Knowing who you are – really knowing – and owning it – really owning it – is essential. In fact, it’s a divine imperative because God already knows who you are and fully accepts you just the way you are. However, knowing and owning who you are is not the end of the story, it’s just the beginning. Because once you know who you are and why you are the way you are, God longs for the Holy Spirit to go to work in your life to make you the best unique you that you can be. It’s the transformation that is at the heart of living as Jesus’ disciple. So take the first step today. Accept that God accepts you just the way you are. And then – and only then – figure out what God wants to do next in your life.
