? Am I only Cleo’s and Anna’s mom? Am I a teacher?  Am I stay-at-home mom?  Perhaps I am homeschool mom?

Who am I?  Am I all of these?  Or maybe I am none of these…Is 46 9

Do my clothes determine who I am? Am I defined by my health issues? Am I that sickly woman? What consumes my speech?  How am I known by those around me?

If all these were taken away, would I be less? Would I cease to exist?

Who am I?  What defines me?

A while back, I had a friend, who always referred to me as Mrs. Benny.  Although, I am enamored with that handsome guy, I am more than Mrs. Benny. Being married to him does not define me.  Too often I forget that what should characterize me is my relationship with Christ. John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: Too often I forget that in order to excel at the roles the Lord has blessed me with, I need to keep my eyes on Jesus. Is 46 6

I am characterized by the fact that I belong to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  His Word should define my life. Only when I do not become these roles, will I excel at them.  I will be a loving wife, a gracious mother, a patient friend, a merciful teacher, a humble blogger. I will do well and be diligent with the roles, my Lord has given to me.

In this post here, I talk more about what should define me.

What defines you?  Matt 6 33
